Giant head

Andre’s head gets memorialized. We mean it. Anybody want a peanut?

Andre the Giant has a posse, and its members are sure to snap up this latex mask. SikRik has produced 35 numbered, limited-edition copies available for $125 apiece; a not-so-exclusive edition will follow for $99.

Andre, a star of “The Princess Bride,” (see: “I Love You, Man” for related peanut discussion) “Conan the Destroyer” and many a staged WWF match, died in 1993 at the age of 46. His memorable mug will live on atop the shoulders of at least 35 fervent fans. —Rod Lott

Monster Brawl

If wrestling were like this, I'd watch.

Imagine there were a pay-per-view pro wrestling championship battle in which the fighters were not your Hulk Hogans, but hulking creatures. Would you watch it?

No Holds Barred

Lord, 'No.'


Rod Lott
RLJ Entertainment's new Blu-ray for No Holds Barred begins with what seems like dozens of trailers for movies starring pro wrestlers from the WWE talent pool. Each flick went direct to home video, but once upon a time — aka 1989 — one had to go to the multiplex to catch such a spectacle.
