NEW YORK CITY, Nov. 13, 2013 – “IMPACT WRESTLING” Superstar and five-time CBS “Big Brother” star, Jessie Godderz, known to his fans as Mr. PEC-Tacular, has been tapped to co-host NYC Brand Production’s new co-ed College Arm Wrestling League Championship, “CAWL to Arms” which pits teams of students from rival colleges in exciting and grueling matches to determine the most powerful male and female college arm wrestlers in America. “CAWL to Arms” will air on ESPNU and ESPN2 beginning in 2014.

According to “CAWL to Arms” creator and executive producer Rob “Bucky” Buchalter, “Mr. PEC-Tacular is the perfect choice to co-host our new College Arm Wrestling League Championship. He is the youngest two-sport professional athlete in history, and just a year after his ‘IMPACT WRESTLING’ debut, Mr. PEC-Tacular and his wrestling partner Robbie E. recently won the ‘IMPACT WRESTLING World Tag Team Titles at Bound For Glory, one of wrestling’s biggest Pay-Per-View events of

the year. Jessie’s a real rising star, and we are thrilled to have him join us as a co- host.”

The first “CAWL to Arms” match-ups include students from Penn State versus students from Rutgers and students from University of Connecticut versus students from Syracuse University. The winning teams from those match-ups will face each other in a final Sudden Death round to determine the 2014 “CAWL To Arms” Grand Champions. The winning team members will share a $10,000 cash prize.
