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).

Nice Cartoon Featuring Wrestlings Biggest Hero
2 August 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

A lot of youngsters looked up to Hulk Hogan in the 1980's and it was nice to have a cartoon for them to watch. Just like many 1980's cartoons, the stories were very altruistic and emphasized things such as loyalty, friendship and honour. Hulk Hogan was joined by his buddies such as Captain Lou Albano and Superfly Jimmy Snuka to battle Roddy Piper and his cronies.

The stories were quite moralistic throughout and I guess the moral was not to take shortcuts or cheat. In one memorable episode, the bad guys tried to cheat in a baseball game but the episode showed how cheaters do not prosper. Hogan and his buddies would always be there to help out those in need.

I was an adult when I first watched this but I found it a great cartoon to watch. Go Hulk Go!
