Akbar Gbajabiamila Challenges The Rock to Ninja Warrior


He first conquered the wrestling world, then he became an excellent actor, more precisely, one of the highest paid ones at the moment, so it was only a matter of time when something new will make him even more successful. So now, we’re waiting to see Dwayne Johnson’s show The Titan Games.

The show shares some resemblance to Ninja Warrior – it is produced by A. Smith and Co., it will air on NBC, and it has obstacles built by The ATS Team. All these things the two shows have in common prompted Akbar Gbajabiamila, the host of Ninja Warrior, to challenge Dwayne Johnson to take part in the course himself.

The Rock soon responded shortly: “Oh, he’s not ready for that.” He also added “I don’t know about that. I’m so humble. I would kick his *** from one end of the course to the other.”

Who knows, maybe someday, we’ll actually get to see this former wrestler in Ninja Warrior. In the meantime, stay tuned for more news. In case you don’t know much about Johnson’s upcoming show, here’s what NBC revealed about it:
“Inspired by Johnson’s desire to motivate global audiences to reach their potential for greatness, the competition welcomes men and women who are strong enough to believe in themselves and simultaneously confident enough to test their own abilities by taking on physical challenges of epic proportions. The Titan Games will test not only competitors’ physical strength but also their mental and emotional endurance. Taking place in a thrilling arena, the determination will be rewarded as a new breed of heroes will emerge.”

The Titan Games is set to be released on January 3, 2019, so you only have to wait a little bit more. We’re sure you won’t be disappointed.
