a classic has been cancelled by the hands of ruthless executives
18 November 2002 | by DuctTapeMahnSee all my reviews

when i was a kid, i dreamed of being a contender to face the gladiators in 8 rounds of competition. but all i can do is watch reruns on TNN and watch people with mullets and frizzy hair from the early 90's period battle it out. and there is never a dull moment. no show can ever match this one. whats more fun than watching washed up football players giving play by play as gladiator sized men and women stop contenders from earning points which are needed for the all important ...!!ELIMINATOR!!... but why must the good shows be cancelled.
