Ryan Clark


American Gladiators returns to NBC on Sunday night January 6th at 9PM. Hosted by Hulk Hogan and Laila Ali, the show will feature everyday people competing in a number of physical challenges against the Gladiators, a team of action stars and stunt professionals.

The roster of Gladiators has been announced and one of them is Tanoi Reed – cousin of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Reed’s Gladiator name is “Toa”. Listed as 6’3″ and weighing 240 pounds, his profile reads:

With his tribal garb and distinctive tattoos, he may conjure up images of an island paradise, but facing him in battle is pure hell. Drawing on the power of his ancestors, Toa has the strength of a thousand warriors flowing through his veins, and he will never, ever show mercy.
