Late last Thursday Combat Armsports received a call from the producers of Saturday Night Live. They were preparing for their upcoming show and needed an Armwrestling Table for a skit with host Dwayne Johnson (The Rock). We were more than happy to fulfill their request and had it at the doorstep of 30 Rockefeller Plaza in NYC by 10:00 am the next day.
We waited in anticipation for the show and stayed up late to make sure we didn't miss a thing. Sadly, the skit didn't make Lauren Michael's final cut and the skit didn't air.
Combat Armsports was honored to have been selected to provide several armwrestling tables for the Pro Football Armwrestling Championship in Las Vegas. The event was held over the week of April 5th - 9th in two different locations inside the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino.
The preliminary matches were held in the world famous Ka theater where Ka Cirque du Soleil performs. Combat Armsports created a custom table which tied in perfectly with the unique stage. The final rounds of the competition were held in the Hakkasan Night Club. The club was filled with many VIPs such as UFC Fighters Tito Ortiz, Stipe Miocic, Forrest Griffin, Michael Bisping, and Paige Vanzant among others. Training was provided by none other than the worlds most elite armwrestlers and trainers Travis Bagent, Michael Todd, Devon Larratt, Luke Kindt, Ray Cote, and Reza Dilmaghanian.
The event was a pleasure to be a part of. The 30+ NFL players competed hard and were impressive to watch. Leading the Gold Team to battle was James Harrison and commanding the Silver Team was former running back Marshawn Lynch. Both teams gave it their all in a war that will be aired on CBS Network through May 27th-28th with the finals on June 3rd.
After learning of the competition, the NFL may seek to fine the players involved for breaking a long established rule against appearing for promotional purposes in a casino. The competition organizers assured all involved that they are working with the NFL to resolve the matter which has blown up in various news outlets since the event.
