/// - Onyx got his revenge for the beating he took at the hands of Xavier in Bring the Pain by setting him up to be destroyed by his Soldiers of Onyx (Xtreme and newcomer Juice) in Tag Team Beatdown 2 (an idea he likely got from the beating he himself took at the hands of Thunder and Marz in Tag Team Beatdown 1). And Xtreme went one on one against Rage in Bodybuilder Breakdown #4 series now that he's put on almost 30 pounds of extra muscle!
/// - BWN Africa was released with Sipho vs. Justice as two expert fighters in an intense matchup shot on location in South Africa. It's been a while since we've seen such good back and forth action with skill. And on the 15th, Baby Prince accepted Babyboy's challenge in Baltimore Brawl. As usual, Babyboy didn't fight fair and this one won't be pretty. BWN Members also started receiving their complimentary monthly BWN Video Magazine.
/// - Our site re-launch took off with the release of Predator & Prey pitting the always sexy Marcos against incredible newcomer Panther, who ripped into Marcos as his first victim in his impressive debut. On the 15th, another ripped newcomer, Valentino, arrived to face Lennox in Submission 9 but was utterly vanquished by his more experienced opponent. Usually, we introduce one new wrestler per month (on the first of the month) but since we didn't introduce a new wrestler in August or September, we introduced two new wrestlers in October.
/// - Website upgraded to faster server with more storage, new interface design, improved navigation, new sections added, VISA acceptance for memberships, new shopping cart software, WEB-TV compliance added for graphics, new benefits for BWN Members including free monthly video magazine.
/// - Our first-ever bodybuilder vs. bodybuilder match took place in Bodybuilder Breakdown #3 when both Rage and Titus each got their chance to redeem themselves after the beatings they each took from Assassin in Bodybuilder Breakdown (Titus) and Bodybuilder Breakdown #2 (Rage). And while Titus technically won his match against Assassin, Rage was truly squashed in his debut against Assassin so perhaps he had more to prove. Both wrestlers wore their posing suits for this match, which made for some very sexy eye candy. The match ended with someone walking in after the winner had apparently beaten his opponent. We'll find out who that was real soon.
/// - Christopher's big brother Champ showed up to beat the crap out of Lennox for beating on his little brother in the aptly-titled Christopher's Big Brother match (part of the newly renamed Payback series formerly known as the Grudge Match series). The surprising thing about this fight was how effective Lennox can be when facing a musclebound opponent like Champ; while not as muscled of course, Lennox was able to dominate Champ for much of the match despite the size difference. More than once, it looked like Lennox might actually defeat Champ with some grueling submission holds including a crossface that had Champ in agony as well as a figure four. In the end, Lennox got what he had coming for beating on Champ's little brother, but this was a very back and forth match shot with excellent lighting that brought out the sexy features on both wrestlers.
Also in July, Baby Prince arrived as a rentboy masseur for Gemini. After wrestling and defeating Gemini (in a match we haven't released), Baby Prince takes on Marz in Hot Boyz 2. Although Baby Prince showed some surprisingly good skills and quickness, Marz repeatedly and mercilessly works over his back and crushes him in the end. Bonus footage of Gemini being massaged (nude) by the newcomer. Very sexy. And if the feedback on the Blackboard is any indication, it looks like Baby Prince will become a very popular wrestler here at BWN Video.
/// - Exotic Wrestling #4 introduced Storm in a completely different setting than what he's done thus far, much to the delight of fans as noted on the Blackboard, when he faced (and destroyed) Marcos. Shot with the guys wearing g-strings (as is usual for this series) on the set of Keith Boykin's WARRIOR event in Washington, D.C. Includes bonus Marcos shower footage.
Also, the compilations Sampler 5, Sleepers 3, and Scissors 3.
/// - Rage gets thoroughly destroyed in his debut against Assassin in Bodybuilder Breakdown #2. Despite his better physique and ripped muscles, Rage runs out of energy. Short of stamina, he becomes a muscled toy for Assassin. Sweaty squash match. Rage was much improved in his second match when he faced Titus in August in Bodybuilder Breakdown #3.
The re-launching of the long dormant Submission series couldn't have had a better kickoff than the one it was given with the debut of Christopher against Lennox in Submission 8. Lennox dominates the bright-eyed newcomer and then...takes it too far. Christopher begs Lennox to stop and eventually threatens to call his big brother! Lennox laughs that off but later faces his big brother in July. Christopher arrives as an instant star. First video shot on the new set. (Probably, Lennox abused Christopher because he was still mad at the beating he himself took from Onyx in his debut in Black Box 6 which was supposed to have started a winning streak for him, but instead ended with Onyx taking a shortcut and then humiliating Lennox).
