Anyone remember No Holds Barred? Didn't WWF bring in Zeus from the movie to feud with Hogan in the WWF? I wonder if they would do that now and bring in that Memnon guy in the movie or Ralf Mueller(Gladiator, Conan the series) who are both in Scorpion King to feud with the Rock.

Actually remember WCW's movie, Ready to Rumble? David Arquette came in and won the world title and even main evented a ppv. So this would technically be nothing new to wrestling, but it would still bite the big one.

Considering how bad "No Holds Barred: The Match" and "David Arquette: World Champion" went over, I'd say at the most we'd see anyone from Scorpion King not named The Rock would be as one of those backstage vignettes that we saw when Highlander: Endgame and Rollerball came out.

Yeah, ever since No Holds Barred: The Match, vince realized that actually having actors who were in a movie with a wrestler involved in actually like wrestling and stuff is a damned stunned arsed idea.

And bringing up No Holds Barred is something that no one should ever do, it's just plain wrong.

Hmm...

Zeus/"No Holds Barred" crossover => a badly-worked, forgettable angle.

David Arquette/"Ready To Rumble" crossover => one of the greatest abominations ever, Arquette's run as WCW Heavyweight Champion.

I'll take a pass on any "Scorpion King" crossover, thank you.

I've sorta developed a rule that ANY "Wreslting/Movie" crossover or cross-pollination will suck the meat missile.

Altho Zeus is a great item to point to (How can you not wonder what Vince was smoking when he tried to build Zeus up as a threatening opponent when all he could do is slap his mantit and yell "HO-GAN!") I also offer Chucky and Robocop into evidence as to why movies and pro wrestling DON'T mix.

I'm even against those little "Rollerball-isms" they do on Smackdown, if only because

1) Every movie they push sucks

2) The only decent endurable bit of television they gave us was Arnold massacring the word "Jabroni."

What are you talking about?

Was I the only one who saw the TRUE BRILLIANCE portrayed by LL Cool J when he licked his hand?

That one single promo destroyed any love I had for Jericho at that point.
Shortly after he became every face's lame tag partner and I referred to him as 'bitch du jour' (bitch of the day).
Don't ask me why though.

There is no reason to bring in anyone from the SK except for a cheap joke somewhere, some backstage skit.
I know the big guy from the green mile (i always forget his name) was already in the crowd once or twice..I think that is enough..
Unless Hogan and the Rock meet after the movie becomes a hit (if..) and Hogan goes like 'I remember when I was a movie star' and we see him think back of that nanny movie of his.
