The 24" pythons! Hulkster definitely made me pick up my first weight and I've been training ever since.

I used to pimp a lunch box just like this when I was a kid.

One of the best athletes to ever step into a ring IMO

HHH? Go figure? No offense my man. But the way I see it? The only way he got to the top is by riding other people's coat tails. Where would he be without Shawn? But then again? Where would wrestling be without Shawn? Then HHH hit the lottery with Steph. Love HHH. Really love him. But come on now. How does this guy influence your life?


I read his book and learned a couple things from him that way.  But mainly it was his physique that inspired me to start training.   Sure his political moves may be controversial to some but he go the job done and is able to provide for him and his family.  Not sure if I wouldn't do the same. 

Lance Storm would be a very close second if not tied for 1st.

Right on my man. He did influence my training as well. Looking good these days as well. I wonder why these Wrestlers never put out training videos? Would have loved to watch Hogan train.

me too

Ultimate Warrior had some training videos for sale through his website a while back.
Iíve not seen them personally, but while heís a lot smaller now, heís still in excellent shape and conditioning.

Scott Steiner probably could have made a lot of money selling training DVDís.

Concur.
If "The Least Electrifying Man In Sports" Jay Cutler can sell bb dvd's, you know very well that fans would pay $$ to see Cena, Batista, Sean Waltman, etc.

The Muscle & Fitness with Vince in 2006 was well received.


You also bring up an excellent point:
Itís hard to imagine why McMahon hasnít done this, but is inducting Koko B. Ware into the HOF.

Why didn't Vince ever do this? I mean even now? A training series like BFTO. Show every Superstar training one body part. It would be very motivational to alot of people.

Until the old man figures this out and/or needs the money...

Sean Waltman? Where did that one come from? I don't even wanna watch that guy wrestle.  Lets see the Big Show on the flat bench. He probably woundn't even fit on the thing?! Could you imagine how strong Kane must be? I know it's way to late. But imagine the Rabid Wolverine in the gym. That guy was Mr. Intensity!

Well, it took over three weeks, but I'd given up that anyone would catch that.
Congrats.

I also heard that Benoit used an interesting variation of lat pull-downs for strengthening the neck.
Advisable to use caution with that one.

No one influenced me more than MANTAUR.

The half man half beast.

He made me turn myself into a beast
