On April 18, Team Ninja Warrior debuted its second season on its new home, USA Network. The competition show premiered at 10pm, right after wrestling sensation, WWE SmackDown.
Team Ninja Warrior hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila got to celebrate the new partnership in a pretty cool way: They got to crash SmackDown Live!
In their talk with Renee Young (above), the guys admit to being huge WWE fans. We got a very impressive pec flex from Akbar while he threatened to take wrestler A.J. Styles on in the ring.
Matt just wanted to have a few drinks and enjoy the show.
Check out the great time they had. We’re officially jealous.
Enjoy #SDLive, @Akbar_Gbaja and @mattiseman, ahead of tonight's @USA_Network premiere of #TeamNinjaWarrior! @NinjaWarrior pic.twitter.com/IoUufIxz5K— WWE (@WWE) April 19, 2017
