But, hey, with the show's revival here in the States, it kind of feels like that again, if only a little. And now, with some thanks to Nintendo, our friends across the pond can partake in bulky men and woman tossing around scrawny participants, too!

Instead, you'll see ads for Wii and other Nintendo-related goodies. Better, no?
