Programming Alert: Find out who is the 'Deadliest Warrior' tonight on Spike TV

Since we can all pretty much agree that Ken Shamrock is no longer the world's most dangerous man, we must now try to examine the warriors of the world to find out who is privy to that very illustrious title.

Who is the deadliest warrior that ever lived? Spike TV intends to find out with its new show "Deadliest Warrior," set to debut tonight (April 7) at 10pm ET.

John Rambo may have single handedly brought down a platoon of Spetznatz in the wow-I-shouldn't-have-made-that flick Rambo III, but who really would bring home the gold if the Green Berets tangled with Russia's finest?

More on that premise:

Each week on Deadliest Warrior, a new episode will pit two of the most feared warriors civilization has ever known against each other. Along with the use of 21st century science and the latest in CGI technology, each episode enlists warrior-specific world-class fighters and experts to provide insight into what makes these combatants tick, analyzing every facet of their unique skills of destruction, culminating in a head-to-head final fight between two legends of the battlefield that will produce the deadliest warrior. Other highly-anticipated showdowns this season include: Pirate vs. Knight, Taliban vs. IRA, Yakuza vs. Mafia, Viking vs. Samurai, Green Beret vs. Spetznaz, Maori vs. Shaolin Monks, William Wallace vs. Shaka Zulu and Ninja vs. Spartan.

Anyone who scoffs at the idea of trying to resurrect deceased warriors to do battle obviously never paid attention to the brilliance of Dr. Mindbender when he created Serpentor out of a bouillabaisse of villainous DNA.

After a quick look at the aforementioned list I'm leaning towards Shaka Zulu as an early favorite to win it all. From "Buffalo Horns" to the iklwa, the man was way ahead of his time. Who's your pick?

Be sure to tune in tonight at 10pm ET on Spike TV to find out who is the world's "Deadliest Warrior."

This, I command!
