Scooby-Doo and WWE? Why not?

Today in bizarre marriages: A forthcoming film will feature Scooby-Doo and his semi-trusty colleagues, as they chase down leads at ... WrestleMania.

The Scooby-Doo, WWE collaboration will be an animated feature. Warner Bros. is the studio behind the project, and The Playlist offers the following plot summary: "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."

Deadline.com reports the following WWE talent is on board: Triple H, John Cena, Kane, The Miz, Brodus Clay, Santino Marella, Sin Cara, AJ and WWE CEO Vince McMahon.

The unexpected news struck some as a bit odd, and had at least one fan wondering if this meant the WWE was betting all of its chips on family audiences. A contributor to Yahoo! Sports had this to say: "Just like my parents, I now believe that everything from the past is better than everything is today. The clearest example of this is the WWE."

In the article, Patrick Michael delineates how WWE had once invested heavily in the Attitude Era, a time when WWE matches were more violent, with shows more adult-themed. Apparently the arrival of Shaggy and Scooby at the league's premier event is the final nail in the coffin of the Attitude Era.

The last time a Scooby-Doo film made it to theaters was 2002, when Matthew Lillard, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar teamed up.
