    Rollergames TV show is back on Fox Sports, FS1 and FS2. It's the 30th Anniversary of the show, showing the one and only season. Watch all the action of "new" roller derby action with some of your favorite teams. Apparentlyn the inspiration for the WMS game of the same name. Williams even had a advertising banner trackside with a Police Force and a video game on the banner.

    Hell yeah! Thank you for the heads up. I loved the pinball machine as a kid but never got to watch the show. Thank you for the heads up.

    Not sure if they are showing the whole season. Aug. 1 was the semi's and the final. It was great fun. My wife and I were laughing a lot.

    I remember watching Rollergames in the early 1970's on KBHK tv 44 in San Francisco. The games were videotaped at Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles and were announced by Dick Lane and Bill "Hoppy" Haupt.

    I remember asking Steve Ritchie “why Rollergames?” He said they were debating between Rollergames and American Gladiators and predicted the Rollergames TV show would outlive American Gladiators.
    If this catches on and they make new episodes maybe they were right!

    I was born in 83 and loved Saturday mornings that consisted of the mainstay WWF Superstars and WWF Wrestling Challenge, followed up by a rotating cast of shows like American Gladiators (also a mainstay), Rollergames, and Knights and Warriors. All those shoes were awesome to an impressionable ~9yr old. Would’ve loved to see rollergames today but knowing American Gladiators is on loop on Pluto TV is pretty great.

    I didn't ask him but I knew that was why too
