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).

Worst show ever.
22 January 2005 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

Simple. They take some pop culture icons, and make an animated show out of them. This is the worst show I ever watched in my childhood. It weirded me out, it confused the heck out of me. I had nightmares from that. Hi. Welcome to "Matthew Rants". Today, this stupid show given by CBS. This show came on after MUPPET BABIES. I'd rather see ANIMALS ANIAMLS ANIMALS, or THE CHARLIE BROWN AND SNOOPY SHOW, than this junk. The voices don't sound like the real wrestlers. Brad Garret of 2 STUPID DOGS and EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND as the voice of Hulk Hogan. And Charlie Adler of COW AND CHICKEN, and TINY TOON ADVENTURES as the voice of Rowdy Rodney Piper. I had nightmares from this show. Don't get me started. That was one of the bad shows of the 80's. American IDOL, is bad and boring. THE GRIM ADVENTURES OF BILLY AND MANDY is bad. Billy is stupider than Patrick and has an I.Q. lower than Cosmo. Watch THE GRIM ADVENTURES OF BILLY AND MANDY, and you will loose 5 brain cells. Watch HULK HOGAN's ROCK AND WRESTLING, and you'll get nightmares. Don't worry. I'll see if I can get me DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS comment up.
