Storyline

Rip is 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 goes back to his normal life. Still looking for a way to raise ratings, Brell initiates a show called "The Battle of the Tough Guys", a violent brawling competition. A mysterious man, Zeus, wins the competition. This gets Brell to use him as an angle to get at Rip. Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

Bottom line it, HUlk Hogan is the next Eastwood, well with a little less hair, they are the same age aren't they?

Never saw a better non actor do a better job since last night when I was watching an " early" Traci Lords movie, God Bless her.

Any real American, or Hulkamanic, this is a must own video, sorry to say for some reason many places, well all ( I was just trying to be nice) do not sell this monumental film.

So I suggest that you go to your local video store and just slip it under your coat, make sure you dust it off first, I am very sure they won't notice. Good Luck and remember to train, say your prayers and drink beer
