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

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 »

What's the only difference between this film and pro-wrestling? The movie is more predictable. Also, Hulk Hogan is not as good an actor on the big screen than he is at, say, WrestleMania. But if you're looking for mindless pro-wrestling dramatics, by all means, remember the name: NO HOLDS BARRED!
