Now, before people freak out and start calling me a Wolf hater, actually read what I'm saying. For the last five years (maybe not including 2010 after his fall in 09), Wolf has been proclaimed as one of the few guys who could contend for the Mr. Olympia. And some people, every year, say he is actually going to win it. And every year, I find myself rolling my eyes. Not because I hate him (which I don't), but because he truly and honestly does not have what it takes to win the Mr. Olympia. His contest placings alone should get that point across: 2007: 5th place 2008: 4th place 2009: 16th place 2010: 5th place 2011: 5th place 2012: 6th place He has never cracked the top 3, and based on how the competition currently looks, he will be lucky to ever accomplish that. How can he possibly win when he is up against equally massive, better conditioned, more balanced and more symmetrical bodybuilders? And those are just the three guys that, in my mind, Wolf could only beat if they were to die in a car crash. All three are insanely consistent (at least, they have been recently), so odds of every one of them coming in off enough for Wolf to beat them is virtually impossible. And then, there are the guys that are somewhat wild cards. Dexter - Has lost his legendary consistency, but when he can nail it (ie. this year) he is still better than Wolf. Victor - Dude suffered a career ending leg injury and was still better than Wolf. I doubt a broken arm and some time off will set him back too far. Cedric - Infinitely more proportionate than Wolf. Cedric has some of that Kai/Phil thing going on. Virtually no weak points. If Wolf and Cedric step on the same stage, I don't see how Wolf can win. Jay - If he comes back next year and hasn't further regressed too much, I think he will still beat Wolf. Oh, and lets not forget about Branch, a guy who Wolf has NEVER beaten. Even if he should have beaten him in the past, it was never by a large margin. And if you can't dominate a mess of a physique like Branch's, what chance in hell do you have of beating a guy like Phil? The odds of winning a Mr. Olympia are so heavily stacked against Wolf it astounds me that people say he will still do it. Wolf will remain a guy who just manages to crack the top 6. And even then, I think those days are numbered.
