Scooby Doo! Wrestlemania Mystery (2014)
Thanks to his elite computer gaming skills, Scooby Doo wins an all expenses paid trip to "WWE City", a metropolis entirely given over to all things pre-wrestling, including front row tickets to Wrestlemania. And after a little cajoling, he and Shaggy persuade the entire Mystery Machine gang to take the trip with them.
Of course, faster than you can say "Scooby Snacks", the gang find themselves confronted with a rampaging demonic bear and the fiendish theft of the WWE world championship. Can these two events be connected? (well, duh!) And which of the various WWE superstars will be friends and which will be foes in the quest to find the answers?
WWE Studios doesn't exactly have the greatest reputation as a producer of fine cinema, but this film? This film is an act of genius.
I'm sure most of you right now are giving me (or the screen, anyway) a sceptical look. Perhaps some of you are already phoning the guys in the white jackets to take me to my comfy padded cell. But if it's crazy to love a movie which pits four wrestlers and a talking dog in a steel cage match against a giant demon bear, then quite frankly, I don't want to be sane.
