EVENT DETAILS

Sat, January 10th 2015 Ernest N. Morial Convention Center (Hall H), 900 Convention Center Blvd., New Orleans, Louisiana 70130 Time: 11:00am

After months of training, battles, effort and pain, it has boiled down to this: the qualifiers for the first-ever WAL Championship in New Orleans. Set in the world-famous Ernest N. Morial Convention Center on January 10, the venue will become an arena where the best arm-wrestlers in the nation will fight it out for their piece of the record-breaking $150,000 payout.

The entire WAL community has exuded grit, tenacity and passion in their effort to earn a spot at the top, and now it is these men who will enter The Pit once more to determine who is the baddest arm-wrestler in the land, and worthy of the title of WAL Champion.

women's competition

Women of the WAL: In recognition of your incredible effort and the growing enthusiasm in women’s arm wrestling, the WAL is excited to announce it will hold a limited women’s championship at WAL New Orleans. Previously, we had set the NOLA event as men’s classes only, but the ladies deserve their due. We’ve seen some great matches at our tournaments, and want to see more in New Orleans.

Here’s how this is going to work: Since we had different weight classes at different events, we will invite any women’s puller who placed Top 3 in any WAL weight class to New Orleans. The list of those finishers is below, and we will contact you all soon with registration details. If you placed Top 3 in any of our events, you are invited to come pull in New Orleans for the title of WAL Women’s Champion.
