Watch all your favorites moments: from Kacy Catanzaro becoming the first female to make it up the "Warped Wall;" to Brian Arnold falling on the last obstacle of Stage 3 and becoming the farthest-going American on the Mount Midoriyama course until this past season; to Chris and Brian Wilczewski,"The Brothers Wilczewski", as the first brothers ever to make it to Mount Midoriyama together. Experience again every run, every reach, every grab and every crash of the last three seasons of "American Ninja Warrior." From the Salmon Ladder to the Floating Monkey Bars, to the Spinning Log and more, all obstacles lead to the historic and epically shocking, Season 7 finale.
Then finish out the weekend by reliving the record-breaking first season of Esquire Network's "Team Ninja Warrior," which feature the world's strongest ninja warrior competitors teaming up to go head-to-head in a newly designed, but equally punishing, dual running course that incorporates speed, superhuman agility, skill and a whole new strategy of racing. Famous faces from previous "American Ninja Warrior" competitions joined forces to create 24 teams of three, featuring two men and one woman, that met on the course to compete against each other in three brutal rounds of obstacle runs that included challenges like the "Sonic Rope," "Flying Shelf Grab," "Double Jump Hang," and the fully redesigned "Dual Warped Wall." Relive the heated competition as teams like Brian Arnold's "Party Time," Brent Steffensen and Kacy Catanzaro's "Team Alpha," Joe Moravsky's "Storm Team Moravsky," Jessie Graff's G-Force and many more battle it out for the title of the first winners of "Team Ninja Warrior."
