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."

How could you forget Hulk Hogan?
2 July 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I remember watching the cartoon as a kid but not actually retaining a lot about it. I know that Hulk Hogan had his group of good guy wrestling buddies, and then there was a rival group always causing trouble. It was back when a lot of kids idolized Hulk Hogan, thus the cartoon series. You also had all the classic wrestlers in it and while I never watched a lot of the more recent WWF/WWE series, I can say that none of those guys will be memorable as the ones from back in the day.

I remember liking it a lot, especially the cool theme song with the rock piano in the beginning. I haven't seen it since it was canceled years ago but it'd be fun to watch an episode again.
