Storyline

Cartoon series featuring the out-of-ring escapades of the stars of the World Wrestling Federation. Hulk Hogan and Mean Gene Okerlund led the "face," or good guys, team (which included Andre the Giant, Hillbilly Jim, Jimmy Snuka, Junkyard Dog, Tito Santana, Wendi Richter and Captain Lou Albano); while Rowdy Roddy Piper and his team of "heels," or bad guys (including the Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff, Big John Studd, Mr. Fuji, Bobby Heenan and the Fabulous Moolah), usually caused trouble. Intersperced between the cartoon segments were live-action comedy vignettes featuring the WWF cast. "Rock 'N' Wrestling" was among the WWF programs which helped the Vince McMahon-run promotion establish professional wrestling as "sports entertainment."

Trivia

The series theme song, entitled "Hulk Hogan's Theme" and available on The Wrestling Album, was an edited instrumental version of Bonnie Tyler's song "Ravishing" from her Secret Dreams and Forbidden Fire album. The theme, written by Jim Steinman, was also used by Hulk Hogan as his entrance music, prior to adopting "Real American" by Rick Derringer (which at the time was being used by the tag team of Mike Rotunda and Barry Windham).

Pure 1980's Crap
17 January 2003 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

This series is a perfect illustration of why adults wouldn't (and won't) admit that they are wrestling fans. The show takes these one-dimensional characters, who in some cases don't even RESEMBLE their wrestling personas (Andre the Giant is portrayed as a bumbling idiot, for example) and drop them in the same moronic situations as every other 80's cartoon. (i.e., meeting a remote jungle tribe) And to top it all off, they couldn't even get WRESTLER'S THEMSELVES to voice the characters!! Hulk Hogan found time to record the live segments, but even Gene Okerlund was too busy to supply his own voice? Come on!! Thank God Vince McMahon has never gotten the idea to redo this disaster.
