Nik Wallenda's death-defying walk across a gorge in the Grand Canyon was—thankfully!—a success.
But the daredevil's risky venture, which was aired live Sunday on Discovery's Skywire Live, wasn't quite as seamless as Wallenda, 34, had hoped it would be.
"I wasn't prepared for the movement of that cable,'' he said on Today Monday. "The tension dropped down. We knew it was going to vary a little bit by temperatures throughout the day (that) would change the tension on the cable, but it dropped down to about 62,000 pounds. We wanted it at 65. Because of that, it was moving pretty wildly under my feet."
