Professional arm-wrestlers as seen in the World Armwrestling League on ESPN are set to descend on Billings, MT next week to meet local fans and battle it out in a winner-take-all tournament.

As part of the WAL’s 50 State Championships series, the top-level arm-wrestlers will be on hand to meet members of the community, give tips on training and technique, and grip up with wannabe “pullers.”

“Everybody can arm-wrestle, and everyone who thinks they might like it should give it a try,” said Ben Murray, Director of Operations for WAL. “A lot of these guys are even mightier than they look on TV, which can’t really show you how incredibly strong a competitive arm-wrestler is in his arms and hands.”

Some of the best in the Billings, MT area will be on hand on Oct. 24 at Al Bedoo Shrine Auditorium for the WAL event.  Arm-wrestlers and officials will offer meet-and-greet opportunities and a workshop on the sport before competition begins.

Then, the tournament for all those who want to compete will start at 3 p.m.
