The WWE already has a Scooby Doo Wrestlemania animated match-up already in production. Michael Luisi, President, WWE Studios said in the press release:

"WWE is family-friendly entertainment, so partnering with Warner Bros. on a Flintstones/WWE project was a natural extension of our Scooby Doo deal. This new, animated feature allows us to showcase our brand with young fans and loyal Flintstones enthusiasts alike."

UPDATE: I was just told that the creative personnel on this project (led by designer Shane Glines) is quite good. More details to come.
