Louisville Championship Arm Wrestling—LCAW to its growing fan base—is a performance art theatre project modeled on professional wrestling—the clash of good guys versus bad guys, and the serial storytelling. - HowlRound.com

The characters include Emperor Galactus, a scheming, larger than life villain, the Dungle sisters, a pair of teeny-bopper cheerleaders, and Geno Grigiot, a wealthy wine-loving oddball.  Each takes a comedic slant, exaggerating their on-stage personalities while humanizing their human frailties.  - Louisville Courier-Journal

It was meant to be a one-time show.  Energized by the crowd response, the company knew it would be a shame to turn back, and refocused their energy entirely on building the LCAW brand.  - LEO Weekly
