Travis is great for the sport and I as well as many others hope he returns to his old form.
I definitely agree, he was tremendous for the sport, always so much fun to watch, and when he is in form and in shape, he's untouchable left handed IMO that's why I would love to see him face Cyplenkov.
Man, if Travis and Alexey were to come back at full force...things would get very interesting!!
Alexey definitely will be back and I can't wait for that, but as for travis who knows? :/ both are absolute monsters and great rivals, I wonder if alexey will be back to his dominant form before he left or is he going to be even stronger than ever when he returns

I doubt Travis was genuine about hating the sport. But I am also pretty sure he has chosen to dedicate himself to more important things like family, work, etc. We have all witnessed his passion and I have a feeling we haven't seen the last of him.
Alexey though, I am waiting to see what he has to offer after all this time.

Lets be real, Travis is about $$$ and if armwrestling suddenly becomes a good place to make some REAL money Travis would be back in a heartbeat!!! He's good enough to walk in untrained and be top 5 lefty and top ten righty, money talks! And right now he's looking in places where he can actually make some.
But I agree he is great for the sport, as much as people love to see a hero win, they love to see the villain lose! Maybe more!

" I hate Armwrestling." Can have a different meaning for different people.
I DO hate this ". Sport." Now do I hate the people, h e l l NO, well a couple...lol, do I hate the competitive side of it, NO, do I hate the training and the practicing,NO, etc etc, u get the pt.
BUT there is much about this " sport" I do hate..
Travis will NEVER come back, unless the $ is right. Even IF the $ was right, the match would have to be right for him to actually train AND practice in order for him to CARE enough. Cause there have been tines, I won't mention when, lol. Where the $ was RIGHT AT THE TIME, but not the match up..meaning he only agreed cause of the $ NOT the person he was pulling, or the meet, or if he won, cause it was only for the $.....
