Another World Wrestling Entertainment show is coming to television, this time from A&E Network. The company announced a new show called The Quest for Lost WWE Treasures, hosted by Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. In the show, McMahon and Haitch will help collectors track down and purchase rare WWE memorabilia. It feels like one of those auction shows where people go to estate sales and storage unit auctions to find valuable junk, but for rednecks who like wrestling instead of just regular rednecks. It also marks a change for Triple H, who instead of burying talent, will instead be digging up treasures.
The Quest for Lost WWE Treasures joins an upcoming wrestling-related programming lineup for the network which will also include episodes of Biography focused on Macho Man Randy Savage, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Booker T, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Shawn Michaels. Presumably, the show will have to wait until the end of the coronavirus pandemic, unless Stephanie and Triple H intend to do their treasure hunting via Zoom. Below, see the description of the show from the press release.
