Ninja Warrior speed bracket: Round one winners and the round two match ups

New, comments

How would these eight Ninjas fair on Stage Two in a speed round?

David Becker/NBC

Welcome to round two of the American Ninja Warrior speed bracket! Yesterday, you voted on eight different match ups, deciding which Ninja you thought would go the farthest the fastest on a brand new Stage One. There were some clear-cut winners and some pretty close calls.

Remember that the participating Ninjas were based on the results of season 10’s Stage Two. We had to put some parameters around who to include. There are dozens more Ninjas who all deserve to be included!

Today, we’ve put the winners together in the next round. Using your votes, we advanced eight Ninjas into four more match ups.

The scores were pulled from the poll results as of 8:53am PST on Thursday, April 4. They were used to create the semi final match ups, which can be found here.

Since we’ve already thought about Stage One, let’s move on to Stage Two. It’s a notoriously difficult stage that rarely sees more than a handful of finishers. In season nine, only three Ninjas (Joe Moravsky, Najee Richardson, and Sean Bryan) cleared Stage Two. In season 10, only two hit the buzzer, Drew Drechsel and Sean Bryan.

Which Ninja in each match up do you think would go the farthest the fastest on a brand new Stage Two?

Remember that in this hypothetical tournament, everything is a clean slate. So take into account the general difficulty of Stage Two, but the obstacles they’d face aren’t set in stone. Which Ninjas will you send into the semi finals of this bracket?

These results were pulled as of 10:00am PST to form the semi finals bracket.
