Trivia

For promotional purposes, WCW head writer Vince Russo wrote for David Arquette to make many guest appearances and win the WCW World Title on an episode of WCW Thunder (1998). Most people called this the worst move in WCW's history and the final nail in its coffin, before going out of business in 2001. Arquette himself even admitted that it was not a good idea, only doing it because booker Vince Russo kept talking him into it. See more »

A wrestling comedy that made me laugh!
18 March 2002 | by JuderioSee all my reviews

I thought this movie was great. It explores the wrestling topic and gives us an insight on fans who are crazed by it. I loved this movie. Rose McGowan stars in this hit alongside David Arquette, Scott Caan and Oliver Platt. It had me laughing now and again and it also had me watching it three times in a row.
