Kinda like if a psychopath was out to kill Rocky Balboa if he was a wrestler.
17 March 2017 | by mnegovschi-61975See all my reviews

The 2 best parts:

1. Ridiculous disco-infused ending to the cage match. It's like they're trying to go for some epic Rocky vs Apollo Creed melodramatic fight vibe but failed miserably and with hilarious results.

2. The absolutely ridiculous way in which the stalker is killed. If you are going to kill the bad guy in a movie full of wrestlers, that's basically the perfect way to do it!
