We’ve praised the “Nitro Circus Live” daredevils time and again for their endless displays of courage onstage, from Jolene and Jaie’s resilience on the ramp to an amateur’s attempt at the metal triangle of death. However, on tonight’s Season 2 finale, one pro’s tenacity puts the rest to shame.
In this sneak peek of the episode, wheelchair-bound stuntman Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham rolls out onto the ramp for the most unforgettable trick we’ve seen yet. “Every single one of us look up to this man,” hype-man Bruce Robson announces as Wheelz makes his way to the stadium. Instantly, the crowd erupts in support of the adrenaline junkie, who has never let his disability deter him from performing. “Clear for takeoff,” he jokes, before attempting his highly anticipated front flip. Unfortunately, Wheelz doesn’t touch down as smoothly as planned, and his chair turns on its side before sliding down the ramp — proving that crash landings aren’t the exception, but the rule, when you’re on tour with “Nitro.”
Find out what happens after Aaron’s crash landing on the Season 2 finale of “Nitro Circus Live,” tonight at 11/10c on MTV2!
