Wrestling in unusual contexts

Recommended Posts

Tonight during a Carl Craig set. He mixed Also Sprach Zarathustra in the middle of old-school Detroit techno. So yeah, I couldn't help it. I woooed.

Maybe it's been mentionned before, in Tim Burton's Beetlejuice, when Geena Davis & Alec Baldwin try to scare off Catherine O'Hara dressed off as ghosts (well they are, actually), she's alseep and there's some pro-wrestling on the TV, which she switches off without looking as the ghosts. I couldn't recognize the faces and I think I heard spanish, so it may have been lucha libre (and hey, it's Tim Burton, he's an weirdo so he would know about lucha libre in the 80's, right ?). Not positive about it though.

Wouldn't an extensive "random pro-wrestling appearance in movies/TV series" thread would be fun ? (yeah, it's kinda this one already, I know)

Okay, reading about him now and Pat Roach actually had an amazing film career. Aside from the Indiana Jones series he also worked for Stanley Kubrick and George Lucas and was a part of several other legendary series (Bond, Titans, Conan, Robin Hood). He did alright.

Wrestling in movies:

Pay It Forward

 

Haley Joel Osment watches a WCW Monday Nitro match. I believe there are also WCW and WWF action figures and/or posters elsewhere in the movie.

Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi

"The Undertaker" (Brian Lee) and Crush randomly appear in this Indian Bollywood movie.

Credit goes to MoS:

 

Massively popular and well-known, "Undertaker" even appeared in a Bollywood movie where he was a pro wrestler and an evil henchman. Brian Lee played him, and he had a wrestling "match" with Crush, who was uncredited. (Wrestling trivia - Undertaker won the match by killing Crush and putting him in the casket)

There is a song called 'me and Stephen hawking' by manic Street Preachers a band I am quite fond of as you may be able to tell by my username.

 

In this song it has the line " 100,000 watched giant haystacks in a Bombay fight"

Not sure if it's been posted yet, but this is one of my favorites bad Ramones song (they had a lot of stinkers in the 80s/90s), mainly because it's all about wrestling.

I was watching Ernest Goes to School (the Ernest films are guilty pleasures of mine) on the Roku Channel, and Ernest points out he had seen every Wrestlemania since Warrior beat Hogan (the film came out in 1995, so that would mean 6-11). Kind of odd for a film to make such a specific reference, and an Ernest film at that.

So, one of the characters in this French role-play Youtube series is : John Cena (just watch the opening)

 

 

He's probably gonna die a horrible death too.

 

(if anything, it speaks about how Cena still is the most recognizable modern pro-wrestling figure today)

I was watching a cologne recommendation video by Cubaknow (as I collect them) when he described number one as " a diamond, its glorious, it makes me want to wear rings on each finger... it's the motherfucking Ric Flair of perfume woooo"

I turned the TV on the other day and there was an, I think, Bad News Bears movie on when they were in Japan, and there was a wrestling match with Inoki.

Then another time I saw one of those be a great dad commercials with Alberto Del Rio of all people. And this was like a couple of weeks ago.

Weirdo arthouse director Guy Maddin made a short film called Sombra dolorosa which features a woman wrestling death to save her daughter from suicide after the patriarch of the family died. It's kind of like the arthouse version of Nacho Libre or something. Guy Maddin is hard to describe. It's only four minutes and if you like weird/surreal cinema, check it out. I'm a big fan.

The Airport Ghetto Street Fight between star rappers Booba & Kaaris (and their crew). (Orly Airport - Paris - France - 08.01.2018)

Booba clearly was the biggest heel here, but there was really no babyface. They worked stiff but it was a little sloppy at times. 

At 0:44, gotta love the bump on the chairs from a single leg-kick, that was classic.

The Duty Free brawl part was the highlight, with a great Horsemen style beatdown at 1:20. You can see the blood on the floor too, so you got some nice juice going on from the playaz.

Guy filming the shit at 1:32 talking slang, which I sadly can't translate accurately, but he's your typical white boy using arab/african "street" verbatim (wesh and all), so it's funny because it's so lame. Later on though, Booba and the crew were all "Bunch of faggots !" and also "Your grand-mother (???) you son of a bitch." Cheap heat, that...

No contest. Next time in the prison yard I guess. Dumbfucks.
