The movie's title became the name of a specialty type in the WWF during the mid-1990s where there were no disqualifications or countouts; matches ended only for pinfall or submission. This replaced various other names used for this type: Anything Goes, No DQ/No Countouts. However, these matches were usually not in a steel cage (as the Hogan/Beefcake-Savage/Zeus match was) and was never in an octagon-shaped ring (as in the movie). See more »
In the ring scenes, Hogan wears the WWF "Winged Eagle" belt, the one used by the WWF from 1988-1998. In the dressing room scenes before his match with Zeus, he has the "XL" championship belt, the one never used by the WWF but designed to be worn by Andre The Giant. See more »
Although I'm a huge World Wrestling Federation, Hulk Hogan, wrestling in general & these kind of movie fan (Stallone, Arnold, Van Damme), as an adult I find this movie unacceptable. It really is a pretty bad flick, no acting at all, used to love it when i was 6-7 and maybe I could recommend it to a 6y old, but times are different now and I'm not sure even they would like it. Hulk Hogan is bad, as always, Tiny Lister the same, but Joan Severence eclipsed them all, her 'acting' is something really special. Director Wright is a TV- director and it shows all the way. It is a movie made for a special purpose (wrestling feud), def. fulfilled it's original task and should stay in the late 80's.
