“To me, arm-wrestling is the closest thing to a fistfight, and Travis Bagent is the hardest dude in the room.”

Travis “The Beast” Bagent is no stranger to cockiness in The Pit. But at the World Armwrestling League’s 2015 regional championship on ESPN2 Wednesday night, that swagger got turned on its head.

Nick Zinna, a 33-year-old tank mechanic from Missouri, easily dispatched Bagent in the south right arm super heavyweight competition, shaking up the WAL’s established order and putting the rest of his weight class on notice in the lead up to the WAL 2015 championship.

After referee Bart Wood strapped the two men up early in the match, Bagent blasted out of the gate in the first pull.
