Street Fight At RAW, Gladiators Gone, Tomko, & More News
By Ryan Clark | December 23, 2008
Entertainment news site HollywoodReporter.com is reporting that NBC has cancelled Hulk Hogan's show "American Gladiators" after just 2 seasons. The show did big ratings for season 1 but viewership tanked for the second season. Unlike most reality-style shows, American Gladiators was very expensive to produce.
We reported last week, WWE has released the first batch of downloadable content for the new SmackDown vs. RAW 2009 videogame. Download Pack 1 includes 3 new playable characters (Evan Bourne, Ted DiBiase and Charlie Haas) and new ring attire for Chris Jericho. IGN.com reports that the Playstation 3 version of Download Pack 1 will also include a few exclusives - Holiday costumes for Kelly Kelly and Maria as well as alternate ring attire for Kane, MVP and Edge.
Video has surfaced online of Tyson Tomko's dark match with Paul Burchill prior to last week's Raw. You can see the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qzvTNDi8ss
