Ruhl is huge, I am curious now as to what place he was in last year. The Olympia is the weekend of Sept. 29th.

Since Ronnie anounced his retirement and this will be his last.. I cant see how they wont give it to him so im saying 1. ronnie, 2. jay, 3. victor.

Depending on what we see on the day but based on pics I seen from Jay I think he looks the goods to take it out again.

Ruhl is a monster but I don't think he will win mayber runner up but probably top five. He reminds me of Nasser El Sonbaty who was never able to win the O despite his massive muscles. I agree that Ronnie will probably win since it is his retirement year and the judges might be sympathetic to him unless Jay is able to come in and just overpower Ronnie as to leave no doubt. I like both guys but if Jay deserves to win or even Marcu Ruhl then they should win and I don't care who is retiring!!!

1. Jay Cutler
2. Dennis Wolf (might upset)
3. Ronnie Coleman (way past his prime but still in fantastic shape)

Don't count out the Freakin Rican. As for Ruhl, he is so un proportional. Massive yes, but symmetry matters a lot.

whoops, I guess I did...

I did some research and seem to have made a mistake (first time that ever happened :screwy:)

It turns out the Franco Columbu held two Mr. Olympia titles, one in 1976 and the other in 1981, what a comeback that was!!!

Sorry for the error

i jus hope Victor Martinez puts on a good show, he could b really something if at his best. Cutler should b in the best shape and looking enormous as usual and no doubt win it hands down, but with it being Ronnie's last year, and if he looks good enough, he might bow out with a win. personally, i cant c it happening and Cutler should retain the O

I know Im going to get backlash for this but its seems like even at Victors best his conditioning is off.

I think Cutler will win the event hands down. The only reason they will give to Ronnie is cause of his retirement. I guess i feel the same way most people do. My favorite is still Marcus.

Well, It looks like Cutler won it again!!! Great job on his part. The most surprising to me was Ronnie coming in 4th place, but in my opinion he looked very bloated. There were a lot in here pulling for Martinez... who took a well deserved 2nd.

10. David Henry
9. Jonnie Jackson
8. Gutavo Badell
7. Silvio Samuel
6. Melvin Anthony
5. Dennis Wolf
4. Ronnie Coleman
3. Dexter Jackson
2. Victor Martinez
1. Jay Cutler

just two years ago henry was fighting for the wild card spot

Based on the rankings of the competitors with the exception of Cutler, It does appear that way.

It would be a breath of fresh air if the day of the muscular physique would arrive again, and the movement away from monstrous proportions.
