Production is Currently Underway in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES - June 6, 2008 � Ten brave stars have begun production to compete to be the "Celebrity All-Star Wrestling Champion" on CMT's new series HULK HOGAN'S CELEBRITY CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING. World champion wrestler Hulk Hogan, former President of World Championship Wrestling Eric Bischoff and professional wrestling manager Jimmy Hart will judge the celebrities on their performances throughout various challenges which include mastering complex wrestling moves, trash talk to intimidate the opponent and working a live audience. On the road to transforming them into wrestlers the cast will be coached by former professional wrestlers Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake and Brian Knobbs. Production is underway in Los Angeles and the series, based on an original concept by producers Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff and Jason Hervey, will premiere this Fall on CMT.

The HULK HOGAN'S CELEBRITY CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING cast includes:

- Danny Bonaduce- television and radio host, reality star and actor "The Partridge Family"

- Todd Bridges- television personality, actor "Different Strokes"

- ButterBean- Super-Heavyweight Boxer

- Trishelle Cannatella- television personality, reality star "Real World: Las Vegas"

- Dustin Diamond- television personality, actor "Saved By The Bell"

- Erin Murphy- television personality, actress "Bewitched" (Tabitha Stephens)

- Dennis Rodman- five time NBA champion

- Frank Stallone- actor, singer, Sylvester Stallone's brother.

- Tiffany- chart topping 80's pop singer

- Nikki Ziering- actress, Playboy playmate

During each of the eight one-hour episodes the celebrities will be faced with exhausting challenges and elimination matches that will lead up to the heart pounding finale that will determine the winner. The contestants will be divided into two teams then taught the same set of moves to create the most exciting wrestling match against one another in an attempt to win over the judges and a live audience each episode. Twelve-time world champion Hulk Hogan will be just as tough on the cast as he was on his challengers in a match and each week the celebrity who doesn't bring their A-game will be thrown out of the ring. Ultimately only one will become the "Celebrity All-Star Wrestling Champion" on HULK HOGAN'S CELEBRITY CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING.

HULK HOGAN"S CELEBRITY CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING is executive produced by Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, and Jason Hervey of Bischoff-Hervey Entertainment. Melanie Moreau and Bob Kusbit are executive producers for CMT.
