Cody Rhodes Announced as a Judge for TBS' Go-Big Show

Following this week's AEW Dynamite, Cody Rhodes announced that he'll be taking part in the TBS' upcoming competitive talent show, Go-Big Show. The show will be hosted by comedian Bert Kreischer and feature Rhodes, Snoop Dogg, Rosario Dawson and Jennifer Nettles as the panel of judges.

A press release on the show reads, "TBS has ordered a full season of Go-Big Show, an hour-long extreme talent competition starring celebrity judges Snoop Dogg, Rosario Dawson, Jennifer Nettles and "The American Nightmare" Cody, and hosted by popular comedian Bert Kreischer. The show's pick-up was announced by the host and judges this evening from the set in Macon, GA and broadcast simultaneously across TBS, TNT and truTV, marking the three networks' inaugural roadblock announcement."

The show is scheduled for a 2021 release.

"Go-Big Show showcases supersized talents on a scale never before seen on television. Featuring monster trucks, alligator trainers, stunt archery and other radical feats, the program celebrates daring acts alongside personal, behind-the-scenes stories from the challengers as they battle head-to-head to impress the judges and advance toward the finale's ultimate $100,000 prize," the release continued. "Go-Big Show has begun production on 10 episodes at the Macon Coliseum, where contenders and staff are operating under strict Covid-19 safety protocols and isolating together for the duration of production. TBS is producing this series in consultation with local authorities, the unions and medical experts. The network's first priority is the health and safety of employees, production partners, cast and crew. While the 7,000 seats within the arena will remain empty during tapings, the show's lively indoor festivities will extend outdoors to TV's first-ever, interactive drive-in audience. Spectators will cheer for their favorite competitors in real time during a socially-distanced tailgate party just outside the venue which follows Macon-Bibb County Commission's Covid-safety mandates.


"We are going bigger and bolder with our unscripted line-up at TBS to provide more of the content that viewers love from our platform," Brett Weitz, General Manager, TNT, TBS and truTV, said in the release, "Go-Big Show not only delivers on this promise with a thrilling new take on talent competition, but it's also another example of our innovative spirit as we continue to create brand-defining, must-watch television."

Rhodes has been off AEW television since losing the TNT Championship to Brodie Lee. He mentioned in the hype video for the new show that he was currently injured, explaining his absence from Dynamite.
