This should be a trainwreck of EPIC proportions.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/television/news/e3i9fd76a66aebe6d4c6857e0f14bac32e7

CMT is getting in the wrestling ring with Hulk Hogan.

The network has ordered eight episodes of the competition series "Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling" for a fall debut.

The series will feature 10 celebrities competing for the title of "Celebrity All-Star Wrestling Champion" through challenges and elimination matches. Two former pro wrestlers will train the contestants, with Hogan and former World Championship Wrestling president Eric Bischoff serving as judges. A third judge along with the competitors and trainers will be announced later.

Hogan is credited as creator and executive producer of the series with Bischoff and Jason Hervey of Bischoff-Hervey Entertainment.

Hogan said he's looking "to shake things up" in terms of sports entertainment with "something different and more contemporary."

I'm insanely curious about who the trainers will be.

Knobbs and Ed Leslie?

I want it to be Sarge from the old Powerplant days - he was on that Southern Cops tag team - can't recall his name

And you gotta figure Ed Leslie makes it - Knobs is in bad shape.

Maybe newer guys too - Buff Bagwell, maybe?



We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker? I only know him because he was a playable character in WCW Mayhem on the N64, which was the only wrestling game I had because I got it for free.

Well, when I saw Ed Leslie a few months beack, he was in terrific shape. I am sure he'd be up to it.

So no celebrities are signed up yet. If they bring in Savage and Warrior, that old Dingbat, to teach dueling promos, I'd watch. As for the 3rd judge, give me Lee Marshall or give me, well not death but, give me Lee Marshall.

This can only lead to one thing. Wrestlemania XXV - Trishelle vs. The Miz

She needs another overexposed untalented loser to latch onto after that whole Dr. Steve-O thing shockingly didn't pan out.

This sounds horrifically like the abortion that was Celebrity Wrestling on ITV1 over here in Britain. Two trainers (D-Lo Brown and Joe E. Legend) and guest presenter Rowdy Roddy Piper who served no purpose other than to weakly flirt with the female presenter and shout BRING! IT! ON! whilst pointing in several different directions.

It was on prime-time on Saturdays for about 3 weeks before they realised the only people who were actually watching it were people with severe psychological disorders and the "celebrities" themselves and got bumped to a Sunday morning slot. Seriously, it seems like there isn't a horrible celebrity reality show that Lee Sharpe won't do. Have some pride, for God's sake, you won league championships...

Yeah, I should point out that this was between '04 and '05, can't remember the exact time, so it's not even a NEW idea, let alone a good one.

Another thing to mention is that THEY WEREN'T ACTUALLY WRESTLING. They were seperated into two teams, and one member of each team competed in American Gladiator-style games. It was fucking awful. Oh, and they all had "wrestling" nicknames, that were hilarious.

THE TEAMS:

The Crusaders - D-Lo Brown's team

Jeff "Pocket Rocket" Brazier - famous for being on reality shows and fathering Jade Goody's children. No, seriously.
Tiffany "Princess of Power" Chapman - was in Brookside, a Liverpool-based soap opera.
Leilani "The Vixen" Dowding - Page 3 girl, WAG
Mikey "Wild Boy" Green - was in a boy band no-one's heard of.
Michelle "Inferno" Heaton - was in a girl band.
James "Gentleman Jim" Hewitt - famous for shagging Princess Diana for a few years while Charles was off with Camilla. Rumoured to be Prince Harry's real biological father.
Jenny "The Avenger" Powell - TV presenter
Lee "Sharpe Shooter" Sharpe - Former footballer
Scott "Snake Eyes" Wright - Soap actor

The Warriors - Joe E. Legend's team

Marc "El Diablo" Bannerman - Soap actor
Annabel "Solitaire" Croft - Former tennis player
Kate "The Brawler" Lawler - Won Big Brother
Shauna "Tigress" Lowry - TV presenter
Victoria "Ice Maiden" Silvstedt - Supermodel. Possibly the only one of the lot that you could actually call a celebrity.
Oliver "Rebel Rider" Skeete - Champion showjumper
Iwan "The Dragon" Thomas - Olympic silver medallist in the 4x400m relay
Phil "The Handy Man" Turner - DIY expert and presenter
Mark "The Quickdraw Kid" Speight - Childrens' TV presenter. Recently committed suicide.

I don't even know who half of these people are, I'm from the same country as them...

I'll watch it to see if it tops the Uncle Elmer wedding in terms of stupidity. Plus, I really believe they finally will turn it into an incest angle, thus sinking further into depravity.
