Trivia

Years later, Sylvester Stallone explained why he agreed to appear in this movie, saying, "(Producer) Menahem Golan kept offering me more and more money, until I finally thought, 'What the hell - no one will see it!'"
Sylvester Stallone was reportedly unhappy with the final film. In an interview with the Ain't It Cool News website, he said that if he had directed the film he would have made it with a darker tone - changing the setting to an urban environment, using scored music instead of rock songs, and making the Las Vegas finale more ominous.
Pro wrestling legend Scott Norton has an uncredited role as one of the arm wrestlers in the tournament.

John Wetton, lead singer of the rock group Asia, sang "Winner Takes It All" for the movie, but after performing the song, it was felt that his voice wasn't "mean" enough, so the song was offered to Sammy Hagar, whose version ended up being the one on the soundtrack.
