Can you survive Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge? (Video)


I think it is safe to say that everyone has heard the name “Stone Cold” Steve Austin at one point or another. If not, you may have been living under a rock for the last 10 years.

In any case, Austin has hosted a show called Redneck Island on CMT for three seasons. Redneck Island was pretty much what you would consider a countrified version of Survivor.

Now, the former WWE Champion is heading up a brand new series for CMT; one that, according to Austin, “makes Crossfit look like a Yoga Retreat.”

The reality competition series Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge will see contestants fight their way through some of the most grueling and physically demanding challenges you could possibly imagine. On top of that, they have to do it all while battling each other.

Eight contestants will, made up of both well-trained and amateur athletes, will enter the competition and in the end only one will remain. However, it doesn’t end there.

The sole remaining contestant will then have to conquer an obstacle course known as The Skullbuster in order to claim their prize.

Knowing what I know of Stone Cold Steve Austin and taking into consideration the name of the obstacle course, I am fairly certain that this is going to be an intense, and incredibly challenging course that will potentially break even the most well-trained of athletes.

Thanks to the good people over at Entertainment Weekly, we have a look at a preview for the series which gives you a look at some of the contestants, the heated competition between them, and some of the insane challenges they will have go to through.

Take a look for yourself.

 Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge premieres on Sunday, July 6th at 8:00 p.m. on CMT.
