Over the past decade and perhaps even prior, many wrestlers have made the transition from being in-ring competitors to hosts, singers, actors and even politicians. In particular, WWE Superstars of the past, present and future have expanded their horizons in the entertainment industry tenfold.
The latest Superstar to take the plunge is WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi. The lovable Superstar will serve as one of fifty entertainment experts on a new show to be produced for CBS titled “The World’s Best.”
Hosted by the ever-popular James Corden, the show will premiere on Sunday, February 3 following the Super Bowl LIII at around 10 PM ET / 7 PM PT. This will follow the post-game coverage from the event.
The description of the show is as follows:
Hosted by James Corden, The World’s Best is a first-of-its-kind global talent competition that features acts from every genre imaginable, from every corner of the planet. They not only have to impress the all-star line-up of American judges Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles, and Faith Hill, but the acts will also need to break through the “wall of the world,” featuring 50 of the world’s most accomplished experts from every field of entertainment. Only one act will ultimately be crowned The World’s Best.
The CBS website also showcases the experts and talks what country they represent and what their occupation is. At number 28, Rikishi represents Samoa and his occupation is, as one would expect, a WWE Hall of Fame Wrestler.
