I'm glad BG East is giving Kid Karisma, 5'8", 170#, some tougher competition lately, serious brawlers like Dev Michaels, Blaine Janus, and now in Undagear 22 Ray Naylor, 5'9", 150#. Not that I'm unhappy that BGE often gives Kid K free rein to scramble slim, pouty twinks for breakfast. Nobody does that better than Karisma, not with such gusto and malevolent ingenuity anyway. But I do think he also likes a good rough romp with somebody who puts up a good tussle. In his underwear match versus Ray, a man with sadistic tendencies that are hardly inferior to K's, he nettles his opponent and persistently pushes the fight to its limits. It's not hard to read the chemistry here: macho territoriality run amok. These two did not take to each other, and tempers flare up quickly, more intensely as the battle wears on. To cite the BGE catalog (104.2) description:
It goes for four falls, each one sweatier, noisier, more brutal, and frankly more boner-inspiring than the last. Neither of these wrestlers enters any match with any thought other than to utterly destroy his opponent, but as tempers flare and egos get bruised (if not demolished), caution gets thrown to the wind, especially as the match draws to its tempestuous, physically abusive, ball-busting and butt-baring finale. At an action-packed 28 minutes, this fight would be a classic even sold by itself, alone on a disk. BG East ALWAYS goes the distance.
