Jerry Springer is to host a new show on the WWE Network.
The 71-year-old presenter has teamed up with the streaming subscription service to host ‘Too Hot For TV’, which will re-introduce the WWE Universe to the most outrageous stunts and cringe-inducing moments in wrestling history.

“And what is more outrageous that the entertainment, drama and craziness of the WWE. This is going to be fun.”
The series – which kicks off in April – will be full of mind-blowing confrontations and racy romps that will leave WWE fans questioning whether they really happened.
Meanwhile, the ‘Jerry Springer Show’ host will inject his own brand of humour into each of the half-hour episodes, that which feature themes such as ‘Love Hurts’, ‘All in the Family’ and ‘Weddings and Funerals’.
‘Too Hot For TV’ will be available next month on the WWE Network’s video-on-demand library with new episodes added weekly.
