Two dimwit sewage workers watch their hero, WCW wrestler Jimmy King, get screwed out of the World title by wrestler Diamond Dallas Page and evil WCW owner Titus Sinclair. They embark on a quest to help their hero win his title - and honor - back. Features cameos by lots of WCW wrestlers.Written by
At one point of the film, when the cop is going off on his son about people that ended up as failures because they followed their dreams, he mentions Michael Bolton. This is most likely a reference to how Bolton was once a hard rocker, and "sold out" to doing adult contemporary music. See more »
After the triple tier caged match, when the King is shown holding the title belt, his name already appears on the nameplate but Diamond Dallas Page was the champion going into the match. It should be noted, however, on the WCW product it was not unusual for the name plate not be changed for several weeks after a title change. See more »
Just cause it's your dream doesn't make it right or noble or whatever! Charles Manson was following his dream! Joseph Stalin, Michael Bolton, you get my point?

Makes wrestling seem stupid.
I myself am an avid wrestling fan, I have liked it all my life and I even wrestle for a local promotion. I heard about this film and thought finally a film about wrestling, but after watching it I was devastated because I knew that non-wrestling fans would watch it and think that that was A) the way wrestling works and B) the way wrestling fans act. This was supposed to make wrestling look good, but in my opinion it does the complete opposite, packed with child-like humour which could be bettered by anyone with half a brain, and makes you believe that all fans think wrestling is real, which we all know it isn't it should be seen as a entertainment not as a sport. Now I know there are wrestling critics out there who say its for kids anyway, therefore having a film containing childish humour should be fine but this is not the case. I know certain things are far fetched to say the least but I find it more entertaining than most other "real" sports. But in conclusion, if you are a wrestling fan, I'd watch the film, but for god's sake don't get your hopes up before watching it, so that anything that does appeal is a bonus.
