Giant Boxing Robots Reality Show Unveiled by Syfy

EW

Ready for the next generation of robot combat? Syfy has greenlit and shot the first season of a new show where eight-foot-tall state-of-the-art humanoid robots will rock ‘em and sock ‘em in a boxing cage until one is defeated.

The future-shock new series is called Robot Combat League and the project has been kept under wraps until today. The action resembles a real-life version of last year’s hit movie Real Steel, with large menacing robots pounding away at each other in a satisfying shower of sparks and gushing hydraulic fluid. And just like in the film, the ‘bots will be controlled by shadow-boxing operators whose movements are translated into metal-on-metal punches. WWE wrestler, author and Dancing With the Stars veteran Chris Jericho will host. (Robot Combat League, Syfy, TV)

I would watch this. It sounds like a fun concept.

How the mighty have fallen... reduced to hosting a rock-em sock-em reality show.

I honestly can't believe this is real. With some of the "real" shows TRU TV puts out with WWE producing I can't really believe this one will be real. I want to see if they are attempting to fake it, or if this is legit.....

If it's legit, I hope it doesn't end up like Robot Wars. Loved that show and it randomly disappears.

Wow its like Real steel is suddenly becoming real. I wonder if Hugh Jackman will be in this...
