Tuesday Night Titans Returning?
Several months back it was revealed that WWE were considering bringing back Tuesday Night Titans to the Network, a late night talk show WWE aired in the 80s featuring Supertsars. The Spec via BANG Showbiz reports that now both Dolph Ziggler and Renee Young have been pitching a similar concept.
“Someone who I really like working with at the WWE is Renee Young. We’ve actually pitched a couple different ideas for the Network to possibly have a late night talk show,” says Ziggler.
“It would be great to be something along the lines of a Comedy Central show meets a late night talk show. Just something where we can have fun and use our improvisation skills and our training, and have a blast. I think we could start a great, entertaining show. The two of us have dabbled in stand up; we’ve dabbled in entertainment, in movies. We’re just hard working people that constantly want to entertain, that bring a different facet, and show these different views of that we’re not just guys who run around the ring, fall down and bump into each other. She’s someone who is really great and I’m a big fan of hers. We get on well.”
