What is….going on here? There are very few television events that seem to capture America’s attention but James Holzhauer’s run on Jeopardy seemed to do just that. While he has since lost, fans paid a lot of attention to him over the last two months as he rewrote the Jeopardy record books with a level of dominance not seen in several years. This gives him a new celebrity status, and now he might be cashing in on that a bit.
According to an interview with ESPN.com, he may be interested in appearing on Monday Night Raw. Holzhauer was asked about appearing on other game shows but said that couldn’t happen Jeopardy owned his game show rights for the time being. However, Jeopardy would be ok with him appearing on American Ninja Warrior or Monday Night Raw. Holzhauer has referenced wrestling several times on his Twitter account during his run on Jeopardy.
It’s not quite the Undertaker but it’s still a big loss. Check out Holzhauer’s loss on Jeopardy:
Opinion: I mean, he seems to be a pretty big wrestling fan so it would make sense to have him appear as he’s definitely part of pop culture at the moment. If nothing else, it would be nice to have a celebrity appear who actually knows and appreciates wrestling and isn’t just there for some kind of a promotion with no idea what he is talking about. It could be fun, and that’s what it should be.
