They Live

This week we pay tribute to another wrestling legend who passed away too soon. Rowdy Roddy Piper (yes, Ronda Rousey took the nickname from him) was one of the iconic villains of the WWF. We covered his great rivalry with Hulk Hogan in one of our first episodes about Wrestlemania. Did you know he also went on to have quite the acting career? Well, neither did we. But we did remember this movie, because it is a classic. OK, let’s say cult classic.

We remember Roddy Piper and then dissect the nuances of the complex plot of John Carpenter’s magnum opus (yup, still talking about They Live). Pierre reminds loyal listeners (Hi Mom!) of the time 5 weeks ago that he imagined a Fantasy Reboot of this movie starring Dwayne Johnson.┬áTravis retells his story from the time he went with his grandma to see Roddy Piper at the James Knight Center in Miami. Yes, we are running out of material… Enjoy anyway!
