    Eight Reality Series WWE is considering for the WWE Network

    Post by Spudz on Thu Mar 20, 2014 6:23 pm

    from pwinsider
    WWE sent out a survey earlier today to certain fans on their mailing list, gauging their interest on potential reality-style shows for the WWE Network. Those who answered were asked about their interest in the different shows, which was most interesting to them and whether the shows would make them want to subscribe to the WWE Network.

    Here are the shows and the basic pitches that WWE's survey featured. The synopsis is something I wrote, not the official WWE verbiage.

    *Blackman's Bounties - Former WWE star and legit badass Steve Blackman reality series following his bounty hunting team based out of Harrisburg, PA. Think Dog the Bounty Hunter.

    *NXT: Behind the Scenes - A reality series following the talents trying to make it out of the Performance Center and to the main roster, looking at their work, their personal lives and the fraternity of the NXT brand, including the heartbreak of being cut. So, it's Tough Enough-esque.

    *Pros vs. Joes - Pretty much the same as the old SpikeTV series, pitting WWE talents against an average person in physical and non physical challenges. The non physical challenges listed included an air guitar competition. The physical challenges were described as similar to American Gladiators.

    *WWE Around the World - Following WWE talents taking part in some of the scariest stunts and attractions around the world, such as shark diving and eating strange foods. It read as if it was modeled after some of the Travel Channel's "Extreme" specials with a dash of Anthony Bordain's No Reservations.

    *WWE Dirty Jobs - Just like the Discovery Channel reality series of the same name, WWE talents have to perform unpleasant jobs, including going into Chicago sewers and picking up garbage in NYC.

    *WWE Prankdown - a practical joke show that features WWE talents pulling tricks on unsuspecting "Superfans." The example given was John Cena and Randy Orton both wanting to buy an expensive car and getting into a fight at the dealership, only to show the damage they caused was part of the show to trick the fan.

    *WWE Rescue - a reality show where WWE talents come to the homes of "super fans" help them with their personal and business problems. Think Restaurant Impossible meets Nanny 911.

    *WWE Ultimate Challenge- WWE's version of CBS' Amazing Race with a 12 hour extreme scavenger hunt in different cities.

    *Xtreme WWE Collector - Starring "Super fan Michael Patterson" - basically a WWE version of Travel Channel's Toy Hunter, except Patterson is chasing WWE toys and memorabilia.

    I would watch all of these shows. Maybe not Pros vs. Joes, but everything else? Gold.

    The networks is really starting to flesh out the total media machine the WWE is set to become and fast.

    That said, none of this is interesting to me.

    Eh, Blackman's Bounties and NXT: Behind the Scenes sound interesting to me, not so much for the rest. Unless maybe it's Zack Ryder and JTG starring in WWE Dirty Jobs.

    I'm really interested in WWE Rescue, because that just sounds absurd. What advice could Curt Hawkins have for small businesses?

    OH maybe JBL will do it an be off commentary for a few months. EVERYONE WINS!

    All of them probably would be fun atleast on a limited run basis but the 4 that has more miles to to me would be
    *NXT: Behind the Scenes
    *Blackman's Bounties
    *WWE Rescue
    *Xtreme WWE Collector

    Why did they not launch the network with Blackman's Bounties? And why is this even up for discussion, start filming now!

    I would so watch Blackman's Bounties. Maybe NXT behind the Scenes. I'd really like to see a training and Nutrition show from the WWE.

    I'd actually like to see all of these. And in lines with the training/nutrition idea, maybe give DDP his own show where they follow him in helping people improve their lives with his yoga. I'd actually love something like that.

    I like that one. Tho I would like to see different perspectives. A different Super Star each week, what they do to workout and train, how they diet. Any special products or recipes they use... ECT.

    taken from lordsofpain.net
    - As noted, WWE issued a survey this week to gauge interest on several potential WWE Network reality shows. One was Blackman's Bounties, starring former WWE star Steve Blackman. A teaser reel is above and it's certainly not PG. The video above does contain graphic language. It would likely have to be toned down if WWE picks it up. This reel was actually done back in 2012.

    The synopsis reads like this:

    "Eyelash Vizion's presents Blackman's Bounties a original series starring former WWF wrestling superstar Steve BlackMan & Will Traynham. Watch as the duo travel around the country on recovery missions hunting down suspects who flee bail."

    Not only do I want them to make that show, but I want them to send random wrestlers along each week to ride along with Blackman. Imagine Yoshi Tatsu kicking the bejesus out of someone and taking out all his pent up aggression over his years of poor booking on them.
