American Gladiators around the globe

posted by Adam Lisagor   Dec 05, 2007

You may have heard that NBC has revived the American Gladiators franchise for primetime. I had tickets reserved for tonight’s taping that definitely would have been used if if I’d been able to reconcile my preteen nostalgia with the potentially many hours of sitting in a studio and cheering on cue.

Instead, I set out to learn the Gladiator names of other American Gladiators around the world.

If you were to pit Gladiator teams from around the world against each other in one arena, make it part of the penal system and introduce a fat, homicidal tenor named Dynamo to the fray, now that’s a taping I would go to.
