Contestant dies after completing course on ‘Wipeout’ show hosted by John Cena

According to reports, a Wipeout contestant died after completing an obstacle course on the show.

Deadline has confirmed with sources close to production that the contestant on the TBS show needed medical attention after completing the course and was seen to by medical professionals before paramedics were called and the contestant was taken to hospital, where he later died.

Police say they received a call just before noon on Wednesday and that the on-set emergency team had already been trying to revive the man via a defibrillator.

The source added that all "Wipeout" contestants "undergo medical examinations" before they are cleared to participate in the obstacle course.

However, court documents claim Rooney only ever accused Vardy's account of accessing the stories, not the star herself. After Friday's hearing, Mrs Rooney's spokesman said the ruling "changes nothing".


The show, hosted by John Cena, is now in production.

We're told there are precautions and safeguards in place on set.

A spokesperson for TBS, which airs Wipeout, said the network was "devastated" to have learned of the man's death. Two paramedics are also on-site, along with a safety producer and a paramedic coordinator.

The show is getting rebooted by TBS after a long run on ABC.
