The Junkyard 500 was the first episode of Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n' Wrestling.


At the Junkyard, Junkyard Dog and Tito Santana see a newspaper article for a movie producer to buy a car for his newest monster movie, Santana and JYD drive to the film set to find the movie producer and audition JYD's Junk Wagon, when Roddy Piper and Big John Studd arrive to audition Piper's Hot Rod. When Piper and JYD can't agree on which car to audition, the movie producer suggests they have a race. During the race, Piper and Studd play dirty and cheat whereas Santana and Junkyard play fair. Despite playing by the rules, when JYD stops the car to prevent hitting a puppy, Piper drives past and wins the race, allowing the Hot Rod to be used in the movie. It turns out that JYD dodged a bullet when the car used had to be smashed in the scene being recorded. JYD signs off saying "Another one bites the dust".
