John Pollock and Wai Ting review the 1993 straight-to-video feature film, Thunder In Paradise starring Terry “Hulk” Hogan.

We struggle through a recap of the film’s plot, discuss the mystery of Hogan’s eyepatch, the creepiness of Bru, cameos from Brutus Beefcake, Giant Gonzales and Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, Hogan being caught having sex via hidden camera, and more in this review you will either love or hate.

Synopsis from IMDb:

Terry “Hulk” Hogan stars as R. J. “Hurricane” Spencer who is an ex-Navy S. E. A. L. and confirmed bachelor struggling to make ends meet. In order to save his superboat THUNDER (and ultimately, his business) Spencer is forced into a marriage of convenience with the snobby Megan Whitaker. When Megan’s daughter gets kidnapped, it’s up to Spencer and his partner Bru to save the day or risk losing everything.

This edition of the Rewind-A-Wai is presented by Espresso Executive Producer, Kristoffer Marquise Ealy.
