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 »

This movie is not supposed to be Oscar worthy. Lets face facts, the script is horrible, the acting terrible, yet anytime this movie is on, I have to watch it. The wrestling is too fake, the one liners are worse, yet, I can't get enough of this film. This movie proves that you can really enjoy a bad movie.
