1[[quoteright:284:]] ˛˛''Scooby Doo and the WWE: Curse of the Speed Demon'' is the 25th entry to the WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooDirectToVideoFilmSeries once again co-produced with Creator/WWEStudios, and the second crossover with the WWE after WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWrestlemaniaMystery. Returning wrestlers include Wrestling/VinceMcMahon, Wrestling/TripleH and Wrestling/TheMiz.˛˛Many of the wrestlers are competing in a race known as the MOTO X, where wrestlers in groups of two or three participate in a 3-part race for the grand prize of a $1 million...or that ''would'' be the case if a mysterious racer known as Inferno the Speed Demon isn't trying to destroy the wrestlers for what it's worth. Asked by Vince [=McMahon=] to assist once more and aided by the legendary Phenom himself, Mystery Inc. is on the case.˛˛!!Tropes seen in the film include:˛˛* ALoadOfBull: Los Matodores' car is a bull, of course.˛* AndThisIsFor: Undertaker’s taking down Inferno is for his partner Dusty, who was injured during Inferno’s first appearence.˛* ApologeticAttacker: The flashback of Triple H fighting Inferno in the second part of the race reveals [[spoiler:Stephanie, in disguise, apologizing to her husband before Triple H states just to make it look good.]]˛* BattleStrip: Triple H undresses for battle thrice--two of them are caused just by ''flexing his muscles''!˛* BigBad: The main villain of the movie is the demon racer Inferno, aka [[spoiler:Triple H with help with his wife.]]˛* BigRedButton: Scooby {{Headdesk}}s on a big red button on the dashboard of the truck he, Shaggy, and the Undertaker drive...and it reveals the boosters Fred installed in the truck.˛* BrickJoke: During the second part of the race, Sheamus, who has to deal with ''Stardust and Goldust'' as his partners, asks for the two to disappear (see StealthHiBye for details). After the race ends, the two pop out from behind the car.˛* CallBack: The Miz jogging at night while saying, "Who's Awesome? I'm Awesome!" to himself before the bad guy appears. Only this time, he successfully defends himself.˛* ChekhovsGun: The DC pretzels and the fact they're shaped like Deadman's Curve itself. Shaggy and Scooby have eaten so much of those that they can essentially drive the last part of the race blindfolded.˛* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Goldust and Stardust both have weird habits--but yet they note that Scooby-Doo is the bizarre one! ˛* ColdHam: Undertaker's dialogue has him state many of the lines he uses in his promos with the same gravitas he adds onto them when he's in the ring.˛* TheComicallySerious: The Undertaker, in spades. Nearly every single line he spouts is spoken in the same gravitas he puts in his promos.˛* ContinuityNod: There are several nods to the events of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWrestlemaniaMystery''.˛** The Undertaker notes to Shaggy and Scooby about how they were the ones who defeated the Ghost Bear.˛** Before The Miz beats the hell out of Inferno, he references how he got mauled by the Ghost Bear from the beginning of that movie.˛** Shaggy and Scooby's most popular item in their food truck is the "Skinny Man's Dead Meat Combo", with Skinny Man and Dead Meat being their in-ring names. They even wear their wrestling gear in the final part of the race.˛* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: The Undertaker is the main wrestler focus in this movie.˛** First off, 'Taker is the complete opposite of his brother: Kane only appears at the beginning and end of ''Wrestlemania Mystery'' and has no connection to the Ghost Bear, only fighting with Shaggy and Scooby so he can get a chance to obtain the WWE Championship, and teams up with the other wrestlers to fight the Ghost Bear after he nearly enacts the monster's plans. He also only talks ''twice'' in the film. The Undertaker, however, is much more talkative and friendlier and his goal as to why he wants to win the prize money shows that he's not as selfish or focused on a championship or a victory compared to Kane. ˛** In contrast to Sin Cara, whose motivations against the Ghost Bear was due to his ancestor being the one to fight it in the past, Undertaker has no personal history with the Speed Demon other than to avenge Dusty for getting injured in the race.˛* CoolCar: All of the cars driven by the wrestlers are awesome vehicles.˛* CoolTrain: Lana and Rusev's car, The Moscow Express, is modeled after a train.˛* CoversAlwaysLie: Again, Triple H is shown together with a diva (this one, being Paige). And ''again'', they don't team up together in anyway.˛* {{Crossover}}: The second time Scooby-Doo and the WWE meet. This time we have Wrestling/{{Paige}}, Wrestling/RusevAndLana, Wrestling/{{Sheamus}}, Wrestling/KofiKingston, Wrestling/DustyRhodes (and [[Wrestling/{{Goldust}} his]] [[Wrestling/CodyRhodes sons]]), Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon and Los Matodores.˛* CurbStompBattle: The "fight" between Undertaker and Inferno ends in two strikes with Inferno flat on his ass. For comparison, it took the combined efforts of Scooby, Wrestling/JohnCena, Wrestling/SinCara, Ruben, and Wrestling/{{Kane}} to defeat the Ghost Bear.˛* DarkIsNotEvil: The Undertaker is a WrestlingMonster, the half-brother to Kane, the Phenom who is essentially one of the deadliest wrestlers in all of WWE History, and the first wrestler on this site to have his own ''Nightmare Fuel'' page...and he's shown to be more down-to-earth than Kane, giving respect to Shaggy and Scooby for their defeat against the Ghost Bear and even teams up with Mystery Inc. to fight off Inferno. He also likes puppets.˛* DeadpanSnarker: Paige's dialogue is essentially this, most of it aimed toward her partner Miz. Lampshaded of course.˛-->'''Paige:''' Don't worry, I wouldn't want anything to happen to my ''best friend''.\˛'''The Miz:''' Thanks, Paige. Wait...[[LampshadeHanging was that sarcasm?]]˛* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler:Subverted; Vince does not let Stephanie off the hook for causing trouble for the MOTO X just because she's his daughter and has her arrested. And then he tells Velma that he'll have their lawyers figure things out in 24 hours.]]˛* EnemyMine: In the final leg of the race, all of the racers decide to tag team against Inferno.˛* FaceHeelTurn: A literal example, given that the gang is interacting with professional wrestlers. [[spoiler:Triple H was an ally in ''Wrestlemania Mystery'', but is one of the culprits here.]]˛* FiveSecondForeshadowing: When Vince learns that his daughter is competing in the race, he states that it's not possible since she's busy running WWE and all. Cue Triple H's theme and an Instant Replay of the race, showing that she and her husband are in said race.˛* FoodFight: A food fight happens in the concession stand after Paige has had enough of Miz talking about himself.˛* FriendToAllChildren: The reason why Undertaker is participating in the first place is that he wants to use half of the money to create something for his fans (many of them kids). ˛* GreekChorus: Dusty Rhodes provides commentary about the fighting going on between the wrestlers.˛* HeroesPreferSwords: Sheamus carries a broadsword on him for some odd reason, which he uses on Inferno in the final part. The Celtic Crusader is also modeled after a sword.˛* HiddenDepths: Undertaker, apparently, is into puppets. Neither Shaggy nor Scooby have any comment on this.˛* InevitableWaterfall: The second part of the race has Undertaker, Shaggy and Scooby almost fall over a waterfall.˛* ItsAllAboutMe: The Miz, as usual, is pretty self-centered. Paige is absolutely aggravated about this, being his partner and all.˛* MythologyGag: ˛** Kofi's commentary on the final leg of the race that it's a [[Wrestling/TheNewDay new day]] with the Authority taking the lead.˛** Paige shouts "This is my house!" in the final leg before charging her and Miz's car at Inferno.˛* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Inferno, the Speed Demon. Sounds nice, doesn't it?˛* PassThePopcorn: Los Matadores sit back and watch everyone fight it out during the FoodFight above.˛* PreAssKickingOneLiner: The Miz to Inferno.˛-->'''The Miz:''' Strangely enough, I've been monster mauled in a midnight jog before. But this time, ''I'm'' doing the mauling.˛* RealMenWearPink: Undertaker expresses his plans for the prize money to make something that he calls "Undertaker's Puppet Jubilee". Shaggy and Scooby have no idea what to say.˛-->'''Undertaker:''' I like puppets.˛* RedEyesTakeWarning: Inferno has glowing red eyes. Subverted with Stardust; he's more kooky then threatening.˛* ScarfOfAsskicking: Inferno wears a white scarf and is shown to be quite ruthless when racing.˛* ScaryScorpions: Inferno's car is modeled after a scorpion.˛* SmokeOut: Inferno uses smoke to cover up his escape after Miz places him in the figure-four leg lock.˛* StealthHiBye: In the second part of the race, Goldust and Stardust somehow vanish swiftly ''in a moving car'' after Sheamus asks the two to disappear.˛* ThemeMusicPowerUp:˛** "I Came To Play" starts playing during Miz's fight with Inferno.˛** The famous gong starts playing as the Undertaker lays the final smackdown on Inferno.˛* TookALevelInBadass: The Miz is able to kick the ass of the MonsterOfTheWeek, even placing Inferno in ''the figure-four leg lock''. [[spoiler: Once you know who Inferno really is, this goes double.]]˛* UnderdogsNeverLose: The Undertaker, Shaggy and Scooby are dead last in the race, but the combined effort of everyone else helps them win the final part. This is even lampshaded with the idea of them being called: "Team Underdog".˛* UnexpectedCharacter: Raise your hands if you thought you'd see a second Scooby-Doo/WWE crossover that had Paige, Goldust, Stardust, Los Matadores, Kofi Kingston and Rusev in it.
