Trivia

The film was partly inspired by Fray Tormenta ("Friar Storm"), aka Rev. Sergio Gutiérrez Benítez - a Mexican priest who became a wrestler to raise money for his parish.
During some of the wrestling scenes they used blow up dolls to replace some of the audience. Supposedly, they cost much less than extras and they looked real.
Was sent to theaters under the codename "Toast".
While filming a wrestling scene, Jack Black jumped from the ring and struck his head on a chair. This caused a black eye and a gash above his right eye which needed stitches.
Ramses is portrayed by Cesar Gonzalez, a real-life luchador best known as Silver King, a second-generation luchador who is the son of lucha libre legend Dr. Wagner. He is also the brother of fellow luchador Dr. Wagner Jr. and the uncle of the recently debuted Dr. Wagner III.
During filming Jack Black recorded a series of "confessionals" which were uploaded onto the Internet as video podcasts available from iTunes. They became one of the most popular podcasts in the world.
"Chancho" is Mexican slang for pig, Esqueleto translates as skeleton.
The "Nachomobile" is a "customized" version of a pedal's tricycle commercialized in Mexico, which then gets an after-market upgrade by adding a scooter motorcycle without the front wheel and by adding wider tires.
