Sitcom (produced in Canada) about a private school teacher who also moonlighted as a professional wrestler. Robert Randall (the late Alzado) would balance day to day problems with his students and with his kids Ellen (Stoffman) and Mark (Bisson). The show would also feature actual wrestlers from the National Wrestling Alliance. Written by

This show lasted about a season on Canadian TV. It featured ex-football pro Lyle Alzado trying to raise two teenage kids while balancing his career as an educator and moonlighting as a pro-wrestler. It seemed determined to be as zany as many of the sitcoms on American TV but the comedy of Learning the Ropes was almost always sub-par and it failed to attract much of an audience. One of the teenage kids was played by "Stephanie McKay" from Degrassi Junior High, who left Degrassi for this. It was not a great career decision. Alzado looked to be in good shape when on camera. Sad to say, he would die of cancer just a few years later, which he said was due to his steroid use.
