Sad but true. If Victors legs look even a little messed up from the operation, he might never recover. Victor vs Ronnie at the Arnold
and I think the judges will instantly have that perception now. If/when ronnie comes back, the judges aren't going to stop and look at his sick garden hose biceps or quads to see if they've returned to teh old size. No, they're going to be jumping to see if the lat and tricep are still fcked.
At the highest levels of the sport, most guys onstage are near-perfect when it comes to genetics and conditioning and muscle. I think it's far easier for judges to 'pick off' 2-3 guys right off the bat due to weaknesses, then sort thru who's left. I think Vic will be a victim of that, always picked right off and relegated to 3rd instantly behind dex/heath.
