FIREWORKS FLY WHEN CMT’S NEWEST COMPETITION SERIES, “STEVE AUSTIN’S BROKEN SKULL CHALLENGE,” PREMIERES THIS SUNDAY, JULY 6

This Fourth of July weekend, Americans will be celebrating all things red, white and blue with beer, burgers, and some friendly competition by way of horseshoes and cornhole. So nothing says “America” like when wrestling icon Steve Austin kicks the competition up a notch with his new, badass competition series, STEVE AUSTIN’S BROKEN SKULL CHALLENGE, premiering Sunday, July 6 at 8 p.m. EST/PST on CMT.

The 10-episode series pits elite athletes against everyday men and women in the ultimate test of strength, stamina and wit. Each episode features eight contestants in head-to-head battles until the last man or woman standing earns the right to take on the toughest obstacle course in America created by Austin himself, the “Skullbuster,” for a chance to win cash.

In the first episode, there is no shortage of adrenaline as eight men battle for the win in Trench Warfare, The Pulverizer, and The Junkyard. If they lose, they leave. Austin’s rules are fair, and competitors are quick to learn that even those with the most physical power may not be a match against pure determination. In the end, only one athlete will make it to the Skullbuster and even then, there are no guarantees he will complete it.
