It has been a decade since the live-action "Scooby-Doo" in 2002 that brought together the talents of Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, Linda Cardellini, Rowan Atkinson and Isla Fisher, and in Hollywood years, that's basically olden times. So an animated feature is in the works, which makes sense. However, the involvement of WWE Entertainment is totally baffling.

Warner Bros. is teaming up with the wrestling company on a new "Scooby-Doo" that will involve a mystery at WrestleMania. No, seriously. Here's the plot: When Shaggy and Scooby win tickets to WrestleMania, the entire gang travels in the Mystery Machine to WWE City to attend the epic event. However, when a mysterious ghostly bear appears and threatens to ruin the show, Scooby, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne and Fred work with WWE Superstars to solve the case.

Listen, we're not naive enough to believe that any childhood favorites will reach the big screen without being wholly pillaged in the name of corporate tie-ins, branding and advertising (please see "The Smurfs"). But WrestleMania? Do kids even watch that anymore? As far as we can tell, it's mostly older meatheads who tune in to see the soap opera theatrics in the "sport" that is more about making speeches these days then actual wrestling. Maybe Scooby and the gang will solve the mystery of why anybody even watches it anymore.

In case you are one of the few that care, Triple H, John Cena, Kane, The Miz, Brodus Clay, Santino Marella, Sin Cara, AJ, and WWE chairman/CEO Vince McMahon (obviously) are lending their voices to this, and appropriately, it will be dumped straight to VOD, DVD and Blu-ray.

    I was advised to check out this site by various people, but I've come to this page and see that the research just isn't there.

    My 3 kids all sit down together and watch WWE, aged 5, 10 and 13, this is a miracle, but shows that it isn't just 'older meatheads' who watch the show.

    This is genius. Pure genius. Perhaps powerful drugs were involved in dreaming this up, but nevertheless, it is inspired. It needs to be live action and released into theaters. It would be a monster hit.

    Wrestling sucks dweebs.

    Extremely condescending and unprofessional article.

    It couldn't be more clear that you're ignorant of what the WWE has become in the past few years. They've slowly moved away from the TV-14 edgy show that was on TV in the late 90s towards a much more family friendly PG product. They're one of the unquestioned leaders when it comes to using social media, and a lot of their shows are tailed to younger children now.

    Maybe you could research before writing your next article.

    A LOT of people watch WWE to this day. Millions in fact. Do some research before you write such patronizing articles.

    Sorry guys. I love this site and have contributed stories towards it, but seriously? Why so judgemental, elitist and patronising? RAW just had it's 1000th episode a few weeks back and draws in all sorts of kids merch with PG-era stars. Personally, the tie-in will work wonders given how hard WWE is pushing social media etc.

    Not like RAW is the longest running episodic TV show on the planet or anything. Way to show your ignorance.

    Uh, the entire WWE product is practically tailored towards kids now, in what's been dubbed the "PG era", and has been for almost a decade. They make up a large majority of the audience and account for millions in merchandising, specifically John Cena merchandise. A little bit of research would tell you this, but you decided to take the condescending prick approach, which is cool, I guess.
