Does the fact that there is somehow already a Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age Smackdown movie make the existence of Jetsons & WWE: Robo-Wrestlemania more or less baffling? That’s unclear, but from this trailer, what is clear is that this thing is terribly confounding either way.
For those unfamiliar, Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age Smackdown sees the stars of WWE transposed into the world of The Flintstones. John Cena provides the voice for John Cenastone. Vince McMahon becomes Mr. McMagma. It’s as easy to digest as anything else in the Flintstones universe.
Jetsons & WWE is far, far less clean-cut.
The straight-to-video film sees George Jetson for some reason shifted from his office job to some sort of excavation project. While doing that, he unearths professional wrestler Big Show, who was apparently frozen alive in ice sometime in our near future. Big Show, unfazed by this, immediately attempts to return to the WWE, only to find that it’s now an all-robot faux competition. So, his wrestling career gone, he instead becomes a tyrannical dictator of the future. From there, it somehow becomes even more convoluted.
See, separate from the whole totalitarian grappling leader thing, George Jetson possessed a craft capable of time travel. Hypothetically, he could use that to kill baby Hitler. He could use it to kill baby Big Show. He could use it to go back and stop himself from chiseling a 450-pound wrestler from his icy prison. But instead he uses it to bring MORE modern-day wrestlers into the future in the hopes of stopping Big Show’s reign. As far as intergalactic despot-versus-wrestler family comedies go, this is somehow more bizarre than Suburban Commando. And that’s saying something.
