The best of both worlds. The WWE Network is a great place for a wrestling fan as you can always find something to watch. It might be a documentary, live wrestling, an old school show or one of their reality shows, but there’s always something out there. That covers a wide variety of genres, but there’s one area that hasn’t been touched yet: game shows. With the world of wrestling, you would think there would be quite a few possibilities out there. One legend seemed to think so too and had an idea.
New Day had an idea of their own.
In a recent Tweet, Bully Ray revealed a concept for a game show that he pitched to the WWE Network. The show, which would have been called Superstar Squares, would have been based on Hollywood Squares with WWE Superstars as the panelists and fans as the contestants. Hollywood Squares was a tic tac toe themed show with contestants answering questions to win spaces and needing three in a row on a grid to win the round. While not specifically stated, it seems that the idea was turned down.
I pitched an idea for a game show to @WWENetwork called “SuperStar Squares” (think “Hollywood Squares”)
Would be fun and entertaining w/ fans being the contestants. https://t.co/Xhs44hSZIb

Opinion: As a big fan of both game shows and wrestling, this sounds like a great time. That being said, given WWE’s obsession with not wanting to spend much money on most of their shows, I can’t say I’m the slightest bit surprised at this being turned down. The idea would be a lot of fun but with a set, a host and the production required, it would probably be too expensive for WWE. Maybe they could have yet another interview show instead. They haven’t debuted one of those in at least a week.
