Trivia

Most of the episodes were just about the fighters and their matches, however one short-lived story arc revolved around the mustachioed announcer Nick Diamond. He was injured when the announcer's tower collapsed (after Roger Ebert was flung into it during a match) and he was hospitalized. In the episodes that followed, he was shown in the hospital, and one of the matches featured was a "dream match" of his with Elvis fighting Jerry Garcia. The "Nick Diamond getting injured" character arc was one of, if not the only, character arc on the show. See more »

Goofs

In the episode where Stacy dies, there is a fight with Gwyneth Paltrow and Winona Ryder. In the fighters' pictures, Winona is seen wearing a green shirt over her white vest, yet throughout the fight, Winona is wearing a red shirt instead See more »

Quotes

[Axl Rose pulls out a sharp object from under his kilt]
Johnny Gomez: Nick, what the hell is this psycho doing?
[Celtic music played in background]
Nick Diamond: Ancient Scottish soldiers wearing kilts such as Axl's always carried a dagger strapped to their ankle. Tradition has it that once a soldier removes it from its scabbard, he can't put it back without drawing blood... even if it's his own.
Johnny Gomez: It's scissors, Nick.
[Celtic music abruptly stops]
Nick Diamond: Oh... uh, that must be a different tradition.

Alternate Versions

During the original airing of Deathbowl 99, during halftime, the Madonna/Michael Jackson fight didn't occur. The two face off verbally, but after Mills sends them from the ring, it goes into Tyson/Holyfield. In later airings, though, the match is added. See more »

This show will be missed.
24 June 2012 | by slimshady5623See all my reviews

I remember back in the day, I used to watch this show every time it came on. This show is pretty cool because its the only show that you can see celebrity's fight one another. The announcer's had the most of the comedy but the stars had more of the intense violence and it's shocking to see that it's a show only for teenagers for that type of violence it shows. Some episodes however were to live on and some were at least to say to be blown up in smithereens. The battles are really funny, and well written, but there is a few episodes that are actually pretty nasty in certain ways. I remember there was this pattern in the show. Usually, the celebrity that seemed to be winning at first, always ended up as the loser.
