Can you handle 'Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge' trailer?

Posted on

If you are fan of grunting, sweating, and hardbodies crashing into each other, Steve Austin has a show for you. After hosting Redneck Island on CMT for three seasons, the WWE Hall of Famer takes the reins–and ropes–of another reality competition on the network: Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge, which “makes CrossFit look like a yoga retreat,” says the Stone Cold one himself.

Eight contestants–made up of elite athletes and amateur badasses–test their strength and stamina by squaring off in a series of grueling tests named things like the Pulverizer and The Junkyard. When the field is whittled down to one, that person will try to win cash by conquering an obstacle course called The Skullbuster. Use your laughably puny finger to press play on the jacked-up trailer, which includes one contestant vowing that she will “throw a bitch up off this mountain.”

Broken Skull Challenge premieres July 6 at 8 p.m. on CMT.
