This week on the podcast we witnessed The Battle Of The Tough Guys in 1989’s ‘No Holds Barred.’ Not only was this Hulk Hogan’s first film as the lead, it was also the first film ever put out by the WWE themselves and you could tell. Apparently re-written by Hogan and Vince McMahon, this movie is one insane scene to another. Hulk Hogan plays Rip ,the World Wrestling Federation champion, who is faithful to his fans and the network he wrestles for. Brell, the new head of the World Television Network, wants Rip to wrestle for his network. Rip refuses and this drives Brell crazy. Still looking for a way to raise ratings, Brell initiates a show called “The Battle of the Tough Guys”, a violent brawling competition where a mysterious man, Zeus, wins the competition. From here its an all out war between Brell & Zeus vs Rip!
Next week on B Movie Breakdown we are watching the Emilio Estavez / Mick Jagger classic FREEJACK! Yes, that’s right Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones once starred in a sci-fi movie along side the Might Duck man himself. Bounty hunters from the future transport a doomed race-car driver to 2009 New York, where his mind will be replaced with that of a dead billionaire.
Remember every movie we watch is available for streaming on Netflix or YouTube! [Unless we say otherwise]
