No spoilers dont worry
So I picked it up the day it came out. I will say, I am shocked. I was so scared when they announced this movie. But honestly it was not that bad at all! I am not into wrestling so I dont know any of these wrestlers or care for them. But the attention in the movie is all on the gang! There are quite a few cute scooby moments and stuff throughout the movie which made me smile. One part at the start of the movie made me laugh out loud. This movie was honestly no different then any of the other films. So yay good job WB and WWE for pulling this off! lol

I didn't doubt focus wouldn't be on the gang. This one appeared as the one to pay tribute to the New Scooby Movies era. Which holds true in general with references to wrestling (as they are the stars here as much as when other celebrities guest stared references to their acts were found in the episodes) and both scooby and other hb all weaved into the script. And with the pattern of the last several movies i was sure they would be there to be found.
I say longlive this franchise of films, another good entry
I too liked this one even though I have no interest in the wwe. It did very much feel like a tribute to the guest star era, just much better animated So just like I never followed the Harlem globe trotters outside of Scooby-Doo and Futurama, I still found plenty to enjoy without being a fan of the guest (in this case WWE Wrestlers...though I did get a kick out of seeing Sgt Slaughter since I had his GI Joe figure a long time ago)

I liked it too. I got my dvd yesterday. I streamed it a few nights ago. Since it was out digitally early. And i liked. I'm not really a WWE fan, but man i think the movie was pretty great. The animation was sooooooooo much better then Mecha Mutt.

I was shocked. I actually really enjoyed this one. Concept will always remain stupid to me though. I can't say I have high hopes placed in WWE studios, I mean, they are doing a Marine 4 and a Jingle All The Way 2 but they really pulled this one off. I used to be a huge wrestling fan, and I don't know if it has cleaned up (doubt it) but its not the thing I would want younger children watching. That was my biggest complaint with this release, attracting young viewers to the WWE's trashy brand of "entertainment"
Wow, I came into the Wrestlemania Mystery forum looking for a thread that would tell me what people thought of this movie without spoilers, and that’s exactly what I found.
I too have been very skeptical of this one, and haven’t bought it yet because of that. But reading these reviews I’ll pick it up now. I never thought about the “New Movies” connection, but I’ve always been a fan of those so that will be a good way to view this one.
Thanks again for the comments and no spoilers approach.
The concept of it is just ridiculous, so I hope it's really as good as everyone claims it is...
It's adequate, there are some good set-pieces in it and it does come together in the end BUT the storyline is ultimately compromised by the inclusion of sections of WWE oriented content which sucks time from the gang solving the mystery so it all gets a bit deus ex machina at the end to solve the mystery. It's not the worst thing they've done but it's not the best either. If your not sure either wait until it is in the reduced section or you see it on TV.

I don't think it's that ridiculous. Scooby has solved two mysteries at wrestling arenas before and guest stars having been the show's main gimmick for two whole seasons plus others in more recent efforts. So to me it's just bringing old concepts back to the forefront.
On the other point the major counterpoint is that this was a co-production. So the fact they added more things WWE specifically to the movie's format is not surprising. And if you don't like wrestling, those parts probably wear sore on the viewer. As someone that likes both Scooby Doo and wrestling i didn't feel any time was wasted on either. But I see the viewpoint of someone who wouldn't. And at the same time had any past guest stars had sections of their episodes that were geared more to their worlds than just joining Scooby's world, then they'd probably get the same reaction from those that aren't really fans of those respective stars.
