John Brzenk vs. "John Doe"


Would you believe that several individuals once bet thousands of dollars that a man who had never armwrestled on an official table would beat John Brzenk? It happened, back in the fall of 1994. This is the story of how the whole thing unfolded.

In the mid-‘90s, Darren Sebring (former AAA State Director for Indiana) was running armwrestling tournaments in Indianapolis which typically offered cash prizes. John Brzenk had competed in at least one of them. "Big Arm" John, a local amateur armwrestler, also competed in these events. It was at one of these events that John Brzenk and "Big Arm" John met.

Around the summer of 1994, “Big Arm” John was playing pool for money with a man named Jim Royer in Toledo, Ohio.  Both men liked to gamble and the conversation turned to armwrestling. "Big Arm" asked Jim if he knew anyone good at armwrestling. Jim replied that he did: in fact he knew a local guy who had never been beat. "Big Arm" then asked if Jim would be interested in placing money on this guy if a match was arranged with someone "Big Arm" knew. Jim was very interested, as he had never seen the local guy struggle in an armwrestling match. “Big Arm” asked Jim how much he’d like to bet, and he responded something like “however much you want to bet”. That was all "Big Arm" needed to hear, because luckily for him, and unluckily for Jim, the man that he knew was none other than John Brzenk. 

THE UAL COME BACK !!!



Comment under the video on you tube: "The UAL has done so many great things for so many armwrestlers...The UAL is the best league in Armwrestling and if you havent been to a UAL event, you have NO idea what you are missing...Robert Drenk And Bill Collins are a great team and will change the way the public looks at armwrestling.The UAL has an entire staff that is top notch in every way....thank you to The UAL."

The Biggest Supermatch of All Time

print screen: MY ARM TV

The time was November 1978. Cleve Dean, a 6’7” 480-lb hog farmer from Georgia had been competing in armwrestling tournaments for less than a year. Aside from losing in the final of his first competition in December 1977, he since hadn’t lost a single match. He had just won the heavyweight title at the World Wristwrestling Championship in October in Petaluma and he felt on top of the world. However, even though he won the title, some of the top competitors of the day did not take part in that event. Cleve wanted to prove that he was the best armwrestler on the planet, so he came up with a proposition…

In 1978, Tony Celeste was busy establishing his new venture – Arm Wrestling International (AWI) – as the top professional armwrestling organization in the world. He had already organized two elite-level events in Las Vegas in January and June of that year. The events set records for prize money and consequently attracted many of the very best armwrestlers. Cleve caught wind of this and contacted Tony and asked if he was interested in organizing a special event. Mr. Dean was willing to pull anyone in the world in a two out of three format for $2,500 (equivalent to nearly $9,000 in 2013). Tony would take care of the event arrangements, but the money would be put up by the competitors. Only one puller came to Tony’s mind: Virgil Arciero.
