Michael is arguably the most successful Heavyweight arm wrestler in history! He has won 21-World Titles & 36-National Titles (over 6 weight divisions)! He has become the World Champion of every major Professional League.
His Armwrestling career started at a local county fair in 1990. After taking 3rd place, he quickly went home, built a table, and then began hosting events at the local Boy’s club. He quickly became the #1 in his state & started competing outside of Arkansas & making a name for himself!
Michael’s competitive career started in martial arts after seeing The Karate Kid. He told his father that he wanted to take Karate. He earned his black belt in 1987 at the age of 14. Growing up, Michael always wanted to be on TV. It wasn’t until he was hanging out with a friend on the set of the CBS’s show SWAT when a director saw him & said he would be perfect for the upcoming episode (season 3 episode 2 BAD FAITH)!
Michael was heavily recruited to the WAL in 2017 shortly after Michael became the Heavyweight Champion by winning the double-elimination tournament while not being seeded. He defeated the top 3 seeds on his way to the title! He has defended his World Title each year since!
As the reigning Heavyweight World Champion, Michael is always looking for his next challenge!!
