About Craig Tullier

Like many pullers before they go pro, Louisiana's Craig “The Fury” Tullier didn’t think there was any real money, or competition, to be had in arm-wrestling. He was just an 8th grade kid beating the older boys in the cafeteria until he discovered the local arm-wrestling scene and linked up with the legendary John Brzenk. "At 16 years- old, I called the best of the best John Brzenk, and asked him if I travel to him once a week, even pay would he train me to arm-wrestle. He said to me, you're 132 pounds and I am 220 pounds, I don't see how I could really help you.' So, at 17 years-old I reached out to Chad Silvers and asked him to train with me. He agreed to. Twice a month I traveled 13 hours each way for 5 years. This is what taught me that with hard work and dedication, you can set and achieve your goals. Do not let anything stop you from being the best that you can be." the 41-year-old refinery construction supervisor says. “It was worth every bit of it.”
These days, Tullier boasts a variety of national and world arm-wrestling championships. “I was addicted to it, and I wanted it,” he says. “Twenty-five years later, I’m more addicted.” Tullier excelled at other sports and likens WAL to mixed martial arts. Despite its quick pace, arm-wrestling is not an easy sport, he warns. “It makes you sore,” he says. “There have been days and nights where I couldn’t drive home from practice. I had to drive with my knees. It’s very rough on your tendons and connective tissues.”
Tullier also likes the fact that the fans will be right there as he and WAL’s other top pullers thrown down. “When they call your name and you’re stepping to the table, it’s just you and your opponent,” Tullier says. “I want to beat the one across the table from me. And I want to be the champion.”
