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.

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.
