Wipeout Wiki

The Wrecking Ball (or as in season 3 nicknamed "Wrecky") is an obstacle element featured in a few episodes. The contestants have to conquer an obstacle while avoiding getting knocked off by a large black wrecking ball. Wrecky made his first appearance in episode 1x06 as an addition to the Dreadmill.

Wrecky as a Character[]

While trying to knock off the contestants, the Wrecking Ball also talks, occasionally taunting the player. He is voiced by co-host John Henson. Wrecky’s voice is very deep, and he hates fat-jokes. He also has a face drawn in during editing.

The Slow Wrecking Ball[]

In Episode 3x09 Wrecky was an addition to the Shakealator together with a new blue, slower moving Wrecking Ball, which is said to be his cousin. Both balls fell down at the contestants when they were on the shakealator. He speaks in a southern accent and is portrayed to be not as smart as Wrecky.
