Minhyuk is happiness.  He is caring for his members more than he cares about himself.  It’s putting aside his own insecurities to help his members become better people.  He is smiles and comfort.  He is the protection of monbebes.  He is the life force of Monsta X that the members and monbebes cliing to when they’re feeling down.  He’s more than his face and body.  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MINHYUK. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.

Running the Ropes -  Super Muscle Bomber: The International Blowout /  Ring of Destruction: Slam Masters II (Capcom, Arcade, 1994)


Just appreciating the basics here. How a wrestler bounces off the ropes dictates a lot about their style. I always appreciate the extra mile of having unique animations for hitting the ropes, even though it’s rarely implemented.

The Zodiac arrives in WCW
[July 15th, 1995]

The 90s were weird as fuck. In this video, the former Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake debuts in WCW as a gift to Kevin Sullivan from The Master (also known as King Curtis Iaukea) to rule in The Dungeon Of Doom. Beefcake’s character in WCW is known as The Zodiac, the fourth name that Ed Leslie would be known as in WCW, but the second pairing he’d have with Kevin Sullivan (the previous being one third of The 3 Faces Of Fear). I love how WCW knew exactly what they were doing with Beefcake by giving him the little dialogue they did, and boy did he knock it out of the park. Soon after The Zodiac debuted, he turned on The Dungeon Of Doom, being revealed by Hulk Hogan as being a mole to help aide Hogan in his feud with Sullivan. Afterward, Leslie became known as The Booty Man.

*Sigh* Did someone in WCW hate him, or?

Also, King Curtis Iaukea is no relation to The Artist Formerly Known As Prince Iaukea.

Bad Bob Zimmermann is a master thief. Jack has to wrestle with his father’s legacy of cat burglary, and becomes a Robin Hood-esque figure, robbing only those who he figures will not be significantly hurt by this. When stealing the famous Knight Sapphire, he meets Beauchamp Knight, who wants to rebel against his parents and begs to join him in his quest. Slowly their band of thieves grows, until they run up against Agents Eric Bittle and Larissa Duan, the FBI agents dedicated to catching them and stopping them once and for all.

“Body Slam” [Arcade Flyer]

  • via The Arcade Flyer Archive
  • This rather blah flyer for a forgotten wrestling game fails to do its premise and history justice. In Japan, this game is known as ‘Gokuaku Doumei Dump Matsumoto’, a tie-in for the female wrestler named in the title: Dump Matsumuto. The game itself is based on the All Japan Women’s Pro-Wrestling league, (aka Zenjo) which was popular in Japan from the late 1960’s until the turn of the millennium—it went defunct in 2005.

    There were a few more games released with the Zenjo license: for example, fans of Broken Pixels may remember the laughable PC-FX FMV fighter Queen of Queens. While this one is as obscure as the rest of them, you may have heard of it by its Sega Master System name: Pro Wrestling, which swapped out Zenjo for the WWE.
