I guess they can touch the buzzers? Wrestling is in an interesting place in the world of pop culture. Fans love it, but the mainstream world doesn’t seem to know if wrestling should be considered entertainment or a sport. This is of course completely different from reality television, which is considered completely entertainment and somehow often treated better. Now, a reality show about wrestlers is getting some mainstream attention.
As announced on WWE.com, the Bella Twins and their family from the cast of Total Bellas will be appearing on ABC’s Celebrity Family Feud on August 18. The Twins will be joined by their brother JJ Garcia, their mother Kathy Laurinaitis and cousin Lauren Jennifer Garcia as they play against a team of mixed martial artists with the winning team receiving money for a charity of their choice.
Wrestlers have been on Family Feud before. Check out some full episodes from back in the day:
Opinion: That’s certainly not the kind of thing that you see every day but it’s cool to see some wrestlers getting some attention. I know the Bellas might not be the most popular names in wrestling but they have the kind of mainstream appeal that can get them on a show like this. If nothing else, it could be funny to hear some of their answers, with the Bellas not being known for the most logical responses at times.
