    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Rasslor: (referring to Monkey) This is ridiculous! Is this the last opponent that this puny planet has to offer?!
        Probotor: Sorry, the baby's popular with the kids.

      • Rasslor: Fight me or I destroy the earth! Now let the games begin!

      • Rasslor: I do not like your kicks so high. I do not like them, Sam-U-Rai.

      • Mike Mann: Live from the Shippodrome, I'm Mike Mann.
        Probotor: And I'm the fly guy, Probotor.

      • Major Glory: So, alien, you think you set foot on American soil without a green card, do you? Well, I am America, mister! Do you think you can contend with the speed of America, the strength of America, the Constitution of... America?
        Rasslor: Here's my John Hancock! (punches him out) Major Glory, with your breath minty fresh, I salute you!

    • NOTES (3)

      • It's appropriate that Rasslor, an intergalactic wrestler, is voiced by Randy "Macho Man" Savage of WWF fame. He even has Randy's "Oh, yeah" tagline at the end.

      • Rasslor's name is an obvious variation on the word, "wrestler."

      • This is the first appearance of Major Glory, Val Halen, The Infraggable Krunk, and many of their friends who would also be on some of the Dexter episodes and their own segment "The Justice Friends."

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Rasslor's Submission Hold
        When Rasslor is fighting Capital G, the submission hold that he puts him in so much resembles Ric Flair's signature move, The Figure 4 Leglock.

      • Rasslor: I do not like your kicks so high. I do not like them, Sam-U-Rai.
        When Samurai kicks at Rasslor after his initial speech, Rasslor grabs his leg and says this. This is a reference Dr. Seuss' "Green Eggs and Ham" in which the tall guy says "I do not like green eggs and ham! I do not like them, Sam-I-Am!"

      • Episode: Plot
        This episode is a reference to/parody of a Marvel Comics' Fantastic Four story, in which The Thing battles a super-powered alien, "The Champion," to a standstill.
