I always felt Mentzer had a beautiful physique....so did Robby Robinson....Arnold was a giant.....but lets face it....The bodybuilding establishment was not going to let Arnold go out a loser....he had too many backers and his personality was so forceful no one would DARE vote against him...who could vote against Arnold and then face him afterwards???

Bill Pearl told Arnold after the show "If I were judging, I had you in 5th place".

nice bump on this topic.

Go look at the topic I just created on this.

Anyone who argues against Arnold is a fucking twat.  LOL @ some of the replies from 2006.  Arnold shits on them all.

Arnold looked great for the 80 Olympia!!!

Not bad for being out of the sport for 5 years.

He had a good upper body. From the waist down, he was not in the top 6. Was good/for him they didn't count legs as much, he did have a good chest/biceps combo, him and Roy were 1 and 2 in those show muscles.
