‘American Gladiators’ Getting A ’30 For 30′ Documentary

The story of American Gladiators will be told in a new 30 For 30 documentary from ESPN.

The doc will focus on the 90’s classic, which pitted real-life contestants against musclebound ‘Gladiators’ with names like Nitro, Zap, and Malibu.

Many former Gladiators will appear in the film, as will co-creator Johnny Ferraro, known as the ‘godfather of reality television.

Did you watch American Gladiators back in the day? What are some ways it influenced modern sports television?
