WoW - Wallpaper of the Week

John Cena

John Morrison

I couldn't find any interesting guys having birthdays this week, so I went with a theme. That being professional wrestlers, all in their early 30s.

An odd sport, that. The only one I know where the amateur version is more "genuine" than the professional. Some of the differences are described here.

It's funny, I can remember my dad watching pro wrestling. I'd watch sometimes too, because, well, men wearing only trunks. But to me they seemed blocky and not in great shape, thus not terrific drool material.

Fast forward to now. What a change! This versus this, for example. The bodies on these guys are crazy, in a good way. And it's like gay porn, with all that sweaty grabbing and grappling. Almost as much as MMA is. Now there's something I'm amazed they don't have a parental advisory for before each show. Nor am I the only one with that thought.

Randy Orton first. He's the most thuggish looking of the ones in this post. Yet I find him attractive. Why, I wonder?

Next is John Cena. His wrestling persona is brutish, what with the rapper shtick and such. But then you see a picture like this and think, "Awwww". Love what's above the neck, that square jaw and rectangular face. He's also rather erudite, which he demonstrated when he appeared on NPR.

Last but not least is my new favorite John Morrison (real name John Hennigan). He's gone through various name changes in his career, but I first saw him when he started using the Morrison moniker. Inspired by Jim Morrison, apparently. I always wondered what Jim would have looked like if he'd worked out like a mofo, and now I have my answer. His physique reminds me of Craig's; they both have that negative body fat look. It's like looking at a living muscle anatomy chart. I could almost forgive Sci-Fi for adding wrestling to it's line-up, since it introduced me to Johnny boy. Almost.
