Rip's finisher is a running double sledgehammer, the one Hogan used during his matches in Japan, where it is known as the 'Axe Bomber'. In the Japanese Fire Pro series of wrestling games, many real wrestlers from different promotions are featured using fake names, and Hulk Hogan is known in that series as 'Axe Duggan'. See more »

In the theatrical version, the film ends with a shot of Rip alone in the ring giving the "Rip 'Em!" sign before fading out to the end credits. In the home video version, the film ends with a shot of Rip and Randy hugging each other in the ring (complete with the sound of Rip makes as he does the "Rip 'Em!" sign) still audible before fading to the end credits. The 2012 DVD from WWE Studios restores the original theatrical closing shot. See more »
This movie is actually quite good. It is about WWF Champion, Rip (played by then WWF Champion Hulk Hogan) and it focuses on an evil boss of a rival television company who tries to lure Rip on to his wrestling show and away from the WWF (sound familiar? Only in the film Rip doesnt take the money). The acting is generally bad as it is in every Hulk Hogan movie, but that doesnt seem to matter here as it is just mindless fun.
