It's A Dank Off! Types Of Gladiators

about 1 year ago

When Strider hears the word Gladiator he immediately thinks of his high school volleyball highlight tape. Then, like everyone else he envisions Russell Crowe challenging the foundation of Rome from the sand of the Colosseum. What a dank movie! Russell gave it to all sorts of unfortunate dudes. Did those guys pick their gear and fighting style or was there gladiatorial positions like in modern day sports? Strider reviews and compares 8 main types of gladiators and declares which is the dankest.
