16 Times Comics and Cartoon Characters Got Into Wrestling

Comedy Central

Pro wrestling is in many ways a human cartoon or comic book. Pro wrestlers are larger than life characters, feeding into a never-ending drama, getting into soap operatic feuds, and fighting with moves and powers that aren’t typically seen in regular, day-to-day combat. It’s not unlike the stories read in comics or seen on animated shows on the screen. So it just makes sense that several cartoons and comic stories would have some pro wrestling mixed in every once and a while.

Several of your favorite superheroes have collided with competitors in the wrestling ring in the pages of your favorite comic book. Many of your favorite cartoon characters have wrestled in an episode or have chatted it up with a famous guest celebrity wrestling star. It’s created a lot of entertaining scenarios over the years.

Here are just a handful of times in which your favorite characters from comic books and animated shows have dipped their toes into the squared circle.
