WWE and G4 recently teased an upcoming collaboration. The recently relaunched gaming network and the professional wrestling juggernaut have finally announced what they’ve been working on. A new series known as ‘Arena’ will mark the intersection of the unpredictable action of wrestling with the competitive aspects of video games.

In a press release, WWE and G4 noted that the show will air monthly. Professional gamers, streamers, celebrities, WWE superstars, and athletes will hash out personal and professional issues in a competition format. The stars will be subjected to wild challenges and stunts as they resolve their feuds.

G4 President Russel Arons touted the new project. Arons praised WWE for their ability to deliver quality entertainment content. He thinks the fusion is perfect.

“WWE is known for delivering quality entertainment to its loyal fan base and we are so excited to partner with them to bring this content to life and spotlight a mix of awesome talent. The G4 network creates a fusion between the worlds of gaming and popular culture. With Arena, we’re making a comical collision for fans of WWE, streamers, and celebrities with a monthly series on TV, YouTube and Twitch where rivalries will be resolved once and for all.”

The new series will premiere on Wednesday, June 29 on the G4 Twitch channel and WWE’s UpUpDownDown channel on YouTube. New episodes will air every month. Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch were among those named as participants.

WWE and G4 are hoping they have the perfect mix of gaming culture and professional wrestling to draw in viewers. Whether it is a success remains to be seen. Both companies believe they may have a hit on their hands.
