Details on Eight Potential WWE Network Reality Shows Including One with Steve Blackman



- WWE issued a survey earlier today to gauge interest on potential reality shows for the WWE Network. Here are details, courtesy of PWInsider:

* WWE Rescue – a reality show where WWE talents come to the homes of “super fans” to help with their personal and business problems. Described as Restaurant Impossible meets Nanny 911.

* NXT: Behind the Scenes – A reality series following the NXT talents trying to make it out of the Performance Center and to the main roster, looking at their work, their personal lives and the fraternity of the NXT brand, including the heartbreak of being cut.

* WWE Ultimate Challenge- WWE’s version of CBS’ Amazing Race with a 12 hour extreme scavenger hunt in different cities.

* Xtreme WWE Collector – Starring “Super fan” Michael Patterson – WWE’s version of Travel Channel’s Toy Hunter.

* Pros vs. Joes – Similar the old Spike TV series, pitting WWE talents against an average person in physical and non-physical challenges. The non physical challenges listed included an air guitar competition. The physical challenges were described as similar to American Gladiators.

* WWE Around the World – Following WWE stars as they take part in some of the scariest stunts and attractions around the world, such as shark diving and eating strange foods.

* WWE Dirty Jobs – Just like the Discovery Channel reality series of the same name, WWE talents have to perform unpleasant jobs, including going into Chicago sewers and picking up garbage in NYC.

* WWE Prankdown – a practical joke show that features WWE stars pulling tricks on unsuspecting “superfans.” An example was John Cena and Randy Orton both wanting to buy an expensive car and getting into a fight at the dealership, only to show the damage they caused was part of the show to trick the fan.

* Blackman’s Bounties – A reality series with former WWE star and bounty hunter Steve Blackman following his bounty hunting team based out of Harrisburg, PA.

    Soooo basically they have NO original ideas and are going to just copy a bunch of stuff already on TV but put WWE superstars in it…okay…most of them sound like crap to me.

  2. T says:

    I should be a writer for the WWE after seeing ideas like that.

  3. Nick A says:

    I would watch the Steve Blackman show in a second.

  4. aag44 says:

    @Nick A: INDEED.

    WWE Rescue: 2/10> Would be better if it were some FORMER superstars who have made promising careers in the field they are trying to help the average Joe with.

    NXT: Behind the Scenes: 10/10> NXT is the best product that WWE is putting out right now. These guys work hard and it really shows. It would be awesome to see exactly how much effort they put in, and really get the NXT brand out into the public eye. GREAT IDEA.

    WWE Extreme Challenge: 2/10> Amazing Race with WWE superstars? Or produced by WWE? Either way, there is already an Amazing Race on TV… putting Kofi Kingston on a mountain isn’t going to make me more excited about it.

    Xtreme WWE Collector: 1/10> Dumb. plain and simple. Toy Hunter is a fairly new show, and some of the merch shown on that show is O.K. But I wouldn’t wanna see someone’s $20,000 collection of wrestling dolls. Doesn’t sit right right me.

    Pros vs. Joes: 4/10> Not going to lie, I’d probably watch a couple of episodes to see what it would be like, initially. If it’s anything like Hogan hosting American Gladiators, though…

    WWE Around the World: 2/10> Another stupid idea. I can see it now, screeching divas on a roller coaster. SNOOZE

    WWE Dirty Jobs: 6/10> I actually sort of like this idea. Seeing the superstars and divas perform some of the low-rung work that an average person has to would humanize them. Is that a good thing? I guess we’ll find out…

    WWE Prankdown: 0/10> Absolute garbage.

    Blackman’s Bounties: 2/10> Excuse me, I’m not a fan of Steve Blackman. He was boring in the WWE. come at me marks
