Watch One-Legged Wrestler Zach Gowen Kick Ass on American Ninja Warrior (Video)

one-legged wrestler zach gowen kills it on american ninja warrior

The American Ninja Warrior course is hard enough for people in possession of all four of their limbs. To date only two people have completed the thing. And I’m not talking just this year. I’m talking ever. Only two have completed the American Ninja Warrior course in the entire history of the show.

I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t make it past the second obstacle, and I’m not 100% certain I would make it past the first. After all, it only takes one slip and you’re done.

Zach Gowen wasn’t intimidated, though. He may have lost his left leg to cancer when he was just eight years old, but don’t even think about calling him disabled. The dude is way more abled than I am. At one point he was even a semi-professional wrestler who appeared in the ring alongside Vince McMahon and Brock Lesnar. And on Tuesday night, during the American Ninja Warrior Indianapolis qualifier, he kicked some serious ass.

Needless the say, the crowd was pumped. Take a look:

Yep, pretty sure Gowen’s one leg is stronger than the rest of my limbs combined.

If you’d like to learn more about this guy, watch the trailer for his documentary below. You have to love this dude’s resolve.
