Ever since we got a peek at American Ninja Warrior: Ninja vs Ninja’s full team roster, we’ve been wondering who’d face off. Now, we have all off the preliminary match ups for you!
36 teams of three Ninjas will head into the first round of competition. In each episode, four teams will battle it out in a best-of-five format (which will be explained in more detail very soon). Each episode will culminate in a winning team that will head to the next round.
Having these match ups allows us to do some case-by-case predictions and analysis. All the teams are incredibly stacked with talent, but how do their skill sets match up with who they’ll need to face to stay in the game?
Here are your Ninja vs Ninja preliminary rosters! Who do you think will survive the first round? Ready to debate your predictions? Head to the comments section at the bottom of this article.
