Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling features ten celebrities competing against each other for the title of “Celebrity All Star Heavyweight Champion.” The celebrity cast consists of former NBA champion Dennis Rodman, “Bewitched” actress Erin Murphy, Playboy playmate Nikki Ziering, “Different Strokes” actor Todd Bridges, Super Heavyweight boxer ButterBean, reality TV star Trishelle Cannatella, “Saved by the Bell”s Dustin Diamond, actor Frank Stallone, pop sensation Tiffany, and reality TV star and radio host Danny Bonaduce.
Hulk Hogan, World Championship Wrestling President Eric Bischoff and professional wrestling manager Jimmy Hart serve as judges, and they are in charge of deciding who gets eliminated from the competition each week. It was also recently announced that radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge would serve as the show’s play-by-play match announcer.
“Jason and I have been fans of Bubba’s show for a long time” said executive producer Eric Bischoff. “We have been looking forward to working with Bubba, and this is a big opportunity for us to have a great voice, a fan of wrestling and a promotional powerhouse all in one.”
Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling premieres on Saturday, October 18 at 8 PM ET/PT on CMT.
