Monster Arm Wrestling | Iowa State Fair 2012

October 21, 2019


YOU GET TO MEET THE PEOPLE.
YOU GET TO HAVE FUN. IT’S PRETTY EXCITING JUST TO
WATCH SOMEBODY ARM WRESTLE, SEE HOW GOOD THEY CAN DO.
AND WHEN YOU GO UP TO THAT TABLE, YOU HATE THAT PERSON FOR
THREE MINUTES. THE TABLE IS TIPPIN’, SCREAMIN’.
IT’S JUST YOU KNOW AN ADRENALIN RUSH FOR ME.
ONCE YOU GET IT IN YOUR BLOOD, YOU CAN’T STOP.
YOU GET TWO GUYS THAT REALLY KNOW WHAT THEY’RE DOING, YOU’RE
IN IT FOR A WAR. YOU’RE GONNA SEE A PRETTY
AWESOME MATCH. THERE’S JUST SO MUCH TECHNIQUE
INVOLVED. IT’S HARD TO EVEN EXPLAIN. HI, MY NAME IS JAKE STANTON.
I’M FROM SHERATON, IOWA. LIKE YOU CAN SEE THIS GUY HERE,
HE’S JUST DIGGING HIS WRIST IN AND ELBOW GETTING IN THE PAD.
NICOLE KELZER. I’M FROM BURLINGTON, IOWA, I WAS
ALWAYS INTERESTED IN DOING ARM WRESTLING.
JUST KIND OF A FUN EXPERIENCE TO DO. MY NAME IS GARRETT SNYDER.
I’M FROM ADEL, IOWA. YOU CAN HAVE SOME LITTLE GUY
THAT DOESN’T HAVE THAT MUCH MUSCLE, BUT HE GETS THE RIGHT
SET, HE’S GONNA SLAP YOU DOWN. I STILL THINK ANYBODY CAN WIN
IT. IF YOU DON’T GET THEM TIRED,
THEY’RE PROBABLY NOT GOING TO GET NOWHERE.
SOMETIMES THE MATCH MIGHT LAST THREE MINUTES. YOU’LL GET ‘ER DONE. WE ARE HERE TO SUPPORT OUR
BROTHER, JOSH GORDON, DOWN THERE.
YOU KNOW, THE ENERGY HERE IN THE STATE FAIR, IT’S THE BEST FAIR
EVER. MY NAME IS BRYAN WILLETT AND I’M
FROM OSKALOOSA, IOWA. THIS YEAR I’M TRYING TO WIN
THREE CLASSES, THREE WEIGHT CLASSES.
NOBODY’S EVER DONE THAT BEFORE, SO I THINK THE SUPERMAN KIND OF
INSPIRES ME DOING SOMETHING THAT’S NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE.
I GUESS IT’S BRINGING ME STRENGTH TODAY.
THAT’S WHAT I’M HOPING FOR SO. I’M FROM BUSEEY, IOWA.
MY NAME IS JAKE GREEN. I KIND OF GOT STARTED IN ON IT
BECAUSE BACK IN 79′ AND 80′ WHEN THEY FIRST CAME OUT WITH THIS
MACHINE MY DAD WAS A NATIONAL CHAMPION, AND HE WAS THE ONLY
GUY EVER TO WIN BOTH ARMS. CRAIG GREEN, BUSSEY, IOWA,
FOUR-TIME NATIONAL CHAMPION BACK IN 82′, 83’.
NEXT YEAR I’LL WATCH MY SON. IF HE WINS IT THIS YEAR,
EIGHT-TIME STATE CHAMPION. EVERYBODY IS HERE.
IT’S EXCITING. IT’S FUN ONCE YOU START IT, ONCE
YOU START IT, YOU KNOW, YOU START WINNING.
IT’S JUST A GOOD TIME. STEVE BARNS HAS BEEN DOING IT
FOR — EVER SINCE IT BEGAN. LISTENING TO THAT MAN DO THE
GRUNTING AND EVERYTHING JUST GETS ME GOING. WELL, THERE’S LOTS OF REASONS.
I MEAN THE ADRENALINE RUSH. I JUST LOVE DOING THIS. WELL, JUST LOOK AT IT, JUST
COMPETING IN GENERAL IS JUST A GOOD REASON TO DO ANYTHING.
IT IS A GREAT SPORT, COMPETITIVE, AND EVERYBODY’S
FRIENDS. NEVER HAD ANY TROUBLE.
IT’S JUST AN ALL-AROUND GOOD SPORT.
