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

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

325bish : days when everyone was fit

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.

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

edwinmusic : 0:13 BLUE SHIRT MAN IS PABLO ESCOBAR!!

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

Chewy : It's Dirk Diggler & Reed Rothchild lol

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

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.

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

Kevin Lomeli : What an intense moment!

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

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

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

Rounding Third : Here's a story about the guy who fell over the railing. https://deadspin.com/the-kid-who-didnt-die-at-riverfront-stadium-1796882505

Jon Smith : Bunch of assholes.  Sweet outfit though, peep them leather boots.

White omni god Goku : Nicest save ever

Jake Williams : This is a time when the USA was not fat and not lazy, but in this new brave USA he would of weigh 300 pound, fallen and crush about 2-3 people killing them instantly.

robotorch : He's 54 years old now and widely known, apparently http://deadspin.com/the-kid-who-didnt-die-at-riverfront-stadium-1796882505

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

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

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

Lilliemae E : the man that helped him looks like his twin brother.

Richard Powell : spider man, spider man \m/

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.

Those Video Game Moments : CLUTCH

Lincoln Osiris : You think he was embarrassed?

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.

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

jdspreest : Looked like a couple jobbers from the WWF

A. Ortega : kinda looks like an Americanizzed Paul McCarty

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

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

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

Thomas Bork : He was a football player at indiana university

MrTedMcForeHead : this fall wouldn't have killed him anyway

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

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!

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

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

RPete100 : Isn't that Mitch Gaylord. Lol

David Pieper : More like pull-ups

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