If a name works great for a car, chances are it would also work for an American Gladiator. You know, the roid-tastic athletes from the competition show from the early 1990s of the same name featuring iconic games like the Assault, Atlasphere, Powerball and the Eliminator. When I was a kid, it was basically my favorite TV show not starring Patrick Stewart. A reboot in the mid 2000s starring Hulk Hogan completely missed the mark and was terrible, but added a few more common names to the pile.
In fact, there are several more Gladiator names that would make swell car names ... such as, literally, Gladiator now that it would seem Jeep will apply it to the new Wrangler pickup. There's another one! Wrangler would've been a great Gladiator name. So now, enjoy 18 more cars that share their names with American Gladiators. Cue that iconic music.
