At some point you’ve played Rock ‘Em, Sock ‘Em Robots and thought “that would be cool to try out with real live robots.” Well dreams do come true. Syfy is bringing the Robot Combat League to our respective TV sets. The show will be hosted by former WWE superstar and Fozzy front man Chris Jericho and it will be on it’s way in the new year.
The creation of reality TV producer Craig Plestis and robotics expert Mark Setrakian, this unique show pits teams of two — one engineer and one “robo jockey” — with one of twelve custom made robots in an elimination style tournament for $100,000. If your bot is damaged during one of the boxing/MMA ruled fights you’re given 20 minutes to fix it, but if your box suffers a critical failure or your 20 minutes expire you’re out of the tournament and Hugh Jackman’s kid gets taken by his evil aunt Debra and uncle Marvin… or something. Check out more after the jump.
