Everything Jericho does outside of wrestling sucks.

He hosted a game show where they dropped prizes off a roof or something. I think it lasted 2 episodes.

Yeah, Wipeout or some form of it....

Now I remember it was Mick Foley who hosted a robot combat show. I think it was on Spike.

I like it. I remember loving "Robot Wars" back 10+ years ago when it was on TV as a kid, it's pretty much like that, except the robots are bigger.

The premiere of Syfy's "Robot Combat League" hosted by WWE star Chris Jericho drew 1.3 million viewers Tuesday night.

Syfy touted the premiere as the best "unscripted series premiere in over two years among viewers 18-49." Syfy's full press release is below.

The show pulled in more viewers than UFC's "The Ultimate Fighter". 1.35 million for Robot Combat League and 1.14 million for Ultimate Fighter, which went head to head.

It wasn't a terrible show, but needs more variety ASAP. It's basically the movie Real Steel but on a TV show.

Personally, I prefer Battle Bots. The show a while back where people made their own bots and brought them in to fight.
