- As noted, Nikki Bella was one of the celebrities that participated in the American Ninja Warrior obstacle course for the Celebrity Ninja Warrior Red Nose Day special that airs on NBC last night. Above is full video of Nikki's run with coach Grant McCartney. The one-hour special raised more than $185,000 to help fight childhood poverty around the world as Comcast pledged to donate $5,000 for every obstacle the celebrity completed on their run.
Nikki was the first celebrity to run the course and she earned $15,000. She cleared the Floating Steps, the Grab Bag and the Spinning Bridge but fell on the Flying Shelf Grab. There were 2 more obstacles that she did not get to - the Doorknob Drop and the Warped Wall. Celebrities to clear all 6 obstacles to earn $30,000 each were singer Ne-Yo, Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin, Access TV host Scott Evans, and former NFL player & ANW co-host Akbar Gbajabiamila.

Joe"), Brent Schoonover ("Captain Marvel") and Marco D'Alfonso ("I Am Groot").
"The friendship — and rivalry — between Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn is one of the greatest stories in modern WWE history," said BOOM! Studios editor Chris Rosa. "When we saw there was an opportunity to go behind the scenes and show more of their story than fans have seen before, it was a no-brainer."
