The Titans Games’ third episode put power on the front burner

It was all about asking more from the competitors’ bodies. The latest episode of The Titan Games was all about pure power. A new challenge was best suited for the physically biggest competitors we’ve seen so far. We’ve not even sure it would be possible for lighter competitors to accomplish without adjustments. When an old injury was seriously aggravated on Mount Olympus, we saw the power that comes from stubbornly refusing to stay down. It’s about to go down.

We have questions about this stunt from Jake Murray and Grant McCartney

Someone please explain this to us. We’re used to seeing Ninja stunts on Instagram. We find them all impressive because in all honestly, we couldn’t even pull off what would seem like the most basic of them. American Ninja Warriors Jake Murray and Grant McCartney are no strangers to these types of clips. They’re always jumping and flipping around. But Grant recently posted one on Instagram that has us making this face. It’s not the grandest clip. It doesn’t make your palms sweat from the dizzying heights. It’s just that… Well, watch it for yourself. View this post on Instagram […]

Kyle Soderman brings his Ninja Warrior passion to LA while waiting for his shot

He’s a well-known competitor, although he still hasn’t stepped on the American Ninja Warrior course. When we prepared to chat with Kyle Soderman, we found ourselves thinking, “Kyle Soderman… He’s great on the course. What were his results last season? Wait a second…” Because for all the name recognition Kyle has accrued, he’s never stepped on the American Ninja Warrior course. However, that doesn’t mean he’s not acknowledged as a talent amongst the American Ninja Warrior community and accomplished in his own right. It also isn’t stopping him from growing the sport through his new role with Ninja Nation. Kyle […]

A bot is generating Ninja Warrior names and it’s hilarious

It’s also pretty accurate. We downright love watching people’s reactions to American Ninja Warrior. The contestants, the obstacles, the stories; You have to admit, it’s a LOT to take in at first. One fan (we’re just going to assume they’re a fan) decided to bring technology into it and we are IMPRESSED. Adam Liss, @Manaliveprod on Twitter, started small. He fed the names of past ANW competitors into a program that then generated names and jobs. (Okay, first of all, how did he get the names of ALL the past competitiors? That’s some dedication right there.) Because I’m hella dumb, […]

After all that, both were thrilled to have faced off against such strong competitors. The second episode of The Titan Games opened with a challenge that was unforgettable.
