Pain Fonda

Owabunga! Meet PAIN Fonda, Durham’s own recently fired fitness instructor (true story). She has some jazzy hip hop moves, illin’ 80s music in her heart, and Aqua Net for days! After being fired from a local gym and replaced by a Zumba Airhead, PAIN is totally out for blood! She is ready to kick the competition in the “firm Fannie” and make you disappear like Richard Simmons.



Although she is small, Tinkerhell is mighty! Unlike her half-sister who tosses pixie dust to make people fly, Tinkerhell unleashes her “pixie disgust” on people who make the world an unjust and scary place. With a penchant for mean people and small-minded, narcissistic, lying politicians, she’s prepared to unleash her wrath and stand up for others!



Wonder Wombmyn

Wonder Wombmyn! Defender of reproductive justice. Able to leap tall policy challenges with a single hurdle. Unafraid of old white judges and bullies with orange hair. Determined to build a world where all people can decide if and when they chose to reproduce and can raise their children safely.


Stone Cold Jane Austen

Jane Austen, a kind and courageous author from the rustic British countryside, became smitten with both Darcy’s shy charm and unwavering sensitive sensibilities. How can a girl not succumb to the throes of passion? However the snobbish Caroline Bingley, desperate to win Darcy’s affections for herself, started a firestorm of rumors certain to diminish Jane’s reputation. Jane, is determined to clear her name and prove her love to the dashingly brutish Mr. Darcy himself, by challenging all the ladies of the nearby countryside to an arm-wrestling duel. As winner she will take all as Stone Cold Jane Austen, bitches!!

Hermione Danger

Hermione Danger is half witch, half Muggle, and whole badass. Quick-witted and ready for a challenge, she often finds herself rescuing the cis, heterosexual men in her life from their poor decisions. Her immense upper body strength comes from lifting heavy books while studying. She will send her opponents to the Deathly Hollows and, after celebrating with too many Goblets of Fire, has been known to accidentally reveal her Chamber of Secrets.


Murder Theresa

Born and raised deep within the Barrio, Theresa learned to defend herself early on. After her 1,666 suspensions from school her mother sent her to the convent to become a nun. But it didn’t take long for Theresa to start causing trouble. So the church and community decided to banish her to a place where no one would know her. A little place called Durham, North Carolina. Little did Durham know that wherever Murder Theresa went, a string of broken bones and broken hearts followed.



Growing up, people always questioned Domino’s superpowers. Her classmates would taunt her and say, “Luck is not a superpower!” Mediocre X-force members would condescendingly ask her, “Do you shoot luck lasers out of your eyes?” People just didn’t get it. One day she decided she’d had enough. She picked up a riding crop and Domino-trix was born, bending the laws of nature, the rules of karma, and the will of men for days to come.


Ruth Bader Gunsberg

The Notorious RBG is here to diss(ent) and take names. Ruth Bader Gunsberg will uphold the 2nd amendment–the right to bear HER arms and kick ass! She’s 86 years young and not to be underestimated. If you’re up on her docket, she’ll remand you and make you regret the minute you stepped up for your rebuttal!

Cecil the Dung Beetle

Cecil the Dung Beetle is here to help deal with the massive amounts of shit that our country is crumbling under. She’s only one (although ridiculously large) dung beetle, but you should thank her for cleaning up in such a non-glamourous way.

Whiskey Neat

Whiskey Neat may be small but don’t underestimate her. She’s potent. She’ll have you down for the count before you can say “Jack Daniels.” Whiskey Neat comes from a long line of bootleggers and grew up slinging barrels. Don’t tell her to act like a lady. If you find yourself facing Whiskey, pack your liquid courage. She pins to win.

Angela Slamsbury

She’s back!  This time with some Positive Moves.  A long career of acting in murder mysteries plays second fiddle to Angela Slamsbury’s real passion: staying fit while wearing pearls.  Those 5 lb. dumbbell workouts keep a youthful spring in her step and will definitely help her prance her way to victory on the LUEWWD stage…and look good while doing it

Jane Sleyre

Jane Sleyre was a poor governess with an independent streak.  When she found out that her fiancée was two-timing her, she dumped that loser and Victorian gender roles.  She devoted her life instead to arm-wrestling her way across the moors and championing the literary life with her roaming band of belletristic and bellicose belles.  Beware, non-readers; these curatorial cataloguers are comin’ atcha!  You’d best beware of these lurid librarians …

She-Hulk Hogan

She-Hulk Hogan, the burly daughter of a famous professional wrestler not to be named, was raised up in the ring. She learned from a young age just how important it is to rip one’s shirt off aggressively while stomping all over the competition. She takes the LUEWWD stage to show her dad- and everyone else- that ladies can be terrifying wrestlers with questionable fashion taste, too!

Anno Misdemeanor

Anno Misdemeanor grew up the Great North in a land called Minnesnowta where hockey is life and salad means anything with mayo in it. Off the ice, Anno drank pop, ate pancakes alongside Prince, and played duck duck grey duck. On the ice, she skated circles around her opponents and made the penalty box look pretty. She needs four refs to hold her back while she sets down her stick to begin crushing fists and taking names!


Punky Bruiser

As the sun set on colorful 80s fashion, Punky fled her posh Chicago digs and made her way south, thumbing rides in pickup trucks with her trusty dog, Brandon. Somewhere along the way, she began arm wrestling for cash and meals and earned the name Punky Bruiser. Here on the LUEWWD stage Punky Bruiser is busting elbows and bringing back her iconic 80s attire.

Hellen Wheels (LUEWWD XV Queen of the Losers)

Kicked out of every roller derby bout she’s ever played in for unsportsmanlike conduct, now Hellen Wheels is rolling up on LUEWWD to prove – once and for all – that derby girls are the baddest broads in Durham.


The Lumber Jane from Maine

Cut from the lumber jack show from being too openly environmentalist, Lumber Jane has been wandering the Maine woods and manually re-planting full grown trees ever since. She came to North Carolina to study the southern pines, and has stayed test her axe swinging arms against the best wrestlers Durham has to offer.

Scooby Doom

For as long as she can remember, Scooby Doom has been traveling the country with this gang, solving mysteries and arm-wrestling bad guys right into jail. Scooby Doom enjoys long walks, chasing squirrels (and ghosts… and her tail), and saving her friends from trouble at the last second.

Sister Resistor doubles as the Bell’s Brewery apostle of craft beer and a one woman crusader of resistance. Sister Resistor spends much of her time traveling to our coastal state, spreading the word of Bell’s and infusing her followers with hops and the spirit of justice and social action. Behold the power of Sister Resistor’s words and the might of her arms.

Snow White and the Savage Dwarves (LUEWWD XV Durham Diva)

The prince never came, he was too busy swiping right looking for his Tinderella. So after many years of much needed beauty sleep and years of working as a housemaid for seven very short men, Snow White awoke with a vengeance. Snow White and her savage dwarves ruthlessly attacked the castle with their pickaxes, ridding it of her evil stepmother. And then began their raids of the surrounding kingdoms with Snow White leading the army. Snow White and her army took over all the kingdoms by force leaving Snow White the true ruler and leader of the land.

LUEWWD I Champion Monster Cookie is back to defend her title. Monster Cookie is a bit of a local legend. We know that she is a woman of the world who is frequently jet setting to South Africa, Louisiana and her homeland at the heart of Mecklenburg County. It’s not clear how she landed here in Durham but rumor has it that she came in a swirling storm of pink and black crinoline dancing the tarantella on bar tops from Charlotte to Durham.  Legend suggests that it’s wise to leave her story a mystery – but other contestants ought to be aware of three things: 1) she is a fierce and fearless competitor; 2) if her words don’t snap you in half, her arm will; and 3) oatmeal cookies are her kryptonite.

HERcules is pissed off that male historians recorded her in mythology as a man, and thinks that ass Hera probably put them up to it. Having defeated lions, boars, hydra, bulls, and man-eating mares, this demi-goddess is ready for a vacation and thought an arm-wrestling tournament sounded relaxing… plus, Hippolyta’s girdle is getting worn out, and she needs a new belt.


For centuries Medusa has gotten a bad reputation from her unique talent: turning anyone who dared to stare at her into stone. While that part was true, the whole bit about Perseus beheading her was clearly a lie spawned by the jealous Athena who simply felt insecure around Medusa. Now this smokin’ hot Gorgon is re-writing her own ending and it starts with taking down the ladies of LUEWWD.

Nobody knows where Sassy McKlassy came from before she was dropped off at the St. Patrick’s Orphanage for Difficult Girls in Dublin, Ireland, but everyone knew that when they saw her fiery ginger fro coming down the High Street, they had best turn the other way lest they run afoul of her matching fiery temper. By age 12 she had been kicked out of three schools and many more pubs besides. After losing her job at a local whiskey distillery for drinking up the profits she decided to leave the old country, and so, carrying with her a shillelagh as her sole worldly possession, she stowed away on a Russian freighter bound for the United States. On board she honed her already considerable wrestling skills by challenging the stokers and boiler tenders, and by the time she landed, her emerald green eyes were set firmly on winning the LUEWWD 5 title.

Princess Slaya

After Darth Vader destroyed her home planet of Alderaan, Princess Slaya became bitter with the universe. She has her sights on Earth and is actively seeking to overtake the earthlings and claim the planet as her own. She has vowed to crush any opponent that gets in her way. Disgusted by human society and their insipid thoughts, she has built brain washing robots of superior intelligence to support her on the mission. They look and appear like Snookie to ensure that all of the mindless morons of earth will pay attention and succumb to THE POWER OF PRINCESS SLAYA!


The mysterious, but sultry younger sister of Splinter, Splint-Her-Face has toured most of Western Europe, Asia, and parts of the Congo “splintering the arms of opponents” on the World Arm Wrestling Tour.  Not just a talented martial arts/arm-wrestling rat, her other awards include “Best Digestion” in the NYC Beauty Contest, as well as numerous appearances in Electrolysis commercials.  Hungry for a major win on the East Coast, she’s aching to “splint off the arms of her opponents and use them for BBQ style ribs.” Watch out, she bites!


Breelzabub was born in the very far north, but was soon banished to the south for causing too much trouble.  Legends say she arm wrestled God for control of heaven and won, but preferred the hot south to the cold north.  She now tempts the good people of Durham with promises of alcohol, physics and loose women.  We all knew the devil would be blond.

The Ringmaster

It was a muggy night in the darkest swamp in the land. There was a wicked moon hanging high in the stars with the sound of a child’s cry riding through the trees on the tail of the wind. A baby sprung up out of the murky water and was taken in by the swamp oysters. They were tough but a musical bunch…She was raised on swamp goo and alligator milk until her teeth were strong enough to bite through snake skin and all the other creatures in the pond…she even ate the oysters. As she grew she learned the ways of the world and longed for a life on the road. So, with no other attributes than brute animalistic strength, she wrestled chimpanzees for cash. Along the way she met a few freakishly interesting, um, people and formed a traveling carnival. The Ringmaster and her debauched crew have traveled all the way from Disney World to unknown lands and have returned to America to battle the champion.

Cat ‘O Nine Tails

Cat ‘O Nine Tails is a yowling, feral stray who settled in Durham after years of prowling the woods. She and her pack have been seen traveling the streets, late at night, looking for some well-meaning animal lover to rough up. Don’t cross this kitty—her claws will come out!!

Sustainable Sue

Sue fell out the back of the truck when she was 7, right in front of the county dump. She sought shelter under a cardboard box and learned to use #5 containers to collect water to drink with the edible garbage. When the garbage trucks crushed her home and cisterns, she went on a crusade. She used every ounce of her body, every INCH of her body, to fight for recycling so other kids could survive in the dump. Now she’s ready to fight YOU with her one good arm!

Little Big Red

Let’s get Little Big Red’s story straight. Grandmother was never sick and there sure as heck wasn’t any chicken soup in the basket Little Big Red was carrying. Little Big Red went over the river and through the woods to KICK SOME ASS. With one toss of her ax, she split a hunter’s gun in half before he could murder the young wolf family living there. The hunter ran off, terrified at the strength of this one little girl. Now, Little Big Red and her Hoodlums take care of anyone who needs her protection…or anyone who challenges her to an arm wrestling contest.

Plishia da Black Panther was raised in an unknown African jungle, eating only snakes, lions, and dirt. She came to America as a mail order bride only to be lied to and cheated on. Now she’s out to punish all women that are not plus size or who look like the shank who stole her beloved Wilber….the only problem is she’s  never actually seen her. Thus she punishes all American looking women just to make sure!!!

Phoenix Rising

Phoenix Rising was blessed upon the Carolina Phoenix Women’s Football team in 2007 where she immediately tackled every person in sight. Soon, opponents realized the only way to stop her force was to break her leg.  Unbeknownst to them, Phoenixes don’t die but are reborn angrier. Phoenix Rising rose from the ashes of bone left behind and began arm tackling every person in sight. Unfortunately for you, she is seeking revenge by breaking arms and she is here today to break yours!

Although she may not have made it to the final round in October, this wrestler is a force to be reckoned with. The crowd has yet to see the crushing, bestial strength of Bama that folks back home shudder to think about.  Contestants, this is Bama’s tournament and you’re standing in her way.


Zap was a wildcard in October and made it all the way to the championship round only to fall to Phoenix Rising. This former Gladiator and international Jazzercising star is back to win that elusive belt.

So she cut her hair short to “pass” and punched out all the local boxers. When those boys realized they were beaten by a LADY, they tried to run her out of town. However, Mary’s love of Durham was too strong to leave. Defiantly, Mary wandered the streets jobless and unable to box. Then one day she stumbled across a poster on a light pole: LUEWWD.

The Red Menace

Born and raised in the secret passageways of the Great Wall of China, The Red Menace spent her free time arm wrestling dragons for fortune cookies. When she had beaten every dragon in China, she crossed the Pacific in search of more challenging opponents. Other contestants beware: The Red Menace has a black belt in ninja arm wrestling skills and dragon blood running through her veins.

Hardcore Heidi

Born in Chicago, Hardcore Heidi was snatched from her home and whisked off to West Virginia by a band of mountain cannibals. Unwilling to hunt neighbors for food, Heidi got her grub by wrestling bears and gnawing on coal, until she escaped to freedom by swimming through a piranha infested sewage pipe. Rather than therapy, Heidi channeled her rage into the mosh pits of the mid-80s Appalachian punk. Soon, even the hardcore music scene became too tame. Heidi moved to North Carolina to wrestle alligators, sharks, and studly young surfers in the open water leading her swim teammates to dub her Hardcore.  In her spare time she likes to solve for X.

Raised in the southern pines by a herd of whitetail deer, Bama Banger spent her youth shaking hunters from their tree stands. Now she tramps in Eno River State Park, where the whitetail run free. If you listen closely, you can her bellow TOWANDA into the cool North Carolina air, longing for her home state. But roaming the wild has left Bama Banger with a bestial strength that will topple all opponents.  Beware.

LUEWWD note: in the above picture Bama is reminiscing about her loss to Monster Cookie in LUEWWD I and imagining the taste of sweet revenge.

In her free time Ze Lunch Lady likes to bench press crates of peach preserves and shot put naughty children. She’s ready to burn some cookies, whip some honey, and fry up some calamari!

Bea Yotch

When she’s not goin’ muddin’ in her Ford Expedition XLT or shootin’ squirrels with her bb gun, she’s hustling the local boys and embarrassing them in front of their girl friends. She’s beaten just about every guy in the trailer park and she has the hash marks tattoos on her right bicep to prove it!  She’s ruthless and crude and believes she’ll bulldoze through the LUEWWD lineup and hopes to one day have a shot at taking down monster cookie.  Sarah Palin ain’t got sh*t on… BEA YOTCH!!!!

She has dominated in other events such as freestyle truck pull and set the World Record while competing in the Tri State hay bail jumping championship.

El Pulpo Feroz was born and raised in the small, remote village of San Ramon de Guadalupe east of Cancun, Mexico.

So, you better not be wearing a pink Polo shirt with a popped collar or Ray-Bans on the back of your head…



The Beastal

The Beastal is a first generation South-East Asian American born and bred in the bandit abundant Pirate Country aka Greenville, NC.  She was predestined to roam the rough slums and streets of Mumbai with the rest of her clan residing in her mother-land country of India.  Inevitably, the Beast was unleashed when she had no choice but to learn how to take care of business street-style, using the power of her biceps on the arm wrestling table.  While caring for so many unsightly arm injuries she decided to become a nurse.  She is now a Durham resident whose nursing career has allowed her to mend patients with traumatic injuries to upper extremity muscles after wicked duels. Even though Beastal’s arms are made of pure cold lead, her heart is not.  Being a part of the bad ass arm wrestlin’ ladies allows her to enjoy the pleasure of defeating rivals while simultaneously raising funds for an organization such as the DCRC.  The importance of instilling strength in women is a goal she reaches for and what better way to do so than through womanly strength and pride.  Arm wrestling for such a cause is an empowering and creative means to evoke involvement from local businesses and the community.  This event will raise awareness of the importance of organizations such as the DCRC and the Beastal is proud to have a part in such an affair.

Monster Cookie

Monster Cookie is a bit of a local legend. We know that she is a woman of the world who is frequently jet setting to South Africa, Louisiana and her homeland at the heart of Mecklenburg County. It’s not clear how she landed here in Durham but rumor has it that she came in a swirling storm of pink and black crinoline dancing the tarantella on bar tops from Charlotte to Durham.  Legend suggests that it’s wise to leave her story a mystery – but other contestants ought to be aware of three things: 1) she is a fierce and fearless competitor; 2)if her words don’t snap you in half, her arm will; and 3)oatmeal cookies are her kryptonite.

Raised in the southern pines by a herd of whitetail deer, Bama Banger spent her youth shaking hunters from their tree stands. Now she tramps in Eno River State Park, where the whitetail run free. If you listen closely, you can her bellow TOWANDA into the cool North Carolina air, longing for her home state. But roaming the wild has left Bama Banger with a bestial strength that will topple all opponents.  Beware.

Honeymuff Homewrecker

Honeymuff is a heartbreaking man stealer who has learned to defend herself from angry wives. She has left a string of broken homes along the Eastern seaboard by winning her men in a showdown on the wrestling table. She admits that’s it more about the love of the game and the smell of the fight than it is about the prize.

Lena the Lewd

Lena the Lewd came to be after a prolonged exposure to lutefisk, homogenized milk, and the movie Fargo. You see, Lena was mysteriously separated at birth from her twin and wound up in the hands of the infamously foul Minnesota State Fair Carnies (the most evil of all Carnie folks,) pushing Hotdish-on-a-stick to the masses of Garrison Keillor lookalikes (so very scary) and their Children of the Corn.  After years of being subjected to the conventions of Midwest Nice and its residual effect of stifling of any kind of disorderly demeanors, Lena the Lewd can’t help but now to act out in fits of expletive profanity and brash brute behavior.  F’in uff da! Now the time has come for Lena to confront her obscure origin and sordid upbringing to take on the girl she could have become- The Mountee!

Ze Monsta

Discovered in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, she left a wake of destruction wherever she went. Locally known as ‘Ze Monsta,’ she is a triple survivor of rabies, the black plague, and nuclear winter. It took a team of 20 highly skilled trackers to find, subdue and capture her. With one unfortunate exception, she has remained in captivity ever since. Her continued bondage has rendered her more and more feral…. And it’s that time of the month. Ze Monsta is a woman to be feared.
