Stephen Thomas Erlewine of music website AllMusic categorised WWF Aggression in hip hop genres such as hardcore hip hop and gangsta rap, describing it as "straight-ahead hardcore rap, targeted at WWF's audience."[1] Six of the album's 13 tracks were produced by Binky of West Coast hip hop duo Allfrumtha I, with other producers including Jam Master Jay and Rockwilder.[2]



WWF Aggression was a commercial success. In the US, the album reached number eight on the US Billboard 200 and number ten on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart; in Canada, it reached number six on the Canadian Albums Chart.[3] It was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, indicating sales of over 500,000 units,[4] and was also certified gold by Music Canada and silver by the British Phonographic Industry.[5][6]


Music website AllMusic awarded the album three out of five stars. Writer Stephen Thomas Erlewine proposed that "since [the album] is targeted at [WWF's] male adolescent audience, it's just thuggish without being particularly inventive."[1] He highlighted the track "Wreck" by Kool Keith and Ol' Dirty Bastard, but also claimed that it "doesn't really live up to expectations."[1] Describing the material as "blunt hip-hop that isn't as brutal as it appears," Erlewine concluded that the album "will only be of interest to wrestling fans, not to hip-hop fanatics."[1]
