“Epic” Challenge For Salina Man

A Salina man who will be a contestant on what’s billed as the toughest competition series on television, says “it will be epic.”

Brad Godfrey of Salina will be a contestant Tuesday night on the premiere of the new season of “Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge.” The series, hosted by Hall of Fame professional wrestler Steve Austin, airs on the CMT television network.

The show features world-renowned athletic contenders including Spartan, CrossFit, power lifters, professional athletes, MMA fighters and everyday heroes who face off against each other – and the desert heat – in a series of intense challenges with only one advancing to the grueling skullbuster challenge personally designed by Austin.


Godfrey tells KSAL News that his episode was taped back in July, in California. Though he can’t reveal how it ends, he says that he was pleased with his performance.


Godfrey says he plans to watch the episode with his girlfriend, at her parent’s home in Lindsborg.

According to the network, this will be the 5th season of “Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge.”  The series  last season attracted more than 4 million weekly viewers.

Godfrey, who is a body builder, manages the Complete Nutrition store in Salina.  He also has a new lifestyle and clothing line.
