Class of 2014


                                                   


Here are the new faces (and heels) of underground wrestling in 2014. Most of them have received at least a nod here on Ringside at Skull Island at some point in the year. Some of these rookies have already reached icon status, while others are still polishing their craft for future glory. 

I've done my best to make the list as complete as possible. Please don't hesitate to point out any glaring mistakes or omissions*. I haven't seen everything, of course; my billfold's too skinny to keep up with the immense output of everything I'd like to keep my eye on. The good news is the m4m wrestling scene has ballooned in the last ten years.

With this much new talent, it's hard not to wonder which ones will have staying power in years to come. And what amazing new stars await their debuts in 2015?

* I let Can-Am and other leagues drop off my radar this year. I actually did buy a number of Can-Am DVDs, but mostly classic 1990s-era matches I'd missed or lost (or my dog ate). I'm interested in hearing about the promising newcomers I've missed at Can-Am and other promotions.

[THANKS TO TY ALEXANDER FOR POINTING OUT THAT I HAD MISTAKENLY USED DRAKE MARCOS'S PHOTO INSTEAD OF KAYDEN KELLER'S. MY APOLOGIES TO KAYDEN. I HAVE CORRECTED THE MISTAKE.]

  2. This year's best introductions were easily Dash Decker and MARCO...both guys are very talented fighters, extremely good looking, and are not afraid to tease and taunt their prey as they dispatch them.

    Runner-ups include: Gunner (who unfortunately has all but disappeared from Thunders), Bruce Ballard (very handsome and fit body but hides too much of his beautiful behind and rock hard legs), Cal Bennett (very sexy, but a few too many tattoos and a weak wrestler), and bullish bulls Kratos and Big D.

  3. I like Decker and Dimaggio. I also like Ty Alexander he's not what you see normally with these bigger body builder types and the boy can take a beating for sure. Also he is very seductive and gets into the wrestling and erotic side of it and makes it very hot. Can't wait to see more of him
