NBC premiered the ‘Titan Games’ last night, which is headlined by host and executive producer Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. This idea has been in the works for years, but it was worth the wait.
On the commentary was Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez and Liam McHugh with ESPN’s Cari Champion doing the reporting. The debut episode was filled with non-stop thrilling action for two hours.
In this episode, 16 athletes were competing in physically demanding courses. At the end, two men and two women were declared the first Titans of the season. Typically, when watching athletes compete on television, the athletes are deemed as famous.
However, what makes the Titan Games fascinating is that these athletes all come from different phases of life. For example, one is a truck driver, one is a construction worker, and one is a physical therapist just to name a few.
This is why the Titan Games is a must-watch because you have normal people like me and you looking like superheroes.
Don’t believe me?
