"We're excited to grow our partnership with Ice Cube and Cube Vision to re-imagine this fan favorite," MTV President Chris McCarthy stated. "Deathmatch was the meme before memes, remains a hot topic on social media and will be a smart, funny way to tackle the over-the-top rhetoric of today's pop culture where it belongs – in the wrestling ring."
The show has featured WWE superstars like Steve Austin, The Rock, The Undertaker and many other political and celebrity figures. The new series will be available on a variety of streaming services on a weekly basis.
