The show is pretty fake. I used to armwrestle and trained with Craig and Cobra. Most of the guys in the show on the different teams are good friends with each other. The Louisiana team has some better armwrestlers than Jerry, the 3 finger guy, and turbo, but they are kind of quiet normal looking guys. I think the producers picked some people that are "entertaining" to go along with the champions (Cobra, Craig, Underwood).

Cobra would probably have taken him when he was in his 30s. It is hard to maintain that much strength at around 50, plus he only weighs around 170. The match was pretty close, in a month maybe Cobra wins.
I was more suprised in how Underwood handled Craig Tullier. Craig hits extremly hard. The only person I have seen catch him like that was John Brezink.

That was the biggest WTF of the show. Louisiana's captain comes out and hits hard. KC guy just takes it like he's going against a school girl and easily pins him. Wasn't even close which was shocking because the LA guy seemed legit.
Although I would really love to see Luke Kindt (the small bad arse mechanic guy from Sac) vs Ethan Fritsche (the small freak strong guy on kc) Both of them completely smash everyone I've ever seen them pull. They may match up next week. It is Sac vs KC
Watch this when you get a chance. Pretty cool documentary on John Brzenk. He's like the Michael Jordan of arm wrestling. This movie was made in 09 but the footage is from 04 I think and at the time Brzenk was like unbeatable for 26 straight years or something crazy. A true master.
The movie shows him, Travis Bagent up and coming (he's on team Erie game of arms) and a Russian Beast.

I don't think anyone can hang with Travis. Maybe the guy from KC that has destroyed everyone so far. The one that takes his shirt off next week. And even then I don't see him actually winning, just putting up a fight.
