In a special WWE edition of TBS’ hit show “Drop the Mic,” Chris Jericho battles boxer Laila Ali and Superstars from the women’s division go toe-to-toe with the cast of Netflix’s hit show “GLOW,” Sunday, June 10, at 10:30/9:30 C on TBS.
According to Forbes.com, WWE will be holding a “For Your Consideration” event in Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 6, as the company seeking to earn an Emmy nomination for its current TV product.
The event will be attended by Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, The Bella Twins, Ronda Rousey, Roman Reigns, The New Day, Charlotte Flair and Braun Strowman, and select members of the media have also been invited.
The event will feature a red carpet ceremony, followed by private screenings of the company’s Raw 25, Mixed Match Challenge and WWE 24: Empowered programs, which have been selected by the company to highlight it’s women’s revolution.
On WWE’s chances of earning an Emmy nomination, The Forbes article speculated the following:
While an Emmy victory, let alone a nomination, remains highly unlikely, WWE’s obvious push to become Emmy material appears to be yet another strategic branding move with an end game of WWE being accepted as a mainstream property.
The report points to the recent mega-deal with FOX as evidence of the company’s evolution of the TV product, and notes Empowered seems to have the best chance of any submission to be considered for an Emmy nod. The “24” series, with its documentary-style format, might be more appealing to critics than the Raw or Smackdown shows, which feature heavy amounts of in-ring wrestling content.
In honor of Red Nose Day, a handful of celebrities are set to take part are in the obstacles. Kristine Leahy announces that each celebrity will go through 6 obstacles. Each obstacle will raise 5k for charity.
WWE Superstar Nikki Bella is up first with Gram McCartney. They make it through the first obstacle. On to the second, she almost loses her footing but makes it. Nikki gets through the third obstacle with Gram ahead of her cheering her on. The crowd chants for her as she begins obstacle four. She loses her grip and falls into the pool.
