Awesome.
22 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

This was the highlight of my teenaged years. To sit down on a Saturday morning and watch American Gladiators. My favorite gladiators were Blaze, Siren and Nitro. I liked Siren because she never let her disability get in the way of becoming a gladiator. She seems normal in every way except for the fact that she can't hear but she could use her other senses , sight; taste and smell, and that's something that I really admire her for. I like Blaze because she's a very strong woman, and she doesn't take any crap from anybody. I thought Nitro was a BABE! Hubba! Hubba! A teenaged girl's delight. :)
