Help us pick the cast of (the very imaginary) American Ninja Warrior: Historical Figures Edition

Just in case there was any confusion, this is not real. But it’s fun!

On American Ninja Warrior, we’ve come to expect a few “guest slots” on the course each season: Famous or well-known people who aren’t exactly full-time Ninjas, but they want to give it a shot.

Then Twitter user @ColtonRebel planted an idea in our head:

Let’s go back in time and pick which history-makers we’d want to see on American NinjaWarrior: #HistorialFiguresEdition!

Here’s a few off the top of our brains.

Abraham Lincoln: Mental grit? Heck yes! And this article says he reportedly once carried a 600 pound load. So that sounds totally true.

Harry Houdini: He WOULD probably have some tricks up his sleeves for the course.

Annie Edson Taylor: The first person to survive a trip over Niagara Falls in a barrel. She would seriously have no fear of taking a fall on the course.

Napoleon Bonaparte: It seems like he’d be really dedicated to claiming the title for himself.
