Laila Ali, World Super Middleweight Boxing Champion, will be hosting NBC’s “American Gladiators.”
Laila’s excited to work with wrestling icon Hulk Hogan. “It’s an honor to be reintroducing this American classic to a new generation of fans,” Ali gushed. From 1989 to 1997, the show had audiences riveted with segments like The Human Canonball or The Joust.
Whether the old formula will still get ratings with a new generation of TV viewers remains to be seen — and may be one of the biggest battles of all.
