Character error 

Upon being discharged from the hospital, Randy receives a note from the promoter. In the note, the word "your" is used incorrectly in the sentence "Your a warrior". The correct usage would have been the contraction for "you are" which is "you're".

When Robinson is playing the 'Wrestling Jam' video game with a neighbor boy, the boy mistakenly refers to the British SAS special forces in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare as "British SNS".

Randy is seen jumping up from his bed using both arms, after receiving a coronary artery bypass. If he really had his sternum bone cut he couldn't, or shouldn't lift anything with his arms over 5lbs for as long as it takes for his sternum bone to heal properly.

Continuity

Before one of Randy's matches, Randy is putting tape on his arms. One shot there is tape on one arm then the next shot there is no tape on the same arm, then there is tape on it. This is for the left arm.

When Randy wakes up in the hospital he is not on a ventilator machine and is breathing on his own (he is wearing a nasal cannula with oxygen); Yet as the camera pans out in the next scene it can clearly be seen that he has been intubated and is attached to a ventilator machine that is breathing for him.

Factual errors 

Pam is a topless dancer at a bar in NJ that serves alcohol. However, in NJ, if a bar serves alcohol, the dancers must be clothed in at least a G-String and pasties and it's called a "Go-Go Bar". If a bar does not serve alcohol, the dancers can be nude.

Poster for the match between The Ram and the Ayatollah reads Saturday, April 6, 1989. April 6, 1989, was in fact a Thursday.

When Randy is in the pharmacy he is paged with the message "Robin Ramsinski, your prescription is ready in the pharmacy". Stating that Randy had a prescription (or any other specific material items) waiting for him is a violation of HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). The pharmacy is allowed to say his name and call for him to come to their front desk, but that's it.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When the neighbor boy is telling Randy about Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, he says that it is set in Iraq. While Iraq is not specified as a location in the game, one of the four Call Of Duty 4 locations IS an unnamed country in the Middle East (the other three locales are Azerbaijan, Russia, and Prypiat, Ukraine) and given world events at the time the movie was made, the kid's assumption is plausible.

Revealing mistakes 

In one scene at the deli, Randy pages his supervisor over the store's intercom. The problem is, the button he hits to do it is actually the button to put an incoming call on hold.
