Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Reportedly, both Bruce Springsteen and Mickey Rourke were paid no money for their contributions towards the film.
  • The main climatic scene featuring the rematch between Randy "The Ram" Robinson and The Ayatollah was taped at two Ring of Honor events on 3/14/08 and 3/15/08. Several Ring of Honor wrestlers also have cameos in the movie.
  • This movie, and Mickey Rourke's status as lead actor in it, was used in a story angle by the world's most well-known pro-wrestling company, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE, previously known as the World Wrestling Federation or WWF). The story angle reached its climax at The 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania (2009) (TV), where Rourke himself made an appearance at the event (not as a wrestler however).
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): Randy is shown on various occasions with tanned buttocks. However, in the scene where he tans at a salon, he is shown keeping on his underwear.
