    Ok I've been able to obtain the actual article for the original American Gladiators interviews. Here's what the article had to say:
    NBC's brisin' new hit has fans nostalgic for the squad from the old syndicated version (1989-96). People's Nicholas White caught up with three still-tough characters.

    Nitro
    Real Name: Dan Clark, 43
    "We built American Gladiators on our broken knees, our sore backs, our jammed fingers," says Clark, an actor, screenwriter and consultant on the new show. "Not a day goes by when people don't [recognize] me."

    Ice
    Real Name: Lori Fetrick, 44
    "My character was kind of me," says Fetrick. I'll go out, kick your butt, smile and walk away." She sells real estate in L.A. "I'm an entrpreneur = I found out that's my strenght. It'd be fun to be on Celebrity Apprentice!"

    Laser: Real Name: Jim Starr, 45
    "In my seven season I had 12 surgeries," says Starr, who now works in the fitness-product develompent. "Are these new [Gladiators] as athletic as the old ones? It's going to ve a lot of fun to find that out."
