Storyline

Rip is the World Wrestling Federation champion who is faithful to his fans and the network he wrestles for. Brell, the new head of the World Television Network, wants Rip to wrestle for his network. Rip refuses and goes back to his normal life. Still looking for a way to raise ratings, Brell initiates a show called "The Battle of the Tough Guys", a violent brawling competition. A mysterious man, Zeus, wins the competition. This gets Brell to use him as an angle to get at Rip. Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

Trivia

Rip's finisher is a running double sledgehammer, the one Hogan used during his matches in Japan, where it is known as the 'Axe Bomber'. In the Japanese Fire Pro series of wrestling games, many real wrestlers from different promotions are featured using fake names, and Hulk Hogan is known in that series as 'Axe Duggan'. See more »

The only pro wrestling movie!
8 May 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Back in 89 Hulk finally got his first starring role and you can tell he had a lot of fun with it. He plays Rip, the WWF champion with a heart of gold. But when Rip doesn't switch networks, the greedy promoter Brell gets down and dirty, and eventually finds the massive Zeus to lure Hogan into their trap.

Overall, a fun movie to watch, especially if your a big Hulkster fan like myself.
