Men from all over the region took turns battling head-to-head during the night. One of the main events for the evening was the match up between Travis Bagent, a 17-time world arm wrestling champion, and Dewey McDonald, who played four years in the NFL. For the competition, they played the best two out of three.. where McDonald was victorious.
“It was a great match up. He’s the best in the world for a long time. I’ve known him since I was a little kid so getting to compete against him now, it was kind of dream come true to beat them, so it was good,” said McDonald.
This is the third year they had the Thanksgiving eve wrestling tournament at Benchwarmers.
