Ronda Rousey to Remake Road House. Any Objections?



I really hope this won’t ruin the sacred integrity of the cinematic classic that is the original, which gave us the classic phrase “Pain don’t hurt.”

Seriously, some things are sacred, but Road House already got a sequel that starred Johnathon Schaech (remember him?), so this franchise is far from untouchable. Good for Rousey – let’s have her remake all the Patrick Swayze movies if this works out. Dirty Dancing, Ghost…maybe skip Red DawnPoint Br…oops, too late on that one.

Will I believe she’s a true-life redneck like I believed Swayze? Will they find a suitable replacement for Terry Funk’s character? (Iron Sheik is probably available) I MUST KNOW! (Eventually.)
