HISTORY'S MOST SUCCESSFUL ARMWRESTLER



Why John Brzenk is The Greatest Armwrestler of All Time?... Eric Roussin explains it very well in his newest article on The Armwrestling Archives.

"John Brzenk is the most successful armwrestler in the history of the sport. In his 35-year competitive career, it is estimated he has won 500 titles. A handful of other pullers have won hundreds of titles, but in terms of major professional titles, no one is even close to him. It is unlikely that we will ever see someone build such a lengthy and impressive armwrestling résumé.

Below is a chronology of MOST of the titles that John Brzenk has won. It includes class titles, overall titles, and supermatch wins. It begins with his first known major title in 1982 and ends with his most recent one in 2015. The list includes almost 400 titles won on five continents. There are certainly other titles -- should anyone be aware of any, please contact me and the list will be updated."
