This episode starts when a wresling tournament is being held in Bikini Bottom, the prize being a millon dollars or a trip to wrestling camp. Mr. Krabs, being his money-grubbing self, wants the money, but doesn't want to wrestle, so he gets SpongeBob and Patrick to wrestle for him. He decides their name to be the "Krusty Krushers". SpongeBob and Patrick are getting almost killed in every which way by their opponents, two huge fish known as the undefeated world heavyweight champions, but end up winning when Patrick uses his "Iron Buns" to kill the champions. Mr. Krabs is excited, thinking the money is his, only to find, to his dismay, SpongeBob and Patrick choose to go to the wrestling camp instead. As the man takes away the $1,000,000 from Mr. Krabs , he turns into pieces as SpongeBob places the wrestling camp hat on him.

This episode has similarities to the Ren and Stimpy episode "Mad Dog Hoek". They are similar in that when SpongeBob tells Mr. Krabs he thinks the wrestlers want to hurt them, it is parodied to Stimpy telling Ren that he things that the Lout brothers want to hurt them, but tells him that they are just pretending to fight. Both of the episodes are like the same because the 2 episode's wrestling rounds are up to tag teams, and the weak team wins against the big and scary team.
WWE Superstars Dolph Ziggler and "Rowdy" Roddy Piper uses the Sleeper Hold as a signature move.
This is the second time SpongeBob and Patrick are involved in wrestling and Mr. Krabs acts like the manager. The first was in The Fry Cook Games.
Funny, SpongeBob and Patrick's opponents are way more musclar than they are but in The Fry Cook Games, SpongeBob and Patrick are musclar themselves.
Plankton's part was skipped when this was aired in Nickelodeon Asia.
The crowd mainly consisted of duplicates of one character (such as seeing 5 Freds in one shot).
The Royal Rumble is in fact a real wrestling event produced by the WWE. However there are 30 wrestlers with one coming out every 90 seconds, the wrestlers must wear their opponent down and throw them over the top rope of the ring and both feet must touch the floor. The last one standing gets the #1 contender spot to face either the current World Heavyweight Champion or the Current WWE Champion at WrestleMania (another WWE Pay Per View event).
The two wrestlers is look like the Brothers of Destruction "Undertaker and Kane" This two is a real wrestler in the WWE Monday Night Raw and Friday Night Smackdown series.
Krusty Krushers is a parody of Chocolate Thunder (which is in Wipeout Canada where an arm wrestler appears and places fifth).
When Patrick was showing off his metal bottom to SpongeBob, his bandanna disappears suddenly, and returns after Patrick gets up, however they once again disappear when Patrick and SpongeBob tell the microphone guy that they are there to fake wrestle.
When Patrick gets a papercut, he cuts his right arm, but sucks on his left.
When Patrick and SpongeBob are spinning in the air, SpongeBob is wearing his regular clothes, instead of his wrestling uniform.
In some scenes Patrick's bandana is gone, but in the next scene it's back.
After you first see Mr. Krabs laugh, his movement is suddenly skipped.
Two wrestlers are easily injured (they are vertebrates), but both SpongeBob and Patrick are not, because both are invertebrates.
