2023 Shaw Classic Will Feature an Arm-Wrestling Event; Pavlo Kordiyaka, Mateusz Kieliszkowski Added to 16-Man Roster – Fitnessnacks

The 2023 Shaw Classic is set for Aug. 19-20, 2023, in Loveland, CO. Not only does it mark the fourth edition of what has become one of the premiere strongman contests each season, but the 2023 edition will also function as the final contest of four-time World’s Strongest Man (WSM) champion Brian Shaw‘s competitive strongman career.

On March 25, 2023, Shaw took to his YouTube channel to announce that each day of competition will feature an arm-wrestling event to allow the strongman athletes time to rest between strongman events. Who the arm-wrestlers will be for each match on each day was not announced, but Shaw shared as many details as he could.

Although none of the strongmen competing in the 2023 Shaw Classic will participate in the arm wrestling event featured at the 2023 Shaw Classic, arm wrestling has historically been featured as a strongman event. At the 1995 WSM contest, the Qualifying stage’s second event was arm wrestling matches. Check it out below:
