Episode #20 The Wrestler (2008)

September 25th, 2017

Aging wrestler Randy "The Ram" Robinson (Mickey Rourke) is long past his prime but still ready and rarin' to go on the pro-wrestling circuit. After a particularly brutal beating, however, Randy hangs up his tights, pursues a serious relationship with a long-in-the-tooth stripper (Marisa Tomei), and tries to reconnect with his estranged daughter (Evan Rachel Wood). But he can't resist the lure of the ring and readies himself for a comeback.

It's PART TWO of our big double feature and our twentieth episode (proper) of Three Way Theater! We celebrate with our look at the 2008 version of The Wrestler, directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Mickey Rourke as Randy "The Ram" Robinson. The boys talk about the similarities of wrestling and stripping, Lumberjake has a new game to play, and JC cracks the code on the ambiguous ending that rocks Mikey's world. All this and so much more on Episode #20!

Episode #19: The Wrestler (1974)

August 28th, 2017

Professional wrestling promoter Frank Bass (Ed Asner) has to deal with the pressures of running a professional wrestling promotion, facing the pressures of constantly finding new wrestlers to pull in the crowds, keeping the wrestlers he has under contract under control and especially dealing with the fact that the top man, the champion of “the League” Mike Bullard (Verne Gagne) is getting old and there is pressure to replace him with a younger wrestler. One such possible replacement is the latest challenger Billy Taylor (Billy Robinson).

It’s the first half of Three Way Theater’s DOUBLE FEATURE as we review the 1974 version of The Wrestler! Starring Ed Asner, Verne Gagne, and literally every other wrestling competing under the NWA banner the gang tries to make sense of Verne Gagne’s love letter to Verne Gagne.

For Episode #20 we’ll be reviewing Darren Aronofsky’s version of The Wrestler starring Mickey Rourke, so be sure to check out Episode #19 to get all caught up!
