Animated clay figures Johnny Gomez and Nick Diamond host this show, which features a series of no holds barred, to-the-death wrestling matches between animated celebrities. Past matches include Marilyn Manson vs. Charles Manson, The Three Tenors vs. the Three Stooges, Howard Stern vs. Kathy Lee Gifford, and Mary-Kate vs. Ashley. The referee for each match is the unflappable Judge Mills Lane. Written by
Most of the episodes were just about the fighters and their matches, however one short-lived story arc revolved around the mustachioed announcer Nick Diamond. He was injured when the announcer's tower collapsed (after Roger Ebert was flung into it during a match) and he was hospitalized. In the episodes that followed, he was shown in the hospital, and one of the matches featured was a "dream match" of his with Elvis fighting Jerry Garcia. The "Nick Diamond getting injured" character arc was one of, if not the only, character arc on the show. See more »

[Axl Rose pulls out a sharp object from under his kilt]
Nick, what the hell is this psycho doing?
[Celtic music played in background]
Ancient Scottish soldiers wearing kilts such as Axl's always carried a dagger strapped to their ankle. Tradition has it that once a soldier removes it from its scabbard, he can't put it back without drawing blood... even if it's his own.
It's scissors, Nick.
[Celtic music abruptly stops]
Oh... uh, that must be a different tradition.

CELEBRITY DEATHMATCH is full of entertainment. Even though 3 celebrities (the 3 losers) are mocked each week, but still, its done in a fashion that makes the scenes memorable and entertaining (Clay). The best fight in my personal opinion is the one with John Travolta versus Nicholas Cage in the Face/off action. That one was funny, entertaining, and like any other deathmatches, gory. Most of the fights are either very bloody or gory, but they're all presented in comical action. That really is what made the show so great, and I just can't deny it.
