(VIDEO) Stallone/Ventura Talk Demolition Man Fight Scene - ManlyMovie

(VIDEO) Stallone/Ventura Talk Demolition Man Fight Scene

Here is a video from way back in 1993 during promotion for Demolition Man.  A couple of things to note about this video.  First Sylvester Stallone and Jesse Ventura talk about a fight scene they share in the movie.  Ventura unfortunately deliberately keeps it secret, saying we’ll have to wait and see for ourselves how good it will be. Well the scene was obviously cut.  In the scene John Spartan heads to the cryo prison to take out Phoenix’s men when they’re all in one place.  Stallone and Ventura throw down, with Stallone taking down Ventura with a running tackle.

The second thing about this video, it’s a WCW (World Championship Wrestling) set visit.  Eric Bischoff had just been given control of the company and his first order of business was to cater to males aged 18-49, as the competition, the WWF, was basically a children’s show.  Jesse Ventura at the time worked for WCW as a commentator and took some time out to film Demolition Man.  Bischoff interviewed Stallone and Ventura as part of his shifting dynamic/tone for WCW, i.e. an R-rated actioner would certainly fall into that category.

Jesse Ventura would end up being fired from WCW within a year of this video.  Big bucks were paid to bring in Hulk Hogan, and one of his demands was that Ventura had to go.  And so they sent him home.

      It’s at 2:58 to 3:00 with Sylvester Stallone running. That’s to assume that’s the cut out Sylvester Stallone vs. Jesse Ventura fight as of something said about a running tackle.

    There is a picture from the comic book adaption that has the cut out Jesse Ventura fight. It’s different in the comics than what is said on here in the movie. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e44107c50da52b6722ae627cb1896c79b26e78823ff00785826474657fcece6c.jpg
