I think it's worth mentioning that while Allen Fisher doesn't have any WAF titles, the "world championship" he won in many of those years was the "world championship" at that time so I don't think it's fair when people talk about him having fake world titles.

Very true. His titles certainly aren't "fake" titles. He attended "world championship" events, and earned all of these titles. The armwrestling world was much smaller in the '80s -- that's not Allen's fault. He beat the best of the time.

Dave Chaffee is also a WAF gold medalist (WAF 2010), and Tom Nelson is a WAF bronze medalist (WAF 2010). Both in the seniors category.
American rankings can be found at inthehook.com
Many of the guys are legitimate, top-level guys. Others aren't as competitive, but they are great people or are great personalities.
To Philip_777: There wasn't a whole lot of technique in the Ethan/Turbo match. Turbo was pretty much selected for comedic purposes, Ethan has far more strength in every position on the table. I know this from personal experience pulling both guys. Turbo is decent (not considering weightclass) with his left and would have been better matched with Ethan lefty. Turbo had no chance in any circumstance versus Ethan righty, no technique needed.
It's a strength sport, but as with bench pressing or anything else-technique is involved.

Liam you might be able to catch the episodes on AMC's website but I'm not sure.

I got deep into tonight's episode before some family members kicked me off the TV, and I have to say it is much improved.
