Trivia: Regina Baff was difficult on set. Jane O'Brien who played Terrible Tommy revealed the match was supposed to end in a draw but Regina complained to the producers who forced director Robert Fowler to change it. She also shouted at Fowler more than once during filming.

Audio problem: The sound of a punch Tommy throws during her match with Princess War Star occurs before the punch connects.

Plot hole: Given Rosa just started wrestling it seems unlikely she'd get a world title match so soon. That and when she bit Tommy on the lip she should've been disqualified.

Revealing mistake: When Terrible Tommy has Rosa in an airplane spin her hair suddenly gets thicker and her legs get thicker, indicating this is Rosa's stunt double.

Plot hole: Given Tommy assaults the referee during the match, even yanking his shirt off, he should've disqualified her.

Stupidity: The celebration of Rosa beating Tommy in the world title match seems pointless as she got knocked out, Rosa didn't pin her, thus didn't become the champion.

Continuity mistake: Rosa removes her hair piece with a fake flower just after being introduced, but after Tommy's shown removing her jacket the hair piece is back on until the bell rings.

Other mistake: When Tommy tries splashing Rosa during their match she hits the ring mat with her chest and stomach yet seconds later she's somehow knocked out. I never saw her head hit after multiple viewings of that scene.

Other mistake: Rosa and her co-worker couldn't possibly be watching Terrible Tommy as she and Princess War Star enter the arena as the movie starts. Because later on they're shown wrestling in that same arena wearing those same outfits wrestling, a sign that scene was shot at a different time or a part of the wrestling scene where Rosa and another wrestler are watching Tommy.

Other mistake: Tommy's got blood coming from her left nostril even though Rosa only twisted it, she didn't do anything hard enough to cause a nosebleed.

Stupidity: When Rosa notices Terrible Tommy hurts opponents for real then the others know this also, obviously, so why don't they complain to the promoter and have her fired?

Continuity mistake: Rosa bit Tommy on the right corner of her bottom lip, but when she wipes blood away it's from the left corner of her bottom lip.

Other mistake: If Terrible Tommy's the world champion then where's the title belt she should be wearing?
