American Sit-Com Wannabee!
This show lasted about a season on Canadian TV. It featured ex-football pro Lyle Alzado trying to raise two teenage kids while balancing his career as an educator and moonlighting as a pro-wrestler. It seemed determined to be as zany as many of the sitcoms on American TV but the comedy of Learning the Ropes was almost always sub-par and it failed to attract much of an audience. One of the teenage kids was played by "Stephanie McKay" from Degrassi Junior High, who left Degrassi for this. It was not a great career decision. Alzado looked to be in good shape when on camera. Sad to say, he would die of cancer just a few years later, which he said was due to his steroid use.
