ESPN 30 for 30, which airs on ESPN and streams on ESPN+ will be releasing a new episode dedicated to the 1990’s Saturday morning competition show, American Gladiators. The weekly show featured buff men and women taking on competitors from multiple walks of life in athletic competitions ranging from old military training exercises to dodging high speed tennis balls.
“We’re very excited to finally get this story out into the world, and you can trust that it’ll take you to some weird places,” said director, Ben Berman. “Come for the 90’s nostalgia, but stay for the Elvis impersonators, the burps, the mental torment, the murder plots, aliens, and of course the undeniable atrocity of America’s dark history. And sports. It’s got some sports too.”
