Last episode, we narrowly escaped a hammerhead upside our fishbrain noggins. This week, we brave that danger once again to cover an early version of the No Holds Barred screenplay – a version written by Bronco Billy’s own Dennis Hackin. And just like the theatrical version, these early scenes are a pulse-pounding thrill ride. In fact, this week, we witness not one but two corporate strategy meetings (the third and fourth of the screenplay so far), a discussion of French antiques, the art of salary negotiation, and perhaps the most iconic scene of No Holds Barred. And as always, in comparing this Dennis Hackin draft of the screenplay to the rewrite penned by Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon, we search for clues into the authorial method, the madness, or perhaps the overwhelming emptiness at the core of these two titans of sports entertainment.
