Every wrestling federation needs a Face — one good-looking but unlucky hero who is forever being tricked, trapped, beaten, and broken. We can count on him to endure hot punishment every time he gets in the ring.
I think UCW has found their Face in Zack Reno. Check out this recent posting (#691) featuring our beloved Zack against the larger and stronger Gabe Steel.
Gabe dominates Zack for most of the match, as one does against the top Face of a wrestling organization. If you get off on ball-busting, this match is a Must See (as I suppose every UCW match is…)
Zack sells wonderfully, always remembering to put his ripped little physique and large package on display in that sexy bulging bikini.
I’ve seen plenty of Zack Reno matches from various Underground federations in recent years and they’re all good, but my Man Crush on Zack officially began during a rare UCW Tag Team bout which I wrote about back in October. Maybe it was the old-school mutton-chop look he adopted at that time, or maybe it’s just UCW’s rough, raunchy style, but let’s just say that UCW might as well automatically charge my credit card whenever they post a Zack Reno match and send me the link.
“Always been a fan of Zack, but he’s putting in his best work and seeming to have the most fun in UCW. He’s really embracing the all-out, no rules nature and seems to be having a great time.” (Agreed.)
Probably my favorite move that bad boy Gabe Steel unleashes on Zack is this OTK Backbreaker combined with plenty of UCW-style package handling. I call it the Over-The-Knee Ballbreaker and he uses it a couple of times on poor Zack, to great effect.
Gabe needs to patent that killer move and utilize it like six times per match!
(I almost titled this article: “The Only Rule Is: You Will Suffer” — but I decided to focus on Zack’s remarkable ascension to becoming the Top Face in UCW instead.)
Then Gabe bends Zack backwards over the ropes and the camera gets in there for some visually stunning close-ups, and this is where I lose it. My goodness — great posing, great suffering great camera work, I really didn’t stand a chance of getting past this scene. So I’m not sure how this match ends, but once I catch my breath and maybe take a nap, I can watch the remainder.
