    Your confusing him with Justice - he's the black dude with the hair that comes to a point. He's 6'8", 290. Mayhem has the long dreads and he's 6'5", 230.

    Hellga is 6'1" 205. That's one big bitch.

    I watched it again Monday. It wasn't so bad but I liked the older show better. But hey I'm the guy who thinks wrestling in the 80s was better than today's so...

    Yeah, Hellga is gigantic, but looks like he has the athleticism of a drunken monkey.

    I think he was definitely talking about Mayhem the whole time, just got his height and weight wrong. I think that all Justice and Hellga did the whole time was the last leg of the Gauntlet.

    I'm not up on their names yet, it'll be awhile before they're as well known as Laser and Gemini.

    A big, athletic college wrestler would own their Gladiators.
    Even though it's pretty good entertainment, I also think it's cheesey. My boy's like watching it, so that means I am too.

    I would think most middle weight and up college wrestlers would way out slick those big dudes and put em down.

    all I can think of when I hear "American Gladiators" is that episode of the Ellen sitcom when she went on it and went on a date with Nitro...

    Hopefully you're the only one on this board who hears "American Gladiators" and immediately thinks of Ellen. =)

    I know. And I really can't think of any defense.

    That's the only episode of Ellen that I remember. It just stuck out to me because I always watched Gladiators so I thought it was funny when Nitro was on Ellen's show. *shrug*

    Saw some of it and I agree with others that the cheesy factor is high. Almost high enough to make it a good bad show, but not quite. Does Hogan have some creative control over production? Sure seems that way. I may be old school, but I think the old one was better.

    Fave quote from the first night: after a contestant takes a head blow from Justice and is stopped cold in (I think) gauntlet: "And justice was served facially". There's not enough space here for the comeback/punch lines to that one.
