“Suburban Commando” may be liked by some 90s kids, but The Undertaker says the film he had a small role in was the “worst movie ever.”
During an interview with Peter Rosenberg on the “Cheap Heat” podcast, Undertaker talked about how he came to appear in the film as one of the intergalactic bounty hunters.
The wrestling legend recalls meeting with Vince McMahon, Bruce Prichard, JJ Dillon and Pat Patterson about joining WWF long ago, only for the meeting to end with the WWE Chairman saying they didn’t have anything for him at the moment.
Calaway then got a call a few weeks later from someone in WWE saying Hogan was going to be filming a movie in Los Angeles soon and they wanted him to audition for a part. This ended up being “Suburban Commando,” which Undertaker landed the role in.
For those unfamiliar, here’s the 1991 movie’s plot synopsis:
Problems with his rocket compel space-traveling vigilante Shep Ramsey (Hulk Hogan) to spend some time on Earth. Plunking himself down in the middle of suburbia, he rents a room from Charlie (Christopher Lloyd) and Jenny Wilcox (Shelley Duvall). Shep attempts to acclimate himself — he skateboards, he accosts a mail carrier — but he’s destined to be a fish out of water. But when his outer space enemies arrive and pick a fight with his new friends, Shep is ready to prove his mettle.
“Worst movie ever,” Calaway says on the podcast about the movie. “It was awful. Truly, truly awful.”
Considering the movie currently has an audience score of 32% on Rotten Tomatoes, it seems safe to say The Undertaker isn’t alone in his belief.
