CALL FOR CONTESTANTS: WHEEL OF FORTUNE IS LOOKING FOR WWE SUPERFANS TO PLAY ALONGSIDE WWE SUPERSTARS
Culver City, CA (October 31, 2022) – For the first time ever, Wheel of Fortune (WOF) is partnering with the WWE on a week of shows and looking for WWE superfans to spin the Wheel and solve puzzles alongside some of their favorite WWE Superstars.
To be considered for an audition, fans who love WWE & WOF will want to visit www.wheeloffortune.com to register and upload a video letting producers know why they are the WWE’s biggest fan, why they should be a contestant during this electrifying week of shows, and which WWE Superstar they would want to play with.
The episodes will tape in early 2023 at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, CA and will air as part of the iconic game show’s milestone 40th season.
During the one-hour TV broadcast, Woods won $96,000 that was donated to his charity, Gamers Outreach, which is a charity that brings video games to hospitals. The celebrity version of Wheel of Fortune is one-hour long and Woods won both rounds. Unfortunately, he failed to win the bonus round following both of his wins.
