1. The Legend of Chuck Finley Is Born

We finally find out how Sam Axe’s famous alter ego was born. While Axe was in Colombia which is the locale for this movie, he was reading a Sports magazine. It comes to light that the Commander used to bet on the pitcher, Chuck Finley quite frequently.

Since he saw quite a bit of success when he did that, Sam felt it was a lucky name. That is why he used it for all of his undercover operations throughout the series run. Bruce Campbell’s father who coincidentally had the same first name as the pitcher, also knew a Chuck Finley in real life. This made the name easy for Campbell to reference.
