Edge and Christian were one of the most exciting and unpredictable tag teams in WWE history. Now they host their own show that features all the offbeat shenanigans fans became familiar with during their time in the squared circle.
13 contestants live and train in the field of professional wrestling together, with one male and one female winner getting contracts with the World Wrestling Federation. The trainers are WWF wrestlers Tazz, Al Snow, Tori and Jacqueline.Written by
The show came about as a deal WWE made with MTV in early 2000 which was to include: weekly live broadcast of Sunday Night Heat; a reality show contest of pro-wrestling where two winners earn a contract; a fictional narrative movie or TV-movie to star Stone Cold Steve Austin. MTV execs wanted Stone Cold Steve Austin to be the head trainer, but being a main event wrestler on WWE Raw and Smackdown! at the time would not allow him to be a head trainer (although he would some years later be head trainer/host in the rebooted version of Tough Enough for the USA network). The movie starring Stone Cold was developed and scripted as The Marine, but scheduling conflicts and shift in budget priorities did not allow the project to come to fruition. WWE later used the script The Marine to launch their movie studio company (WWE Films) and changed the lead to be John Cena. See more »
I have been watching this show from the start. First I was reluctant to see how the show would go, but after the first show, I was hooked.
With the 13 contestants trying to win a WWF contract and real WWF wrestlers either teaching the contestants or other big name WWF stars stopping in for pep talks and the occasional "reality check" is a very good mix for the show.
For any wrestling fan, I suggest watching this show, because it shows the type of expectations they require their [the WWF's] wrestlers to go through. It is a nice behind the scenes mix of the WWF.
