In a spectacle drawn out over two hours for television, Wallenda completed the two walks in about eight minutes. The stunt added to the Wallenda family legacy, as its latest star ramped up the drama with last-minute rigging changes and concerns about the wind.

"You guys watching think I'm crazy, but this is what I'm made for," Wallenda said after his first few steps on the wire.
