    The future-shock new series is called Robot Combat League and the project has been kept under wraps until today. The action resembles a real-life version of last year’s hit movie Real Steel, with large menacing robots pounding away at each other in a satisfying shower of sparks and gushing hydraulic fluid. And just like in the film, the ‘bots will be controlled by shadow-boxing operators whose movements are translated into metal-on-metal punches. WWE wrestler, author and Dancing With the Stars veteran Chris Jericho will host.

    time will tell, if the fights are exciting they will need a huge budget to keep up on repairs, which doesn't seem likely given the limited likely audience and ad dollars coming in.

    I'm guessing 1 season of awesome followed by half a season of fail and then cancellation.
