Season 7 of ‘American Ninja Warrior’ has just started and it’s already claiming victims. The course took down NFL player Jon Ryan, who wiped out on the third obstacle! Yikes!

Ouch! We got to feel for Jon Ryan. The 33-year old punter for the Seattle Seahawks took on a challenge greater than any NFL linebacker: the American Ninja Warrior obstacle course. Jon participated on the NBC athletic competition show and, unfortunately, didn’t make it far! Click to watch for yourself!

‘American Ninja Warrior’: NFL Player Jon Ryan Fails During Attempt

Let us say it again: Ouch! During the May 25 episode of American Ninja Warrior, Jon tried his best to be the one to finally conquer the obstacle course.

Yeah, it didn’t go so well. Though the punter was able to the first two challenges, when Jon got to the tilting table, his luck quickly ran out. Jon made a dive in hopes to catch the opposite ledge, but it was too little, too late.

We do feel bad for Jon, but that course is absolutely brutal! It has taken down a lot of athletes and stars alike, all trying to make it to the top. In fact, last season, only 18 contestants even cleared the first stage. Then, out of those 18, only two were able to clear the second stage and neither Joe Moravsky and Elet Hall failed to complete stage 3. As of the start of this season, no one has won the grand prize.

Jon Ryan: Fans Show Support For His ‘American Ninja Warrior’ Attempt

Thankfully, Jon didn’t seem too hurt. His pride was bruised, but at least he walked away from the experience. His attempt received a lot of support from his fans on Twitter.

In a show of solidarity for his fellow punter, Indianapolis ColtsPatt McAfee tweeted his support and pride for Jon.

Though Jon’s time on American Ninja Warrior was short, he promised that he would come back next year and get any further. And Ninja Warrior clearly was excited for him to give it another shot!

What do you think about Jon’s American Ninja Warrior attempt, HollywoodLifers? Should he try again?
