The official press release states (via PWInsider):

USA NETWORK PARTNERS WITH BUDDIES BLAKE SHELTON AND CARSON DALY TO STAR IN AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCE WILD AND CRAZY NEW CELEBRITY GAME SHOW “BARMAGEDDON,” HOSTED BY NIKKI BELLA

Superstar Duo Invites Audience Into Nashville’s Ole Red for a Front Row Seat as Celebrity Friends Compete in Over-the-Top Bar Games

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – May 5, 2022 – USA Network goes all in on a good time, joining forces with Blake Shelton and Carson Daly to star in and executive produce the exciting celebrity game show you never knew you needed, “Barmageddon,” hosted by Nikki Bella.

Longtime friends Shelton and Daly head to Nashville and open the doors to Blake’s bar, Ole Red, and everyone is invited to join their party. With Daly behind the bar and Shelton taking the stage with his house band for live music sing-alongs in front of a rowdy crowd, both the icons and celebrity favorites show a new side to themselves in this anything but ordinary game show. No stranger to competition and sheer domination herself, WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella heats up the party and sets the stakes as celebrity friends go head-to-head in a series of classic bar games with a fun twist, including Air Cannon Cornhole, Keg Curling, Drunken Axe Hole, Sharts (“Shelton Darts”) and many more. The games are bigger, the antics are louder, and the competition is ludicrous in the best way.

In each episode, two celebrities will play a unique set of five games in the bar to win a much-needed prize for a viral Internet sensation each has chosen to support. Plucked from obscurity following their epic misadventures on the Internet, these now-infamous stars find themselves at Ole Red hoping to be redeemed. The competition heats up when the losing rival of each round has a chance to even the score by spinning the Wheel of Redemption, a risky move with hilarious consequences. Shelton and Daly will offer words of encouragement – and heckling, of course – to their celebrity friends. On occasion, they might even step in to show off their skills and play a game or two. Ultimately, the winning team takes home a prize while the losing celebrity must accept the shame of defeat. But this is Barmageddon – even if they did not win, at least they had a ton of fun trying.

“Nashville is known for great music and hospitality, which makes it the perfect setting,” Shelton said. “I’m excited about ‘Barmageddon’ and can’t wait for friends, old and new, to join my buddy Carson and me for some drinks, music and high-spirited fun at Ole Red.”

“Blake, Lee and I wanted to create a show where the audience can feel like they’re hanging out with us at Ole Red in Nashville, having a drink and cheering on friends as they compete in the ultimate test of athleticism and endurance – bar games!” Daly said.

“Barmageddon” is produced by White Label Productions and JLP Pictures for USA with Blake Shelton, Carson Daly, Lee Metzger, and White Label’s Chris Wagner serving as executive producers.

Nikki Bella recently discussed the possibility of a return to the ring, which you can read more about right here.
