Spike TV has lined up an all-star roster for Pros vs. Joes.

The 10-episode one-hour series, debuting in April, pits “regular guys” against their sports heroes in competition.

The roster of Pros includes: Jerry Rice (future National Football League Hall of Famer), Herschel Walker (1982 Heisman Trophy winner), Karl Malone (future National Basketball Association Hall of Famer), Bo Jackson (Heisman Trophy winner, two-sport all-star), Tony Dorsett (four-time Pro Bowl Dallas Cowboys NFL running back), Clyde Drexler (NBA Hall of Famer), Jennie Finch (Olympic Games softball star), Jim McMahon (former Chicago Bears NFL quarterback), Brandi Chastain (former U.S. National Soccer Team star), Dominique Wilkins (former NBA All-Star ), Alexi Lalas (former U.S. National team soccer star), Muggsy Bogues (former NBA point guard), Xavier McDaniel (former NBA All-Star forward), Bill Goldberg (former wrestling superstar and NFL linebacker), Dan O'Brien (Olympic decathlete), Gary Hall Jr. (eight-time Olympic medalist swimmer), Misty May (U.S. Olympic gold-medalist volleyball player) and Dave Stewart (four-time 20- game winner and MVP of the 1989 World Series for Major League Baseball’s Oakland Athletics).

“This series will answer the age-old question every guy is thinking: If I got the chance, could I prove that I'm a better athlete than an NFL Hall of Famer like Jerry Rice, an NBA Hall of Famer like ‘The Mailman,’ or even one of the world's best female soccer players?” Spike TV senior vice president of alternative programming Sharon Levy said in a prepared statement.
