It was probably a work, a fake armwrestling match for promotional purposes. The strongman Rene Golem Richter would have crushed the nonetheless freaky strong Ronnie Coleman in a real arm wrestling challenge. Ronnie can’t risk the injuries and the embarassment. I think the strongman Rene Golem Richter refused to lose to Ronnie Coleman so he compromised and accepted the draw scenario. Just my two cents.
For further proof, go take a look at the strongman website: http://www.renegolemrichter.com
