I find it hard to believe that Rob Schneider is only on here for two movies. I mean, I saw him do standup and he was pretty funny, plus I enjoy a few of his movies for what they are, but still a surprise.

Oh man, and I just discovered you can add Jessie Ventura to the list. He was a prison guard in Batman & Robin and one of the prisoners in Demolition Man.

Edit: And if they end up doing No Holds Barred he's in that too.

Hey, does Statham jump up a level? Sure, it was just a cameo, but he was in Fast 6, and he will certainly be in 7!

Is Jeffrey Jones missing from the list? He was in Devil's Advocate and Howard the Duck! Speaking of Howard the Duck, Ed Gale (Howard himself!) is a two-timer, because he was also in Tiptoes.

Here's one that may have gone under the radar: Grand L. Bush. He was in "Demolition Man", but more notably, he was Balrog in "(What's a) Street Fighter"!

Over the Top will also add Terry Funk for Road House & Over The Top (and if you're a fan of the movie The Wrestler, the documentary Beyond The Mat is worth watching and has a lot of plot elements for The Wrestler)

"Beyond the Mat" is one of those ones that's interesting to revisit every so often, seeing as a lot of things have changed in the wrestling landscape since then, whether it's deaths or other instances of reality butting in making you look at things in a different light. Recently, FYE had a big sale on WWE sets, including a ton of pre-death of Benoit/Guerrero documentaries, and they're so sad to watch with knowing what happened in the next few years. If you have Netflix, I also suggest "The Backyard" and "Card Subject to Change".

I watched CSTC a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it, especially the story of Trent Acid . It's funny though 'cause I haven't watched wrestling in probably 20 years and I enjoy documentaries about it now. There's something that's fascinating about the real side of something so fake.

I'm going out on a limb to bet you've seen Bigger, Stronger, Faster*. That's another great documentary tangentially related to wrestling.

I have not, but for a while there Netflix kept suggesting it to me! I'll have to check it out. There's a podcast I listen to with a couple of Jersey-based indy guys that talked up CSTC for a long time before it actually came out, so it was really cool to finally get to see it when it finally hit Netflix last year. I also highly suggest "Heroes of World Class" if you haven't seen it. Combined with the WWE produced "Triumph and Tragedy of World Class", it's one of the most depressing looks of the business that you'll ever see.

Cage won't stand for this. I have a feeling he's about to rip off an epic run of terrible movies in order to take back his rightful seat on the HDTGM throne.

"Left Behind" IS on the horizon. A re-boot of the classic Kirk Cameron franchise? It WILL be done. Oh, it has to be.

I'm with you. I haven't really paid attention to wrestling since the late 90s when Rocky Mavia was with the Nation of Domination. But it is really cool to me how they improv a whole fight, right there, live in front of an audience. And how if the fight is not that entertaining, there are ways for the people outside the ring to signal the wrestlers to tell them to wrap it up.

I also like the history of wrestling. Apparently a good portion of the moves they have were originally used in traveling carnivals. The sideshows would have a "strongest man in the world" exhibit and he would challenge any of the locals to a wrestling match. To make sure the carnival guy had a leg up in winning, they used alot of the wrestling holds we see today to put fools down. So, I guess a Boston crab can do damage if you really apply pressure.

While I haven't seen Beyond The Mat yet, it's been near the top of my "to-watch" queue since being discussed on Jonah Raydio. Particularly:

Duuude, it's such a good watch if you were ever into wrestling during its respective heydays in the 80s and 90s. Seeing how far Jake "The Snake" has fallen and how amazing and real Mick Foley is, it's incredible. There's a scene where Mick Foley/Mankind is getting the shit beat out of him with a chair and his family is backstage watching in sheer terror; I think I might have cried.

It's crazy how many fans, for so long, didn't think of pro wrestlers as actual humans with lives but like actual larger than life superheroes -- which they also sort of are.
