It took long enough. The WWE Network has changed the way wrestling fans can watch the sport that they love. Never before has there been a way to see so much top level wrestling content for such a cheap price and certainly not something that has been officially issued by a wrestling company itself. There is so much content available on the service and now we are getting something else, albeit with a very different tone.
Over the last few years, there are very few people who have found another stage of their career like R-Truth. After changing his style from serious to a complete goof who is often completely confused by almost anything, R-Truth has become a completely different character. It has opened a new set of doors for him in wrestling, and now it is getting him another gig in WWE.
The WWE Network Twitter account has announced that R-Truth’s new game show, officially titled R-Truth’s Game Show, will be debuting next Tuesday. The show was originally confirmed more than a year ago but never aired for reasons that are not clear. A trailer for the show was officially released last month and shows R-Truth having other wrestlers perform tasks and answer trivia questions.

This could be a lot of fun. Check out a trailer for the series and some of R-Truth’s funnier moments:
Opinion: I mean, why not? R-Truth has been the kind of person who is always good for a laugh and while that might not be something that works in a more structured format, WWE would be insane to not give it a try. See what you have with him and maybe you could have something fun. If nothing else, it can be the latest entry on a long list of WWE Network shows that were good for some laughs and then went nowhere.
