The movie "Bodyslam" starring Roddy Piper is on MoviePlex now (started at 7, goes for 1 hr, 35 minutes), and will be on again at 1:20 a.m. I guess I'll set my tape to record tonight...

I've seen "No Holds Barred", and I liked it in a "watching a train wreck" kind of way. Anyone seen this one that can recommend it?

Yes, I've seen it. No, I can't recommend it. Any wrestling movie featuring Charles Nelson Reilly should be avoided at all costs.

But that's just my two cents (Canadian).

It's a fun little movie. It's very,very lightweight and has good a heart. I wouldn't go out my way to see it but if happen to be channel surfing and there's nothing better on it's not a bad time waster. Billy Barty is hilarious and Piper doesn't embarrass himself. there's some fun cameos by other wrestlers too.

Speaking of movies about wrestling, anyone have any thoughts on Grunt?

Grunt seemed really cool when I was 11 and would watch anything associated with wrestling. I have no desire to watch it now and find out how well it aged.

Still, Bodyslam isn't the worst wrestling movie from around that timeframe.
There was one called 'Tag Team', which I can't even find on imdb or movie tome (there's a different Tag Team on there, the TV pilot that starred Jesse Ventura and Roddy Piper, but that was like eight-ten years later)...
I remember that Sgt. Slaughter was the main wrestler in this one (he was at ringside for the final match and ran interference for the good guys), and that there were a bunch of AWA guys including Road Warriors and Baron Von Raschke making cameos -- but other than that, I can't remember a damn thing about the movie. I just remember how awful it was.
Anyone else have any memories of this movie or links to a site about it?

Well, I watched "Body Slam" this afternoon. One of those "funny when it's not supposed to be" flicks. Nice of Flair, Blassie and Sammartino to make cameos at the end. I recognized The Barbarian as one of Piper/Tonga's opponents, but I didn't recognize the other guy. A quick IMDB search revealed that "Bodyslam" was the only movie he was in. Must've been a "generic muscle freak."

Never saw it and always meant to. At least now I know to check my brain and let it ride when it comes on.

That was one bad movie. The only way I would watch that again is if they somehow got a clip of the Dudleys 3D-ing Charles Nelson Reilly. Or Lesner spinning him around in an F5 and watching his glasses and ascot fly off into the fifth row. Now that's entertainment. BTW, the guy who played the Barbarian's tag-team partner was Tijoe Khan (sp?), who was in WCW for about 17 minutes back in the 90's. He's probably replacing Brutus at the train turnstile just about now....

I actually like that movie for its cheesiness. I always loved the sound effects in it. The punching and slamming sounded like something out of a Rocky movie. Not to mention the sound they made coming off the ropes. BTW, you can see Teijo Khan and the Barbarian in the 1987 NWA Crockett Cup tournament (albeit on different teams) if you have a copy... which I do.

WHOAH WHOAH WHOAH! Please tell me you have forgotten his appearance in The X Files playing "Jose Chung" in episode: "Josť Chung's 'From Outer Space'" (episode # 3.20) 12 April 1996!

Because it is the bomb (as the kids say these days)!

And to firm up the wrestling connection, I believe Jesse "The Body" Ventura was in that episode as well, as one of the Men In Black (partnered with Alex Trebek). Or was that a different one?

And wasn't there a sequel of sorts to Jose Chung later on, that saw the poor guy get killed?

As there is no Match or Game involved in the title, it gets my approval. (Buddy Jesus pose)

While I'm not going to say that those not " in the know," (marks, if you will) think that this is all real and don't know that it's scripted, I also don't think that they have the "insider information" that we are being given.
