John Pollock & Wai Ting review Brian Pillman: Loose Cannon, WWE’s 2006 documentary profiling the life, career and death of one of wrestling’s most innovative performers.
We discuss the doc’s presentation of Pillman’s brief-yet-full life: Playing for the Cincinnati Bengals, training with The Hart Family in Calgary, teaming with Steve Austin as the The Hollywood Blonds, the development of his reality-blurring “Loose Cannon” character that would result in a series of controversial scenes in the WWF, his career-altering car accident, and the controversial presentation surrounding his untimely passing at the age of 35.
This edition of the Rewind-A-Wai is presented by Espresso Executive Producer, Kishan Ameerali.
