* StarMakingRole: The first ''Wayne's World'' film was such a hit that it launched Mike Myer's film career.
* TeasingCreator: In 2008 Mike Meyers and Dana Carvey reprized their roles as Wayne and Garth for the MTV Movie awards. In 2011 they once again reprized the roles of Wayne and Garth for a [=SNL=] skit during an episode hosted by Dana Carvey. Both times this caused fans of the films to excitedly speculate that a third ''Wayne's World'' film is in the works, and both times Mike Meyers has had to go on record as saying that it's not happening.

** The studio wanted to use a Music/GunsNRoses track instead of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody", but Mike Meyers fought for the inclusion of the Queen song. Meyers even threatened to quit the production if he didn't get what he wanted, and eventually the studio gave in to his demand.
** Penelope Spheeris, who directed the first film, was approached by Paramount to direct the sequel. Spheeris immediately declined the offer due to the fact that Mike Meyers had been so difficult to work with during the making of the first film. Instead Stephen Surjik was chosen to direct ''Wayne's World 2''. Spheeris would not make peace with Mike Meyers until after the release of the first ''Austin Powers'' film.

* SleeperHit: Nobody expected the first ''Wayne's World'' film to be as successful as it was. Although it was made on a modest $20 million budget, it remained the number 1 film at the box office for five weeks after its release and ended up grossing $121,697,323 in the United States alone. The film also became a pop culture phenomenon, with words like "schwing" and "that's what she said" entering the popular lexicon and the song "Bohemian Rhapsody" becoming a hit with a new generation of young people who had never heard it before. It didn't take Paramont very long to greenlight the sequel.

** Cassandra's horrible jungle themed music video in the first movie is a possible reference to PearlJam, who reportedly went through the same thing for their song Even Flow. They were so unhappy with the finished result they prevented its release and swore off music videos forever.
