I just learned that Nick Aldis and Mason Ryan were part of the 2008 British revival of “Gladiators”. They were known as “Oblivion” and “Goliath”, respectively.
Also, with WWE and MGM recently announcing that they're working on their own “American Gladiators” reboot, do you think we'll see any wrestlers as Gladiators? I actually doubt that that would happen, as I can't see WWE wanting to jeopardize the health of their performers in a non-wrestling environment, but there are definitely a few names that instantly spring to mind: Chad Gable, Bianca Belair, Montez Ford, Julius Creed, Ronda Rousey, Shayna Baszler, Logan Paul, a big guy like Dijak or Dabba-Kato, a small/fast guy like Ricochet or Scrypts… and of course, the Viking Space Lord himself. I don't care if he's in his mid-40's, I want to see a contestant try to knock Brock off of a pedestal with a giant Q-Tip. Or push Bobby Lashley out of the “Conquer” ring. Hell, Tyler Bate constantly embarrassing people twice his size could end-up making him a bigger star than wrestling would.
Wasn't that American Warriors thing basically just a reboot of the Gladiators as it is? And then the one that the Rock did?
