Hulk's new show a battle of celeb freakazoids

September

And you thought Bubba the Love Sponge Clem was the biggest knucklehead involved with Hulk Hogan's new celebrity wrestling competition?Hogancelebwrestlingcast1_3

Turns out, Clem's work as play by play announcer may be the least colorful aspect of CMT's Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling, following the announcement of a cast that reads like a who's who of celebrity dysfunction:

There's tattooed and bejeweled NBA freakazoid Dennis Rodman; ex-Saved by the Bell and sex tape star Dustin Diamond, Diff'rent Strokes actor and ex-addict Todd Bridges; Partridge Family star and police magnet Danny Bonaduce; faded '80s pop star Tiffany; celebrity brother Frank Stallone; Playboy playmate Nikki Ziering; Bewitched actor Erin Murphy; heavyweight boxer ButterBean; and perpetual reality TV participant Trishelle Cannatella.

The celebs will be split into two teams and coached by ex-pros Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake and Brian "Nasty Boy" Nobs. They learn three new moves each week, culminating with a match and an ejection after the match ends.

The whole celebrity-crazed, steroid-fueled craziness hits TV screen Oct. 18 on CMT. I feel my IQ points dropping even as I type these words about it.
