Y-E-S !!!! Nik Does It, Running Free to Climax 23 Minute Skywire Journey Over Canyon... Bravo, the GREAT Wallenda!


Among the twittering masses (I, an outsider), this, just captured:

Nik Wallenda’s Skywire Act: Celebs React On Twitter

The Big Bang Theory star could not believe that Nik actually ran the last bit of the wire act. “Did he just ‘jog it in’?!?!” she tweeted. Meanwhile, Phillip was just happy to see him make it to the finish line: “Wow! Absolutely amazing!!! Congrats @NikWallenda ! #skywire #toldyounottolookdown,” he wrote.
Ciara Bravo of Big Time Rush tweeted, “That dude is a champ.” Well put, Ciara.

And Suze Orman said, “Now that was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen.”

CNN’s Don Lemon tweeted, “Congrats @NikWallenda on the #skywire walk. Your cray cray but with skills!”

Nik also got some love from the sports world. Eric LeGrand, the football player who was paralyzed during a college game but has inspirationally worked regain movement in his shoulders, actually found inspiration in Nik: “Wow he did it. Live your dreams but only once don’t try that mess again lol congrats Nick. I’m good crossing in a plane #skywire,” Eric tweeted.

And baseball player Bryce Harper wrote, “Good for him! So happy for him! To God be the glory! #SKYWIRE.”

Those 23 minutes when Nik was on the tightrope, high above the Grand Canyon were insane — so tense, so exciting, and an amazing adventure to behold. We couldn’t be happier that Nik completed the walk and made his dreams come true. What did you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know below!

Here on Earth, I did not see, could not get on my PC.  Was rather relieved, to be free of  having to look away ...
