Born in Birmingham, Alabama, Sam Armstrong was born on the road and kept on running. Now residing in Gainesville, Georgia, Armstrong has earned his reputation as pound for pound the strongest man in the locker room, including the incredible feat of lifting some of the biggest competitors to come through 901 Wrestling. Armstrong’s athleticism helped him earn Match of the Year in 2017, but championship gold had seemed to elude him. However, the death-defying, shot taking, “high” flyer of 901 Wrestling is always the right moment away from making history and reaching glory, and finally got his moment in April 2019, defeating Dustin Anthony for the 901 Light Heavyweight Championship! The moment would not last, however, as Sam would lose the title in June back to Dustin Anthony, with no rematch granted, sending Sam back to the bottom of contenders. A recent leg injury has sidelined Armstrong but fans know that it will only stop him for so long!
