Spartacus vs Titus Pullo

Rome’s greatest soldier vs Rome’s greatest threat. Spartacus (from Starz’s hit show Spartacus) matches up against Titus Pullo (from the hit HBO show Rome). Even though I think Spartacus would win in the end, this wouldn’t be an easy fight. Pullo was the character that killed everything in his path. He fought for Rome, but if he wanted to he could’ve been a threat as big as Spartacus was.

This fight would come down to Spartacus’s speed and versatility giving him the edge in this Matchup. He cannot keep Pullo in front of him. Pullo is a Roman Legionary. He is used to large amounts of enemies coming straight at him. Spartacus can’t take him head on.

The problem is Pullo would know that going into the fight. Pullo has fought against armies, assassins and warriors of all types. So one man, even one as skilled as Spartacus, wouldn’t make Pullo hesitate in the slightest. The more and more I think about it, the more I can’t pick a winner to this battle. I started off thinking Spartacus could win this fight, but now I’m having a split decision. Let me know what you think.

Not Toned

This is going to sound really weird, but it’s something that I don’t understand. I don’t understand why wrestlers/actors, who primarily aren’t wearing a shirt don’t look good. In a world where we have trainers and nutritionists and gyms popping up everywhere, why don’t these guys at least tone up?

Has the Miz ever heard of a sit-up?  I just don’t understand how if you don’t look good without your shirt on, then why have it off. A lot of these wrestlers today look like lazy slobs. Their guts are hanging out over their belts. It doesn’t make any damn sense to me.

This is a picture of me without a shirt. If I was going to go on national television without a shirt then I’d hit the gym a lot more. At best I would just try and get more defined. That could be easily accomplished with a few squat thrust and some more bench presses.

Even on one of my favorite show Spartacus the actors don’t look really bulked up. Characters like this just confuse me. You’re an actor. A very rich actor, who has access to gyms and trainers. Why then wouldn’t you want to looked toned for the part. You’re playing a gladiator! At least try and look the part.
