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

While Brad Garrett has an introduction credit in 'The Jetsons Movie' (ie: ..and introducing..), It was actually Hulk Hogan's Rock N Wrestling that was his first credit in which he provided the voice of the titular character for more of the production than Hogan himself. See more »

Great show
23 February 2002 | by (Melbourne) – See all my reviews

Rock 'n' Wrestling was fun entertainment for adults and children alike. Storylines were light and fluffy and great fun. There's no reason why a similar show made now with the latest WWF wrestlers couldn't work either. I'd watch it. Imagine Rock, Stone Cold, HHH, Kurt Angle and Undertaker in a cartoon together!
