Gordie (Arquette) and Sean (Caan) are big wrestling fans and their favorite is Jimmy "The King" King (Platt). After Jimmy King is masacred by Diamond Dallas Page, Sean and Gordie go on a quest to restore The King to his rightful place in the WCW. They cross pass with Jimmy's wife, Regina, Sal Bandini the 93 year old rwrestleing coach, and Sasha the leader of the Nitro girls (Rose McGowan). It is settled that Jimmy will train and then fight DDP for the belt, the title and $1 Million.
Trivia: The wrestling organisation that is in this film(WCW) thought it would get good publicity to put their major title (the WCW Heavyweight championship) on the star of this film, David Arquette. Sure enough he won the title in a tag team match, but quickly lost it a few weeks later, in a triple cage match (an idea from this film). Shortly after this happened, WCW went out of business.
