Image Entertainment is bringing '80s cult classic No Holds Barred (1989) to Blu-ray this spring. The film stars Hulk Hogan, Tommy "Tiny" Lister, Joan Severance, Kurt Fuller and Jeep Swanson, and makes its Blu-ray debut on April 1st.
Official Synopsis: When world wrestling champion Rip Thomas (wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan) refuses to join a competing network, an evil executive creates a new program, "The Battle of the Tough Guys," where rules don't exist and men engage in an all-out brawl for money. After a murdering ex-convict by the name of Zeus (Lister) comes out on top as the toughest man, an ultimate title match with Rip is the TV network's best chance for big ratings. But when Rip refuses the challenge and his brother is roughed-up as a consequence, the world champion has no choice but to teach Zeus a lesson in a final "No Holds Barred" fight to the finish.
No Holds Barred is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. Blu-ray exclusive special features include:
No Holds Barred Tag Team Steel Cage Match (12/27/1989) featuring Zeus and Randy Savage with Sensational Sherri vs. Hulk Hogan and Brutus Beefcake
Summer Slam Tag Team Match (8/28/1989) featuring Zeus and Randy Savage with Sensational Sherri vs. Hulk Hogan and Brutus Beefcake with Miss Elizabeth
Okay, once this comes out, no-one ever needs to buy another Blu-Ray again. Or book, or music, or any other art of any kind. We can, in fact, finally announce that we have collectively achieved total perfection as a species.
Will pickup a copy of this, hopefully it will hit the $10 range not long after its release...saw this in the cinema back in the day and also saw the No Holds Barred: The Match/The Movie PPV back in the day too...
