Trivia

The WCW World Heavyweight Title used in the movie is completely opposite to the actual title, color wise. The real belt was gold with silver inlays on a black leather strap; originally brown, but after years of use and being soaked, sweat turned it a darker color. The belt in the movie was mostly silver with some gold detailing. For example, the area that says "World Heavyweight Champion" has a gold backing with silver letters, where the original has gold letters and a silver background. See more »

GREAT MOVIE!!!

I am a wrestling fan, but when I first saw the trailer to this movie it looked cheesy and I was SO disappointed. Let me assure you the trailers do this movie no justice...it was absolutely GUT-BUSTING!! I've never laughed so hard at a movie in theater before, there were also many people there enjoying the movie who obviously were not wrestling fans. For true fans though the movie is even more funny because of all the inside jabs at the business. Noticeably "Sinclair" as some kind of weird Vince McMahon/ Eric Bischoff mix, Sal bears remarkable resemblance to the great Stu Hart and his wrestling school, and many more. The "main event" was incredibly exciting, the best wrestling match any fan will ever see. This film is must see for fans and non-fans alike. 9 out of 10.
