The match up between Paul Perris and Mike Columbo was the fan poll equivalent of a major league squash. In fact, I’d say Paul probably managed to execute a front face lock and worked in the splits, but otherwise Mike thrashed the fuck out of him pretty much from start to finish. I’m calling it a totally dominating victory for Mike with smothering face-to-crotch headscissors making Paul pass out from the pain and lack of oxygen.
Can Columbo keep it going in day 2 of competition? I believe his next challenger, Sebastien, was a contemporary of Mike’s, but as far as I know they never literally faced one another (in fact, I don’t think either of them competed outside of their respective promotions). I can’t find stats on Sebastien, but I most definitely got off on watching him wrestle often, so from memory I’m sure he was at least 4 inches taller than Mike.
On the left, defending champ, BG East muscle man Mike Columbo (5’7″, 175 pounds) vs. on the right, Thunder’s Arena heart throb Sebastien (at least 5’11”, ??? pounds).

Oh, I get it. I know you said Elimination, but I was thinking Round Robin. I think Mike might be unbeatable outside of another BGEast guy.
I see him using a lot of bearhugs to wear Sebastian down, the first locked on while dude is posing (like all Thunders guys love to do). He’ll use his boots to break him down some more then a camel clutch finisher where Mike flexes one bicep then brings his arm down around the neck for a sleeper. Sebastien taps, but Mike knocks him out anyway.
Sebastien was always one of my all time favorites from Thunders Arena! So fucking handsome and his hot body looked amazing in his skimpy trunks. It’s a shame he didn’t win this one, but thanks for including him in the first place!
