    That actually sounds kinda cool. It could provide a little outside of wrestling attention for Brodus, The Miz, and Sin Cara which is always good just like John Cena in the Nickelodeon Fred Movies.

  • Blake

    Wow the way he talked was scary but they should have said drive sober or I’ll get ya

  • Ben

    Please let the ‘ghostly bear’ be big show or mark Henry – this is possibly the dumbest/funniest thing I heard all day. At first I thought Richard was winding us up!

  • Dave Barton

    The 40yo that I am says "Scooby-Doo & WrestleMania?? WTF?!"

    The kid in me who grew up watching SD in the 70's says "Cool! Can't wait!!"

  • kbunyon

    Jinkies!

    Our den/playroom is actually called our 'Scooby room' because of my youngest's love of Scooby Doo. That's the room she'd watch her Scooby DVDs, so it ended up being called that. The plan is to paint it brown with an aqua stripe and three black dots in interesting spots on each of the four walls.

    Sam is going to be so excited over this movie, even though she has grown out of her absolute obsession for Scoobie has dwindled.

    I am excited about this, but at the same time I'm a little disappointed. With the names that they have listed here as helping with the voices, I don't see Zack Ryder. You can't tell me that Scooby and Shaggy wouldn't be Broski's.

  • ImAwesome420

    They should have Daniel Bryan too.
    Yes! Yes! Yes!

  • thebops

    How is Sin Cara lending his voice?? :)

  • eyepickcotton

    I hope Vince is the evildoer. “It was me Shaggy it was me all along!”

    • thebops

      "I woulda got away with it too… if it weren't for you pesky kids!!"

  • SRP

    I’m looking forward to this simply because it’s the closest thing to a follow up of the WWF cartoon from the 80s.

  • Bryan

    Im not gonna lie, this actually sounds pretty cool!

    • Wwefan4ever

      It is actually possibly the best idea wwe has had lately. My dad really wants to see it more than I do

  • Jashaun

    This is the type of movie cena belongs in

  • a person
