El Wingador To Take On Arm Wrestling Championship Hopeful On WIP
In a true battle of David vs. Goliath, Bill Simmons, the competitive eater affectionately known as El Wingador, will square off against Eric Komar, a 5’8” competitive arm wrestler, as he warms up for the Arm Wrestling World Championships in Budapest, Hungary. The event will be broadcast live on Thursday, August 10th, on SportsRadio 94WIP at 9:20am EST.
There’s something quite noteworthy to this story: Komar’s journey is even more remarkable because he suffers from Spina Bifida. His story will be profiled in a documentary titled Hands Down, the brainchild of Christopher Bruce, owner of Bruce Productions. Bruce got the idea after talking with a friend who met Komar at a recent Arm Wrestling Tournament in Philadelphia. According to Bruce, his passion is “bringing life to my own and others stories through video and film projects.”
Simmons, who recently won Chickie’s and Pete’s Crab Fry Eating Contest, released his autobiography, “Snow On The Barb Wire” last November. Using the El Wingador moniker, he is a five-time Wing Bowl champion.

Short Description: “Hands Down – An Arm Wrestling Documentary Journey” features an up and coming arm wrestler suffering from Spina Bifida, Eric Komar, and long time US Pro, Chris Myers, as they set their sights on the World Championships in Budapest. Through Eric and Chris’s adventure, the audience gets a unique look into the subculture and world of Arm Wrestling through a story of dedication, perseverance and overcoming our personal limitations.

Funds collected through this campaign will also go towards the filming and completion of the documentary capturing the whole journey while offering us all an opportunity to get lost in the world of Arm Wrestling far beyond our lunchroom tables in grade school.
