This ^^

I have no idea why some people think this was something other than a real match.

Yep

The discussion is behaviour, not aggression. Folks upset he behaved one way in one video, and a different way in another. The other was a comp, and as far as comps go pretty mild behaviour anyway.  Khaeld doesnt need to chill. The people watching the videos need to chill

 

 

 

And yep! Bullseye 👊🏻😎

I understand that some people get terrified watching this as they are not used to hard life. To Khaled, Schoolboy started "bullying" at 9:20 and Khaled is not the type to submit. He will hit back stro

You will even call him Khaled instead of calling him Awa.

A bit too stern here brother; this definitely could have been more politely put (said) as there are always two sides of the coin.

As much as we should respect a person's decision to name change and to sincerely remember and strive to use one's new given name it must be remembered and noted that Khaled was only recently introduced to the whole world and in those few initial videos and posts was originally named/referred to as "Awa" (before his conversion to Islam).  That name really stuck in lot of people's minds... mine included I must admit as I keep thinking of him as "Awa" on occasion and not out of disrespect in any way, shape, or form.

"Awa" was a slightly unique (cool) sounding name; it easily rolled off the tongue; and because Khaled really did totally knock all our socks off with his incredible raw/untrained gripping power that original name "Awa" unfortunately imbedded into people's minds hard... Larry Wheel's to name one (he kept slipping up on that in his videos and I was a bit dismayed that such a nice polite guy was slightly but publicly chagrined for it as it was clearly an honest mistake on his part as he is extremely and sincerely excited about Khaled's potential in the strength world.

I guess my point is that using a wrong name shouldn't always be immediately viewed as a sign of prejudice or ill-will intent but rather simply the quirkiness of human being recall memory. Cheers and respects.

 I understand why you and some others do not feel comfortable talking to Khaled or seeing him in public. 

I don't feel emasculated watching Khaled arm wrestling much in the same way I don't feel emasculated watching Lasha snatch 220 kg. I just enjoy watching strength sports, especially at elite level. I have no interest talking to Khaled and most other people for that matter (sorry I called him Awa, simply forgot he changed his name) and I don't feel 'uncomfortable' watching him armwrestling regardless of his manners (I might cringe though).  However, free speech allows me and others to comment on people's behaviour at, for example, an armwrestling training session.

Personally I’m not concerned with Khaleds behavior. I’m certain that he will be a perfect gentleman if he ever makes it to the USA for collaboration.

Since when was being a perfect gentleman required in US comps. :D  He could yell, scream, slam the table, argue with the ref, stall for ages, complain and trashtalk the opponent before and during the match, and look like a regular WAL pro.

lol Indeed!

I suppose I should have been more specific.. in a way I’m relating him to Michael Todd.. lots of folks, respectable folks I might add, definitely hate Michael online. But when he’s standing next to them at a tournament they tend to change their mind.

I honestly do not believe the in person shifts in behavior are because anyone is afraid of him. It’s because he’s actually a pretty good dude once you are face to face with him. Most do leave saying they like him and that he’s a good dude after meeting him in person. Even if they hated him before online.

while I’m not exactly a superstar at any strength sport, I too have the exact same effect on people. Hated online, but then when I act the exact same way and say the exact same stuff in person, literally no one gets offended. Much like Michael, I don’t think they are afraid of me either.

Khaled will be no different. I think most that meet him in person do like him from what I can tell.

 

but yes, WAL seems to be much like the WWE in marketing. Lol
