When A. Smith and Co were announced as the team of producers behind the 2017 NFL ProBowl Skills Showdown, we knew it was going to be crazy. As the team behind American Ninja Warrior, they have plenty of practice testing athlete’s limits.
They delivered on that promise, and there was even some Ninja Warrior similarities in there if you knew were to look.
There were five different challenges in the Showdown:
- Precision Passing
- Drone Drop
- Power Relay
- Best Hands
American Ninja Warrior host and NFL analyst Akbar Gbajabiamila was on location, jazzing things up with his personality.

First, let’s talk about the Power Relay. Wait a second, that wall looks familiar....
This color scheme is ringing a bell.
Just like in American Ninja Warrior, you have to pay attention to the rules!
Dodgeball doesn’t really have anything to do with American Ninja Warrior, besides being awesome.
But they do share thrilling celebrations of success!
Why don’t we flavor more things with the Ninja Warrior spice? Think about it: Golf with Warped Walls between holes, 100 meter dash with Quintuple Steps half way through. It could work!
