WWE / Jetsons

WWE announced their latest crossover cartoon with The Jetsons & WWE: Robo-Wrestlemania, available on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 on Digital HD and on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 on DVD.

From the trailer, it looks like Big Show ends up cryogenically frozen, and when he wakes up 100 years in the future, he decides to take over the world with an army of robot wrestlers at his command; another Big Show heel turn.  So the Jetsons head back to 2016 to bring superstars to stop him, including Alicia Fox, Sheamus, Seth Rollins, the Usos, and Roman Reigns.  

Here is the trailer..

Commentary: To be honest, I've never been able to figure out who the audience is on these direct-to-DVD WWE movies, like WWE meets the Flintstones and WWE meets Scooby Doo. My kids are wrestling fans, but they have no connection at all to The Flintstones and The Jetsons. (They do like Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated, but even that is a few years old.)

Why not have WWE team up with some shows that are actually relavant to kids today?  They can't even grab adult viewers like me with the nostalgia factor, because these movies just look unwatchably ridiculous.  And this is coming from someone who loves Uncle Grandpa and Teen Titans Go.  But they keep doing them, so that means someone must be buying them...right?
