Thanks to this video of raw footage from WWE Legend's House where the occupants take part in a Latin dance class, TMZ has revealed the cast for the show. As rumoured earlier, "Mean" Gene Okerlund and "Rowdy" Roddy Piper are two of the participants, but not Dusty Rhodes or The Iron Sheik. I guess Dusty was too busy being involved with the running of WWE's developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling and Sheiky was too much of a potential liability to be chosen, but they could always be used on a later season if the first one proves to be a ratings hit. Rounding out the cast are six colourful WWE legends that are in the company's good books and wouldn't cause them any headaches while hopefully providing good reality TV: "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, Jimmy "Mouth of the South" Hart, Hillbilly Jim, Pat Patterson, Howard Finkel and Tony Atlas.

Though it doesn't have a confirmed home yet, as TMZ reported, it probably won't air on WWE's postponed network which has no launch date in site. At the moment, WWE are shopping the show round any cable networks that might be interested. Dave Meltzer mentioned on a recent radio show that it will likely end up airing on SyFy, the channel that is the home to Smackdown, in the late spring. What do you think of the cast line up, Cagesiders? Too safe and conservative or do you think this still has the makings of a fun alternative to WWE's usual wrestling programming?
