How long would it take to cover a 93 minute movie about a sociopathic professional wrestler? We thought the answer was 17 episodes when we wrapped up our film coverage in our last show, but as it turns out, the story of No Holds Barred is more, much more than its perfected theatrical form. Particularly so when Hulk Hogan claims to have personally rewritten its screenplay in a small hotel room with Vince McMahon over what must have been a nightmarish 72 hours.
So this week we continue our No Holds Barred coverage by diving into an early draft of the screenplay - one submitted by acclaimed novelist and screenwriter Dennis Hackin. By comparing his version to the final film, we hope to gain insight into the authorial method and perhaps into the very souls of Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon. Or maybe we’ll just talk about some dumb shit that’s in the screenplay and not the movie, or vice-versa. You’ll have to tune in to find out.
We also discuss Rob Zombie, impotence, Steve Jobs, Jerome Bettis, Hulk Hogan church attendance, and Limp Bizkit. And most importantly, we make a long overdue apology to a former guest on the show. Don’t miss it.
