If wrestling tapes do well in your store, this series is a must-stock. If you don\'t stock wrestling videos, start here.
The Eroto Wrestling series is definitely formulaic, but that formula is also a definite winner. Each tape contains three matches. A sample match goes something like this: Two opponents introduce themselves, give a few statistics and boast a challenge. Then the match begins, usually in street clothes. The clothes begin to come off or are ripped off. The match continues in skivvies. Then they drop their drawers and continue to wrestle. The winner gets a blowjob, or occasionally fucks the loser. The opponents each speak again. Good sportsmanship is promoted as the guys compliment one another's prowess on the mat as they recap the match. This works because of high-profile, good-looking stars who can actually wrestle. The brief, bare-bones sex is icing on the cake, and only comprises about 10 percent of the running time, but wrestling fans won't find that to be a problem.
Probably the best match is between Cody Tyler and Matt West in Vol. 3. Though Tylers is a good head taller than West, and considerably heavier, these guys can both wrestle and their experience shows. No blowjob at the end, they each jerk off -- Tyler shooting a very impressive load. Tyler has another great match in Vol. 5 with Steve Shannon. Other notable matches are Anthony Gallo topping handsome Drew Andrews before stuffing his enormous uncut cock down Andrews throat and ass in Vol. 3, and Mar, Mason teaching smart-ass Collin Jennings a lesson on the mat before plugging his hole in Vol. 4. Vol. 5 has a Western theme throughout, with all opponents dressed as cowboys when the matches begin. This could well be a sign that as the series progresses, there will be an attempt to introduce new and interesting narrative elements to the wrestling genre.
The editing style of this series is particularly good, and should be noted as a pre-nom. Vol. 3 should also get a pre-nom nod in the Best Gay Specialty Release category.
