During the filming of final match, the crowd began to heckle the wrestlers because they could clearly see that their blows were faked. At that time, wrestlers publicly maintained that everything that they did in the ring was real. But the wrestlers had to pull their punches for the sake of being able to shoot multiple takes. Suddenly, a fight broke out between Roddy Piper and one of the Cannibals leading to a bloody brawl involving all of the wrestlers. Director Hal Needham, a former stuntman, jumped in to stop them but was tossed out of the ring. The brawl was eventually broken up leaving the audience, cast, and crew stunned. Later that day, Piper revealed to Dirk Benedict that the wrestlers had improvised the fight in order to get the audience to believe that wrestling was real again. See more »

This movie is very funny. It has a great cast of famous Wrestlers from the 70s and 80s. Bruno Samartino, Rick Flair, Freddie Blassie, The Sheik, Capt. Lou Ablano, The Samonans, The Towers Of Pain, Roddy Pipper, and a few more. Overall the plot isn't that interesting, and some parts are kind of dumb, but it is all worth it for the ending. At the end the legendary Chick Hern gets to announce tag team championship title match. Chick did an amazing job announcing that wrestling match. That just proves how Chick Hern is the best announcer of all time. No other sports announcer can call a professional wrestling match that good. I would even watch snails race if Chick Hern was the announcer. Plus also the famous baseball announcer Harry Carry was in it too. This movie is a must see for all fans of 80s Wrestling or for fans of the Lakers.
