Pro Football Armwrestling Championships
April 10th 2017
As many of you are aware, the Pro Football Armwrestling Championships took place this weekend in Las Vegas and is scheduled to air on CBS in late May/early June. This event has come into the spotlight as the NFL is considering fines on the players for violation of their gambling policies of the NFL. We have received countless emails and calls asking about WAL's role in the event and wish to clarify for WAL nation:
The event producers contacted WAL to request a release of rights for 3 of its contracted athletes for participation in the event. As always, when approached properly and ahead of time, WAL granted the show the rights to include Devon Larratt, Travis Bagent, and Luke Kindt as part of the production. Travis and Devon trained and coached various competitors, and we anticipate that they along with Luke will be included in the show.
WAL is not affiliated with this event but whole-heartedly supports the project, and wishes them all the best as these types of events will continue to raise the awareness of the sport.
Congratulations to WAL athletes Devon, Travis, and Luke!
