  • Shawn Rhoden: Next Mr Olympia or Lucky SOB? Commentary by Shawn Ray

    It was barely a year ago that Shawn Rhoden competed in the Mr. Olympia and missed the top 10 final placings— leaving some people to state he “may” have potential one day to be a “good bodybuilder” in a contest like this. However, Shawn had other ideas of what he wanted people to think of his potential— and he displayed them at the 48th Annual Mr. Olympia for the world to see...

    Next Olympia hopeful for sure. I can't discount Cedric.

        Rhoden is awesome and Shawn gave some excellent critiques and FREE business advice. Shawn was spot on that once Rhoden improves his arms and chest, and I feel back thickness as well, he could make a run for the top prize.

          Does Rhoden win the Arnold next year? Assuming Kai doesn't do it, he has to be the front runner right now right? The Arnold is really shaping up. Hopefully it'll be Rhoden vs Cedric vs Evan vs Wolf vs Dexter. That's a hell of a top 5 right there.

              I wanted a case to be made for him to win the '12 O! The back needs to come up though. Due time, he was out of the game for a bit and now he's catching back up! Congrats on 3rd!

                Might not be. I heard if Wolf wins the Arnold Madrid he'll be qualified for the O so I doubt he'd go for the Arnold Classic in the US.



                Also sound business advice from Shawn regarding branding himself. He and every other top 6 athlete can take a page from Shawn's book regarding this.

                  That's a hell of a paycheck to skip out on.

                    That also cuts into his off season in which he could be using to improve for the Olympia and get a higher placing there. If he cuts for the Arnold Classic US and doesn't win it, he won't even have the momentum going into the Olympia. He'll be seen as washed up if he places lower than top 3 at the Arnold.

                      The Arnold Classic is a prestigious show but I'd like to see Shawn skip it. He can improve more if he just focuses on next years Olympia. I agree that he would be the front runner if he did decide to do the show. I don't think we'll ever see Kai do the Arnold again.

                        I hear you, but Rhoden has a much better chance of winning the Arnold than improving on 3rd at the Olympia next year.

                          Shawn said himself he gets better and better the more shows he does so it works in his favor if he does the arnold.

                            Yeah you have a point. With Cutler coming back I'm sure the judges will automatically bump him down a spot no matter how much he improves.
