R.I.P. Road Warrior Animal

It's no secret that Mike and Joe are huge wrestling fans, so we here at Uphill Both Ways are saddened to hear of the passing of Road Warrior Animal. He and Hawk (along with Paul Ellering), dominated the tag-team scene for years.

Often imitated, never duplicated - as they say - they weren't always the spiked shoulder-pads wearing, face-painted monsters.
Here's a look at their television debut with the 'Road Warrior' gimmick obviously that of a couple of butt-kicking, no-name takin' motorcycle badasses.

"My Old School"

Episode 88
Mike starts things off with a short discussion about "Cobra Kai" (Netflix's TV show - by way of YouTube - 'reboot' of the "Karate Kid" franchise), and Joe follows up with a couple of film festival movies. From there it's on to the episode's installment of "Mt. Retromore" and the topic of favorite childhood authors like Richard Scarry and... H.G. Wells?!? All of which leads to the main topic of looking back at "Schoolhouse Rock". It's time to unpack your adjectives and give this one a listen!

"Hot Blooded"

Episode 87
Discussions about "Unknown Origins" on Netflix and some movies from the Fantasia and FrightFest festivals get things started and then it's time for the "Mount Retromore" of comic book characters. And normally the first show of September would be about school, but since the COVID-19 pandemic is still affecting everyone, the guys decide to look at some virus and pandemic movies from the 70s and 80s, all while trying not to go into the zombie rabbit hole. Quick - before you listen, do you know which movie from 1980 starred George Kennedy, Chuck Connors, Sonny Chiba, and Olivia Hussey? The answer awaits so listen now!
