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."

Even the World Wrestling Federation had a cartoon
9 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To quote an old saying from a famous man "Anything can happen in the World Wrestling Federation".

Well even outside the World Wrestling Federation a cartoon can be made with many of it's famous WWF Superstars.

The series follow the adventures of many WWF Superstars who were places into two groups, The Good Wrestlers leaded by Hulk Hogan and the bad Wrestlers lead by Rowdy Roddy Pipper.

However despite the show features animation WWF Superstars none of the wrestlers did the voice over for the characters only did short live action skits for the show.

The wrestlers were voiced by professional voice actors.D.I.C. did the animation for the show.

Some of the episodes were interesting some not so much it did feature an good theme song and the intro show Hulk Hogan live action then the cartoon take itself.

So over all Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n' Wrestling had to be one of the most interesting shows of the 1980s so if you're a fan of the 80s and The WWF you might want to give it a try.
