HOLLYWOOD, California – As I continue my journey through the WWE network finding shows to watch, other than just the pay per views. I have found several gems, such as Camp WWE, Table for 3 and WWE Legends House. ( see prior blogs)
Thus far, I have not been disappointed as those 3 were all great ORIGINAL programming that broke down the fourth wall and let us truly see the actual side of the men and women behind the performance. Well, with the exception of CAMP WWE, that is pure comedic genius!
My journey has reached it’s first stumbling block however, as I have come across “Jerry Springer Too hot for TV”, WWE Version. While it surely doesn’t lack in overall content, it greatly lacks in original content, as there is none.
It is all stuff you can find on any one of numerous best of DVD’s, and even a few career retrospective DVD’s. Sure, it funny, sexy and keeps you watching. But so much of it, if not all of it, is stuff we have already seen a million times.
So, it is good for nostalgia, but not much past that. I give the series 2 out of 5 Bodyslams. I’m not surprised why there was only one season of this show.
For the breakdown of the one and thus far, only season, see below.
