Added DiffLines:

** The rules of ''Battle of the Tough Guys'' are ''the exact same'' as the ones used by the ''UsefulNotes/UltimateFightingChampionship''. And this film came ''4 years'' before that sport was created.

Added DiffLines:

** Brell is almost as over the top as Zeus.


* HeyItsThatGuy: Rip's brother is the Man in Black from ''Series/{{Lost}}''.


* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Brell and his TV station competing against the WWF in the movie is pretty similar to Ted Turner and {{WCW}} competing with the {{WWE}} in real life.

Added DiffLines:

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Watching Rip punch the hell out of a ScaryBlackMan gets really, really awkward in light of the audio transcript of a racist tirade from Hulk Hogan released in the summer of 2015.


* OneSceneWonder: Stan Hansen.

* OneSceneWonder: Stan Hansen.Hansen AKA the guy who makes fun of Brell's minion's "teenie weenies".


* HeyItsThatGuy: Rip's brother is the Man in Black from ''Series/{{Lost}}''.



* {{Narm}}: Quite possibly one of the Narmiest movies ever made. Special mention needs to go to Zeus' constant screaming, Rip managing to burst through the top of a limo like an explosion (leading to the infamous "dookie" scene) and the ridiculously over-the-top final fight.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: In the movie, a rich media mogul attempts to sign Hulk Hogan, which fails. In real life, Hulk Hogan would later sign with a rich media mogul that also happened to own WCW.

* MoralEventHorizon: Brell crosses it first when he [[AttemptedRape tries to have Samantha raped]], then is utterly, irredeemably over it when [[KickTheDog he sics Zeus on Rip's brother, beating him so badly he needs a wheelchair afterward]].
