What's a WWE superstar to do if you've just awakened from being frozen in ice for a hundred years? If you're Paul Wight, aka the Big Show, you head to the Orbit City Arena and try to join the WWE -- World Wrobot Entertainment, that is. (The W in 'Wrobot" is silent.) When that doesn't work -- in the future, only robots are pro wrestlers -- Big Show takes the logical next step and attempts to take over the world.
That's pretty much the plot of the latest animated feature to combine the worlds of Hanna-Barbera with the WWE. The first trailer for "The Jetsons and WWE: Robo-Wrestlemania" lays out exactly how Big Show's dreams of being WWE World Heavyweight Champion morph into plans for world domination, and how George, Mary, Astro and the rest of the Jetson clan plan to stop him. (SPOILER ALERT: It involves time travel.)
As with previous WWE/Hanna-Barbera animated films, "The Jetsons and WWE: Robo-Wrestlemania" features a voice cast comprised of a number of WWE superstars. This time around, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Alicia Fox, the Usos, Sheamus and, yes, the Big Show all voice their own characters.
Previous WWE/Hanna-Barbera collaborations invvolved teaming Scooby Doo and Mystery Inc. with Vince McMahon's WWE wrestlers, as well as a prehistoric smackdown with the Flintstones.
"The Jetsons are such beloved characters by audiences of all ages and it was an ideal opportunity to pair them with our animated WWE Superstars and work together again with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment," Michael Luisi, President of WWE Studios said in a statement. “Leading up to WrestleMania 33, our fans will have the chance to enjoy this brand-new adventure and see their favorite WWE Superstars in a whole new way."
