PUBLISHED: 15:00 01 September 2018
Some of the world’s top wrestlers traded the ring for something even more terrifying - the world’s tallest tunnel slide.
After visiting the O2 to perform in a WWE Live event, they headed across the river to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to take on the ArcelorMittal Orbit slide.
GoPro footage captured the reactions of the four wrestlers as they headed down the 178m slide.
“This is crazy,” said Ruby Riott, before adding: “It’s getting faster, why’s it getting faster? That was so scary!”
Finn Balor added: “That was fast. Holy smokes.”
Only Titus O’Neil, a former American football player turned wrestler, wasn’t scared of the speedy descent.
“This is what I’m talking about,” he said. “I’m going again. It was great.”
During his slide, he even called out other wrestlers for not taking on the challenge.
