NO HOLDS BARRED
Search By Tags
Conventional wisdom has it that the movie No Holds Barred was the first of many bad Hulk Hogan vehicles, a low budget film that flopped. Is this true or was there more to the film than people have attributed? Join me as I look at the film and its effect on professional wrestling.
Merriam Webster defines conventional wisdom as “the generally accepted belief, opinion, judgment, or prediction about a particular matter”. However anyone who has studied a particular field knows that conventional wisdom is sometimes (some would say often) based on an unexamined opinion.
Not much is known about the story behind No Holds Barred. You won’t find a 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray with a documentary on the making of the film.
