Hulk Hogan hosting celebrity wrestling show

Tbdhulkhogan060908 While Hulk Hogan tries his best to get son Nick a new reality show about being a jailbird, he’s killing time with a new series for CMT: Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling. Close your eyes and shake your head all you want, it’s happening.

Danny Bonaduce, Dennis Rodman and Dustin Diamond are on the roster to pummel one another in an eight-episode run this fall, the Hollywood Reporter says. We’ve seen Screech box before, so we know he can do that, but he’ll be going up against folks like Frank Stallone, boxer ButterBean and Todd Bridges, who ain’t no joke when it comes to the savage violence. There’s women, too, got to have those: The Real World’s Trishelle Cannatella, Bewitched’s Erin Murphy, Playboy playmate Nikki Ziering and yes, Tiffany.

The gang will compete for the title of Celebrity All-Star Wrestling Champion by taking on challenges like using wrestling moves, talking trash and working an audience. If they could do all that, they wouldn’t need to be on a Z-list reality show now, would they?
