MESQUITE — Hollywood Yates, best known as “The Wolf” from the American Gladiators, is now performing in a different arena. This time, he’s the rodeo clown barrel man at the Mesquite Rodeo.

Hollywood got his start in the rodeo and says he missed those bull bucking days. But his return wasn’t without danger. He recalled being gored by a bull.

This athlete is more than just muscle; he’s also into music. Hollywood is set to start his second album and maybe stage another return — to his Gladiator glory days.
