He rose to fame as Vulcan in the popular '90s physical challenge show, Gladiators.

And while John Seru has expressed his respect for similar new show Australian Ninja Warrior, he doesn't appear to be too impressed with one of its hosts, Freddie Flintoff.

The 53-year-old spoke with the Hot 91.1 Breakfast Show on Wednesday, and queried why the former English cricketer was chosen to be at the helm of the show.

'Good for him for being a cricketer, but he’s not a commentator,' he continued about the 39-year-old, who has launched a TV career following his professional retirement.

'Why can’t we use an Australian cricketer?' he added.''

The former professional wrestler, who appeared as Vulcan in both the Australian and British versions of Gladiators, spoke highly of the Australian edition of Ninja Warrior.

'I’m sitting there watching it and it reminds me of the old days,' he reminisced.

When asked if he felt he could complete the challenging obstacle course featured in the show, the gym owner defiantly replied: 'Man, I would smash that!'

The Fijian-born fitness enthusiast discussed his fame as a Gladiator with The Daily Telegraph in 2014.

He revealed he has kept his flamboyant outfit from the program after all these years.

'I actually have it framed up in my house and when I look at it I can’t believe how f***ing small it is,' he said.
