Ripped from KFR - Reality Retreads Highlight Celebrity Championship Wrestling

Sorry for the late post and somewhat dated news but work had a major power outage for the majority of my workday which means no access to the Internets. So, please sit back and enjoy this edition of Ripped from KFR...

Dancing with the Stars too high-brow for you? Celebrity Circus seems too stuffy for your tastes? Do you miss the shock and awe of Celebrity Boxing mixed with the hilarity of MTV’s Tough Enough? Well, according to The Hollywood Reporter, CMT has the cure for your ills this fall with the announcement of Celebrity Championship Wrestling.

Reality D-listers Dennis Rodman, Dustin Diamond, Danny Bonaduce, Todd Bridges, Nikki Ziering, Tiffany, and queen reality show whore Trishelle Cannatella all return to the glow of the small screen for the lure of more money and ever-diminishing dignity. Other cast members include Butterbean, Jackie Stallone’s other kid and Bewitched’s Tabitha Stephens.

The show uses the ever-popular 3 judges scoring format with Hulk Hogan, Jimmy “The Mouth of the South” Hart and Eric Bischoff in those roles with Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake and Nasty Boy Brian Knobbs coaching up the wrestling dummies “celebrities”. And as much as I bad-mouth this show, I have a feeling that a season pass will find its way to the old TiVo. I blame it on brainwashing here in the Redneck Riviera.
