Few will remember the 1991 film starring wrestler Hulk Hogan.

WWE legend Undertaker was also there - and he's now settling the score.

Austin – With Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena, some names from the wrestling industry have now established themselves in well-known triple-A productions in Hollywood.

Things were different for a long time - only Terry Gene Bollea, better known as Hulk Hogan, made the jump from the ring to several moderately better-known productions such as “Mr.

Babysitter” from 1993 or “The Hammer” from 1989.

In 1991 he also tried to make the then generous box office ring with the action comedy “The Knight from Space”.

But that failed - the film grossed a total of eight million dollars in the United States.

With a budget of $11 million, The Knight from Space was a commercial failure.

Today WWE retiree Mark “The Undertaker” Calaway delivers a devastating verdict.

“It was terrible”: WWE legend Undertaker is ashamed of production with fellow wrestler Hulk Hogan

In the podcast

Cheap Heat

with Peter Rosenberg, the well-known wrestler Undertaker gave insights into the history of the production.

He remembered getting an offer - and auditioning for the role of a menacing but comical alien mercenary named Hutch.

"They called me and said, 'Hogan is doing this movie in LA, we want you to audition for it.'

I auditioned for the film and got the role.

Worst movie of all time.

It was terrible.

Really, really terrible.

That kept me busy for a while,” he says today.

A devastating verdict from Undertaker, who has to deal with an artificial hip today.

“The Knight from Space”, released in the USA as “Suburban Commando”, is about Shep Ramsey, an intergalactic warrior.

After a fit of rage, Shep destroys the controls of his escape pod and is forced to land on Earth, where he has to spend weeks until his pod is operational again.

Meanwhile, shy architect Charlie Wilcox struggles with professional and financial problems, while his wife Jenny rents out their former workshop to support the family.

Shep moves in with the Wilcox, which initially comes as a shock to Charlie.

However, when Charlie discovers that Shep is of alien origin and accidentally fires a phaser, he attracts the attention of intergalactic bounty hunters.

Wrestler Undertaker starred alongside Christopher Lloyd and Shelley Duvall

The Undertaker had a small role in The Knight from Space as half of the bounty hunters who followed Shep to Earth.

He is mostly silent.

Other well-known actors in the film were Christopher Lloyd, who today is best known from his “Back to the Future” films - a few also from the PC game “Toonstruck” from 1996. Also there: Shelley Duvall, leading actress in the horror film classic “The Shining”.

Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger were actually supposed to have the leading roles in the film - but they decided to shoot the comedy “Twins” instead.

Meanwhile, WWE legend Hulk Hogan finds surprising words about his past.
