Brittany (Major Beats) Lewis gets squashed.

Fri Jun 11, 2021 9:15 am by Lotuswarrior

Its been a long time and I thought I'd see how things are going. So I figured I'd help someone out with putting someone over. Looking for a heavyweight or some heel to show off what they can do to another person. Got a big match coming up and want to highlight certain traits/skills with your wrestler then I'd help you with those.

I don't expect the match to be long, but not a complete squash match. Kinda want Brittany to piss off her opponent by dancing around the ring and avoiding being hit, …

In need of a debut match for two heavyweights.

Tue Jun 01, 2021 10:17 pm by LunarOcean

So I've officiallly returned. I'm currently limiting my wrestling activities to two heavyweight wrestlers, Ionel and Amandine. Iodel is the priority right now and I'm looking for a match with her and any heavyweights out there. It will definitely be a hentai one with knock out and verbal submission as alternate win conditions. It will involve a lot of body to body friction and pressing and I prefer it if both parties are okay with that kind of thing. Bikinis are preferred but one pieces too if …

Akiko was expecting Liv to start screaming from pain, angry bickering, sudden tears, a plead for mercy, or even just a plain old "ouch". But she sure as hell wasn't expecting that crazed girl to start laughing her ass off after getting enough air in her lungs to regain the ability to do so. The redhead girl wasn't the typical bully that acted high and mighty against a pushover, nor was she a trigger happy loon that would surely never let her foe get any kind of dominancy during the match, she was... something else. This attitude weirded out the petite brunette, she didn't know how to react to this mentally unstable foe. "Ugh, I can't even tell anymore if you are a kinky perv, or just plain batshit crazy..." She let out her thoughts in frustration. How else was she supposed to react?

Anyways, this wasn't a street fight, she needed to win this match, no matter how ineffective her methods proved to be here. Akiko went towards the cackling Livewire, and then she would give her some  kicks to the sides, hoping to make her flip over, or stop laughing, both options worked for her. "Yeah yeah, hilarious. Now please, shut up" She said, almost genuinely asking for it. If her kicks proved to be unsuccessful, the short schoolgirl would then start to get pissed all over again.

"God! has anyone ever told you how much of a damn thorn in the side you are?" Akiko bitched at the redhead, looking for ways to hurt her some. "At least have the courtesy of cutting it out, and start acting like a NORMAL FUCKING PERSON!!!" She finally exploded, running towards the corner in a fit of rage, climbing it up all the way, and then jumping off, elbow sticking out, aimed to Liv's face, not even bothering to actually check if the snipper was still there at all.

Post by Yori Sun May 02, 2021 8:14 am

It wasn't her fault she found this so funny, Akiko was just a little firecracker and she loved it. A hateful wrecking ball wrapped up in a tiny package, Liv kept imagining the petite young girl as a yappy chiwawa in a brown wig. Active imagination aside, she should have been doing more to stop the other girl from beating on her so much but the fact they just kept getting more pissed off, even while they were in theory winning, was amusing as well. Was she always this irritable? Probably. People with fuses this short were always on the verge of blowing up.

"Kuh!" Her prone body was pounded with kick after kick, rolling her up and onto her side where she wrapped her arms around herself, clutching her sore midsection tightly. Oh boy that was smarts! The redhead let out a soft hiss, kicking her feet on the mat at the throbbing pain encompassing her side. She had stopped laughing at least, for now. With a strained grunt she gave a small cough, muttering. "Shit. You're real damn feisty."

"Yeah… a lot of people actually tell me that." She spoke through a groan, laboring to get the words out while she writhed. Liv craned her head, cheek smooshed to the canvas as she peered up at Akiko from the mat, lips parting to allow a grin to creek across her face. "Normal? I'm wrestling a midget with a bikini top on, normal is off the table."

When Akiko suddenly took off out of her sight, Liv flopped inver onto her belly, turning to see where she had gone. Off to the ropes… up the turnbuckle. The redhead blinked with sudden understanding as her petite competitor nimbly headed up the corner. Tucking her legs she got to her knees, pressing her palms to the mat. The intention was to play possum until the last moment, but when the brunette threw herself from the turnbuckles without even looking, the plan changed. With a hard lean Liv gracelessly flopped to the side in a roll, making distance to avoid the aerial assault. She was mindful to keep her eyes on Akiko though, wanting desperately to see her splat on the mat.

When someone like Akiko, who tends to beat her troubles away finds someone as difficult as Liv, things tend to get very gruesome very fast. She could have gone for a pin attempt now that her foe was down for the count, but no, if the redheaded vandal remained having her shits and giggles at her expense, then the sadistic teen would not be able to call this a victory. So, against her better judgement, she decided that further torment was in order.

It also didn't helped that Liv kept running her mouth amidst the kicks that she delivered to her curvaceous body, and even after she was left there to see how Akiko climbed the top ropes to come back at her and hopefully smash her in a way that would hurt badly. It all appeared to go accordingly to the enraged brunette, that was until last second, when she was able to see her rival roll away from danger. Indeed, it was at this moment that Akiko realized, she fucked up.

"MOTHERFFF-" And a loud reverberating sound where the sounds that Akiko made when her thin body met the ground. She was left at the same spot Liv used to be, limbs spread as she tried to lift her head as the sharp pain of the fall made itself present all over her. She moaned in pain, trying to discern what was left from right and get control over her sore legs that reminded her once again that she just pulled such a stupid move that her lil' brother would be proud of her.

The stare of the redheaded girl was the thing that Akiko's eyes were able to discern after her dizzy eyes finally reconnected to her brain. Those cocky amber eyes fixated on the result of her face-landing, and how they barely hid Livewire's desire to start laughing all over her screw up. "Don't you fucking dare..."

Liv was already grinning ear to ear as if she was the cheshire cat when Akiko caught her eye, it seemed as though it was almost imminent that she was about to laugh. Instead her eyes widened, lips pursing with a look of innocence of a child who had just been caught stealing from the cookie jar before dinner. ...was that a soft muffled giggle? She vigorously shook her head no as if the question had been asked out loud by someone other than her own mind. "I would neeeeever." She responded to her opponent with a devilish glint in her wild eyed stare… wink!

The redhead slapped the mat with her palm, giving a hard enough shove to throw her upper body backwards with a snap of motion, whipping her long length of hair back through the air looking almost like a trail of fire as her ponytail fluttered behind. Her buxom breasts gave a bounce with the movement, settling back to their normal state of perfection as she sat back on her calves, looking back to Akiko. Despite the punishment she had endured this far, she didn't seem to be slowing down terribly much save for the obvious signs of fatigue in her heaving chest with each breath. If she was in pain, which she surely should have been, it wasn't showing through very well.

"You're a naughty little thing... You know that? I think you do." Liv kicked a boot up, clapping it to the canvas. She leaned in, arms folded to out her weight on that leg as she pushed herself back up with the smallest of winces. Perhaps she was human after all. With a visible skip in her step she moved towards where Akiko was on the mat, appearing as though she was about to try and gather the girl up and drag her to her feet… then she paused half lean as if spotting a fly in the corner of her eye… bzzzzzbzzzzzbzzz… her foot was raised, the movement quick and spastic she she brought it right back down unexpectedly towards Akiko's hand, trying to slam her boot heel down on all those delicate little digits and the fragile bones that made them up. If she hit her mark, the redhead would grind her heel in from side to side.

"Oops." Liv muttered in a low monotone, a look of cold indifference washing over her otherwise animated features. Both women knew it had been no mistake, by the look alone it was pretty clear this was her own form of direct compensation for the other girl's little offensive streak. The redhead shuffled two steps back, seemingly retreating before making a sudden change again with a quick hop forward. She bent and the knees, building up enough potential energy to fire her legs straight again, commiting to a standing front flip. There was no way she would make it back to her feet though at the angle she was at, no, instead she extended her legs out in the wild somersault, trying to bring her legs crashing down along Akiko's head and chest with a flipping leg drop.

What could be worse than having the upper hand against your prone enemy, deciding to play cocky and attempt a high-flyer move, royally screw it up, end up eating the mat instead and feel like a horse just galloped all over you? Akiko was really debating about it herself, and having to look at Liv's mug as she really tried to bounce back, she could hardly say that the landing stung worse than that glorious shit-eating grin."Uuuuughhhhh..." As she feebledly tried to sit up, the petite girl observed how her foe stopped playing possum and finally began to walk towards her direction.

Akiko couldn't deny that Livewire was by all means, an incredibly beautiful woman. crimson hair that fell to her thighs level. Very curvaceous body that she was not shy to put it in display in that skimpy sniper gear of hers. Even those amber eyes of hers were mesmerizingly alluring. If this encounter had happened in different conditions, the petite teen would have thought highly of her opponent, with her mature looks and indomitable spunk. But here? The only feelings that the explosive woman managed to inspire in Akiko where those of impotence, dread and built up rage as she saw how she got close to her with violent intentions.

"Takes one to know one, bitch" Unable to do much to protect herself, and with a necessity to antagonize her foe, Akiko replied to Liv's words with some verbal poison of her own. Puzzled by the redhead's weird antics before a shot of pain hit her stomped hand, making her groan in pain and then harshly complain. "Owwwghhh! YOU ASSHOLE!!!" It spoke of Akiko's temper, the fact that her hurt complains had less intensity behind them than her expressions of hatred.

Not content with flattening the short girl's frail-looking hand, the anarchist snipper made sure to let her victim know that she was done laughing, and now she was ready to pay Akiko for all the damage she put her through, plus taxes. Even if the twin girl was not easy to scare, she had to admit that Liv's uncaring eyes were intimidating, presented by the audible gulping sound her throat did. It got even worse after she witnessed how her chaotic foe flipped, bringing down her foot in a rather spectacular fashion, smashing Akiko square in the face and perky breasts, rocking her head back and painfully driving her ribs against her internal organs.

This time, there was no sort of exclamation, neither another show of disdain, only the sound of that hard strike, ending with Liv's lovely leg lying on top of Akiko's lithe and prone body, calf squishing her modest chest and sole pressing against her face that looked looking straight to the void...

For a minute there, it looked like Akiko was out cold, but soon enough, she used her own slender yet strong legs to hug Liv's offending limb while holding her foot with both hands. "Gotcha bitch!" She said maliciously  before attempting to roll with Liv's leg to begin an Ankle lock. At least, this is what it looked like, but in reality, the pint sized striker was desperate to get away from the redhead to catch a short breather. She put her bet on the sudden threat would make Livewire's fight or flight response give her enough of an opening to make her escape. If it did, she would run to the ropes, she really needed somewhere to rest for five seconds.

"Got me what? Chocolates I hope!" If there was any fear to be had here, it certainly didn't appear to be coming from Liv. With her leg wrapped up and boot clutched firm, there was real to be weary of what came next. With the redhead though, it didn't seem to matter. Instead of fighting it, she rolled over onto her chest with the motion of her petite opponent, giving her exactly what she wanted. The sudden twerk of her ankle got a sharp inhale through her teeth almost like a hiss. Placing her palms on the mat, Liv pushed her upper half off the canvas, grinning back over her shoulder as her sights honed in on her target. The other untampered leg drifted up off the mat, hovering in a small circular motion as Liv closed one eye, her lip poking out of the corner of her lips as she lined up her shot.

Fight or flight had been the intended objective, however the only flying Liv liked to do was always in the direction of her opposition. With a hard thrust her free leg snapped out like a shotgun blast, attempting to catch Akiko in the stomach at the odd wheelbarrow angle she was at. The thought the brunette might want to flee never crossed her mind, perhaps that was in some small way of compliment. Why would her opponent back down now after talking so much trash and being able to take so much punishment? If she managed to break herself free with the kick, the redhead would pivot hard on all fours, scrambling after Akiko with a giddy glee as she would try to pounce on the other girl depriving her of any chance to rest. "Boo!"

In the fraction of a second, Akiko tried to fool Liv into giving her a small opening to escape. And in the fraction of a second she realized that something was off by the way it all played out, next thing she noticed was that her plan would not be carried to fruition. The crimson vandal would simply no sell her little bluff and instead shoot a bizarre, yet effective, kick to her gut before the emerald-eyed teen could do anything about it. "Blrghh!" Biting the insides of her mouth to drown her pain screeches, the petite woman rolled away thanks to the kinetic force of the belly-kick.

Just in case that there was any doubt that Akiko's plans were falling apart, and that she was at a total disadvantage against her sly opponent. Liv decided to drive this point even further by jumping on her, squashing the brunette's lithe body with her own curvaceous figure. "Aughhh fuuuuck!!!" Far from finding this pleasant, the chocolate-haired girl wasn't able to swallow her cries of pain this time. The frustrated girl would look at her foe in the eyes, giving her a clear look of deep contempt. Golden ambers meeting emerald rocks, ample chest pressed against modest  bosoms.

"You have no idea how much I hate you right now" The Japanese gal replied to the small "Boo!" with a very honest critic (if that could even be considered a critic). Akiko would've been willing to bet that Liv was about to introduce her to a world of hurt, so she might as well tried to give the redhead a harsh knee strike to the groin, taking advantage of their close distance.

It was like lining up the perfect shot, bullet in the chamber and… Bam! Her leg snapped out and caught Akiko square in the abdomen. She felt the heel of her boot sink deep, a bit more than she had anticipated. that brief look of wide eyed shock as her opponent's bright emerald eyes bulged almost to the point of popping. Boy would that have been metal as hell if they had! In that moment there was realization and pain before the force carried into her petite body and shot the two of them apart in spectacular fashion. Liv flopped to the mat on her chest and Akiko was sent tumbling almost comedically. Climbing up onto all fours, the redhead pivoted to go on the prowl, chasing down the brunette like a mad dog to pounce at her fallen form.

Throwing her weight down onto Akiko she surged her chest forward, shoving the small girl down with her buxom bosom, pinning her under her mushroomed breasts with a hard grind. Grinning down at her fallen for, the smaller girl's spite filled comment made her chuckle and give a small shake of her head. "It's okay, just use your words and explain it… maybe with a nice well thought out PowerPoint or a TED talk…ugh!" The redhead's body buckled as a stiff knee shot up between her legs, clubbing her square in the crotch. While not the most effective move there was, it certainly hadn't been a pleasant sensation especially being taken by surprise. Liv stared down at Akiko with a small twitch in her eye, leaning herself back… then threw her face forward, slamming her forehead down straight at the brunette's face, looking to smash her dead on with a massive headbutt.

Words weren't Akiko's forte; regularly she wasn't one for small talk with anyone besides her twin brother, and when she was mad her vocabulary would regress into violent and unintelligible babbling. So how could one as herself express her hateful words to the recipient of her spite? Definitely not by doing a formal presentation or careful presentation as Liv annoyingly suggested. Usually, a knee to the crotch was more than enough to express to someone just how much you hate them.

To see Liv's cocky smile disappear momentarily to show a grimace of pain, and soon after a micro expression of annoyance felt pretty damn therapeutic for Akiko. She cracked the most glorious smug grin she ever had the honour to show. It was almost worth the revenge that the vermillion hunter was about to repay with blood. "How's that for a ba- AUGHHH!!" Indeed, before she was even able to rub it in, a fiery-haired headbutt ended it prematurely, like a comet falling down to strike Akiko's pretty face. Just like her foe's hair, the brunette's muzzle, black bra and her attacker's face were all sprinkled with blood that started to flow from her nose.

And just as some of that crimson juice made it to Akiko's lips, entering her palate, her eyes started to see red as well. She wasn't even able to distinguish what color Liv's hair was now, but she was able to distinguish that she just managed to royally piss her off. "GET THE FUCK OFF ME BITCH!!!" She screamed, or rather roared. Desperately attempting to kick Liv off her, going for a series of punches directed to the gut of the girl, all in the hopes of pushing her away. One thing was for certain though, she was done with the teasing and the running. Play time was over, and now it was a do-or-die match.

The amount of times headbanging in a mosh pit has devolved into the need to crack heads was far beyond counting… or maybe she had headbutt people so frequently that concussions had made her lose count. But the bra wearing bombshell was far from polite when it came to the rules of engagement so when slighted with a knee to her nethers she fired back in mind with a less than above board move of her own with little regard for her own well being. This particular meeting of the minds in the most literal of senses worked more in her favor, as a sudden warm spray scripted from her opponent's face, speckling her in crimson. While it went hardly unnoticed on her too, the visceral red specs had scattered along her cleavage and lower jaw almost as if someone had given her a sprite with a spray can of crimson hue.

She didn't seem to mind the scent of iron pervading her nostrils or the warm wet blood on her features, after all she already wore the color to perfection, some might consider it fashionable even. Her tongue slipped out from her mouth, running along the edges of her lips to lap up traces of the spray, giving it a light sampling. She smacked her lips and furrowed her brow before snickering. "Bitter yet savory, with... I believe, notes of jealousy. Not a good year… also, you might want to go see a doctor, I think your platelet count is low." The redhead threw herself upright still straddling the smaller girl at the waist with a laugh. The anger the her opponent's eyes was so good, she couldn't help but be amused when she screamed up at her and started flailing.

Liv brought her hands up defensively, snapping her open palms down to intercept Akiko's punches from below and frustratingly swatted them off target. A massive shit eating smirk grew on her face with each successive time she batted one away, looking almost like a cat playing with a mouse. The difference here was the mouse had some hard knuckles and even though she was managing to counter the smaller girl's offense, it was starting to take a toll on her hands. When she spotted an opening between punches though, she threw her weight to the side with a tactical roll, leaving the brunette behind to open up the distance between them and get to one knee. "Anyone ever told you that you have anger problems?"
