Longtime wrestling fan Seth Green may not be much of a threat in the ring, but the actor has taken on the sport in a different way — heading up a new adult animated series “Camp WWE.”
Despite years of experience on other cartoon comedies, Green says that “getting to introduce [WWE] characters to a different audience and a new generation in a way they’ve never seen before is a unique kind of privilege for me.”
The show itself centers on a summer camp run by WWE chairman, president and CEO, Vince McMahon, who voices his own character. His daughter, Stephanie McMahon, and star Triple H serve as 15-year-old camp counselors, while “Nature Boy” Ric Flair and Sgt. Slaughter act as camp supervisors.
“Everybody can relate to the concept of being at camp,” Green said of the show’s concept, “and it gives us an age to explore these characters that you’d never get to see.”
As for camp goers, most of whom are current superstars voicing younger versions of themselves, the stacked cast includes: Roman Reigns, Sasha Banks, Kevin Owens, Becky Lynch, Seth Rollins and The Undertaker.
“It’s all pinch-me moments,” Green continued of working with some of the WWE’s finest.
“I just calm myself enough that I can do the job I’ve been brought there to do. When you get the opportunity to work with your heroes, you want to make sure you’re doing your best.”
