FOR PEOPLE WHO LOVE ARMWRESTLING, THIS IS SOMETHING MORE THAN JUST A SPORT, IT IS A WAY OF LIFE; A GREAT PASSION. YOU HAVE IT IN YOU OR YOU DO NOT HAVE IT... AND YOU, DEVON LARRATT ARE GREAT AMBASSADOR OF THIS SPORT.
Why John Brzenk is The Greatest Armwrestler of All Time?... Eric Roussin explains it very well in his newest article on The Armwrestling Archives.
"John Brzenk is the most successful armwrestler in the history of the sport. In his 35-year competitive career, it is estimated he has won 500 titles. A handful of other pullers have won hundreds of titles, but in terms of major professional titles, no one is even close to him. It is unlikely that we will ever see someone build such a lengthy and impressive armwrestling résumé.
Below is a chronology of MOST of the titles that John Brzenk has won. It includes class titles, overall titles, and supermatch wins. It begins with his first known major title in 1982 and ends with his most recent one in 2015. The list includes almost 400 titles won on five continents. There are certainly other titles -- should anyone be aware of any, please contact me and the list will be updated."

On this occasion I would like to invite you to two exhibitions. "Buzz" will take place in Media City in Manchester, UK on 8-11th June 2017, and "Eclectic" will take place in 5th Base Gallery in London, UK on 11-13th 2017.
The work features a very successful sportsman; arm-wrestling legend, current WAL World Champion, Devon " NO LIMITS " Larratt.
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.
"The Pro Football Arm Wrestling Championship will bring together 32 of professional football's strongest players to compete in a two-team competition where a champion team, one lightweight and one heavyweight champion will be crowned. A portion of all prize purses for both individual and team competitions will be donated to charities of the player's choice.
"After months of anticipation and buildup in the biggest year in World Armwrestling League history, WAL is ready to explode the sport again – with a MASSIVE increase in prize money for its 2017 Championship event!
As we launch 2017, we’re excited to keep unveiling these big, new events, where competitors will vie for the title of each WAL Major Champion – complete with their own unique rewards. Here are 3 important updates below:
