Jerry Carreon : Just think about, those older women who were sitting behind him probably remember the 1st World War. 

Ryan Howell : Announcers talking about the buddies of his that saved him, yeah they helped him up after, but did you see that fucking Matrix hold he pulled, hand against the hall down low, and basically flagging the side of that stadium. This man is a legend.

E.N.D Network : The style back then, bowl hair, tight clothes and steroid arms.

bish325 : days when everyone was fit

D X : A lot of things worked in his factor.  He was able to slow his momentum down by using his other arm, preventing a hard snap which likely would have caused his grip to break.  His strength certainly helped as well.


Dingle Barry : Just two more reps of Stadium nearfalls to go.

Grant Goodman : I'm betting that guy could have pulled himself up solo with those guns. He held on with one hand for a while

KidKarries : Those old people in the second row are dead now

Shermeka G.1983 : the man that helped him looks like his twin brother.

Robert Arnott : I don't mean to brag, but I've fallen over a hundred on more than one occasion. If this has had happened today, his friends wouldn't have saved him, but they would have it caught on their Iphones

dablocishot77 : The guy pulled a popeye grip on that bar. I wonder if he does gymnastics. did a full 180 while holding on a bar with one hand.

jj wise : hall of fame wrestler Mr Wonderful claims that this was him

Tony Music : What did the ceiling fan say? WOOHOO! YEAH NO. 1! GO CEILING!

shortii12341 : I think he almost gave those older women a heartattack

JediFight : His name is Randy Kobman. He was 18 and a senior at Lakota high school. Went to Indiana on football scholarship. You can google him.

Chewy : It's Dirk Diggler & Reed Rothchild lol

Liam : So it doesn't just happen in movies I guess

Your Dad : is everyone in Cincinnati fearless like Dean Ambrose?

geddoe316 : to be fair the dude looked pretty ripped. i doubt most people could have pulled themselves back up with that much weight crashing downward

birch5757 : Aaaaand that's why I have a pull-up bar.

Son Omni : Nicest save ever

Mr1000words : this is why you workout folks.  He was in no danger at all.

Kevin Lomeli : What an intense moment!

KOHF34 : There's an article on this guy: Randy Kobman is his name (he is alive and running a shipping business in Cincinnati). Thing is, he skipped school that day. What ultimately saved his life was the fact that he could bench 330 lbs. at the time. He caught the foul ball, but forgot where he was and nearly fell over. In case anyone was wondering, the elderly man in the row above him wound up with the ball, and refused to give it to him.

Patrick McCallum : Am 53 and was tellin my 63 yr old cousin about this. I can't believe he never seen this, I never forgot it. One on the most amazing things I've ever seen. Don't know how he held on, smh......

Nomad -81- : Fan was 19 then. Compare him to the average 19 year old male today.

Patrick McCallum : Wonder what ever happened to this guy, lol......

Kevin Smith : This was the first Braves game I ever saw. I was 7 and had just moved to Marietta Georgia.

carpanthers4ever : Look at the pythons on that dude. He was probably never in any real danger of losing his grip. That being said, it baffles me that baseball stadiums continue to have these waist-high railings that any fan looking up at a fly ball can easily lean over and fall to their death as has already happened before. They should be chest high for the the average adult at least.

Aiche Jaye : Read a DEADSPIN article on this guy. He was a HS senior at the time. cut school to go to the game. Dude was 6'3" and 230 lbs. Football star who went to play for Lee Corso at Indiana University.

Those Video Game Moments : CLUTCH

A. Ortega : kinda looks like an Americanizzed Paul McCarty

CutterHistorical : i think they used a pixelated version of this in Triple Play 96 or 97

RPete100 : Isn't that Mitch Gaylord. Lol

coporal4 : figures.. Normal for Cincinnati.. People there have loose screws

hazelwood55 : I remember that, the guy was a linebacker on the IU football team.

No One : I only watched baseball like few years or so then after that, I lost complete respect for the sport entirely especially with steroid use and cheating. Never look back to baseball like basketball ever since. Don't miss it not one bit and not a cent came for me for many years now!

Tricia Gadd : If he had fallen, the people below would have been in worse shape than him.

Stephen Kennedy : Buy an XL shirt dude

QU8K : Hey it's good guy greg in the 80s good job greg

MissMichSan : funky....

runninglo112365 : 0:45, those two people in a row!, huh.? lol.

jdspreest : Looked like a couple jobbers from the WWF

Machine Gun Nest : spider grip lol where was he going lol wise up folks

David Pieper : More like pull-ups

Thomas Bork : He was a football player at indiana university

jeff steedman : Wow, that guy was close to breaking his neck. That guy looked like he likes his juice and roids!!

E853512KISS : shit !!!! almost the british bulldog falls !!!!!

Heavy Early : everything, the man had the obvious strength, the the body control, the andy travis 81 feather haircut.
