Hello. My Name is Zach Dominello. This is Wrestling With Movies. Prepare to die…from enjoyment!
Welcome to Wrestling With Movies, the show where I (Zach aka Koala Mask) am joined by a special guest to talk about a movie starring a pro wrestler. Got it? Good.
First thing first, special thanks to Bill Sours for the great into music.
On this episode I am joined by Matt (@sohart_) to discuss a movie that is very dear to the both of us, The Princess Bride, which features the late, great Andre The Giant as the One Man Brute Squad, Fezzik. I had an absolute blast talking with Matt about a movie that we both love to death and watch fairly regularly. Be warned though, it’s a longy (nearly two hours!).

- If you’re a fan of The Princess Bride, you must read Cary Elwes’s book “As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride.” It packed with hilarious and fascinating stories. I read it before recording this episode and referred to it a lot.
- Enjoy the show, and have fun storming the castle! Please bring me back something.
