I have a feeling this will be a breakout year for Beyeke and he will win the Arnold.  There is no way he should lose to anyone on that list if he is at his best.  I'm very interested considering we're not seeing the same ol line up.


Beyeke
Even
Wolf
Dex
Pak
Fouad

Throw that nasty little ogre branch in there unfortuneatly...He won't be winning this one...no fucking way.

Little disappointed No Kai.....

The leg injury to Branch may be a good thing as he can bring his upper body up a bit to match the tree trunks...

Baddell will be interesting

Kai may still compete, we shall see.

Also, the 'breakout star' of the FLEX Pro contest in February that is not on the list may be invited to compete in the Arnold also.

Don't sleep on Centopani...  I see a three way battle between him Wolf, and Warren.  Beyke could do well, but we will see.
