I was thinking the same thing. Wolf's name is hiding near the bottom of the list. He could & should win that show.

No, it was replaced with the Mens BB 212lb category.

Looks like it is going to be a cool lineup and event.

See you there.

If they give that trophy to the gnome one more time I hope Wolf picks him up and shoves him into a trash can head first.

Depends on what Rhoden's back looks like. And if Cedric decides to actually come in shape for once.

Curious to see what Quincy Winklaar looks like and how he will fare in the 212s.

I agree with you there - womens pole fitness cool!  And it is most definitely not easy.  It is extremely hard to do some of those moves. 

50 events for the Arnold Weekend this year...
