I think Vince Taylor's success as a pro is limited by - and defined by - the era in which he competed.

He'll be remembered as one of the top guys, in the top era in the sport's history (early 1990s).

However, if he competed TODAY at his peak, he'd be top 2 Olympia without trying.  Unfortunately, he was up against Cormier, Levrone, Ray and Wheeler in their primes, battling for the runner up slots to yates and haney.

Lots to talk about the top 5 placings at the Europa Pro contest for the Men's Open.

I dunno if he'd be top 2 olympia today... certainly top 6... they don't build em like that anymore.

How do you mean he was underrated?  He's won the third most shows, was endorsed even past his prime, and got tons of pub from the time after he broke out his terminator routine for the first time at the O.  In an era with the likes of Haney, Dorian, Flex, Levrone, Labrada, Ray, Flex, Francois, Cottrell, and others I think he got about the right amount of respect and pub (maybe even more because of his likeablility). 

I agree with you that he's a great bodybuilder, just not that he was underrated.  Everyone knew they were up against a great competitor who would come in good condition, and win over the crowd.

The guy has the 3rd most wins of all time... yet these other guys (levrone, ray, wheeler, cormier) are almost always mentioned first - and they're from the same era.

WHY DOES VINCE TAYLOR GET NO RESPECT? (POLL)

He just went on PBW radio and sounded like he feels betrayed.  He won a million more shows than Rich Gaspari and 3rd most pro wins in history and for some reason no body talks about him as one of the greats. 
Is this because of:
 

A. He really wasn't that good.

B. Race

C. Guys with big mouths like Shawn get more respect than they should.

D. ?

C.

I met Vince at a few shows in the early 2000's. Great guy, humble as can be and sported a classic physique well into his 40's. He is one of the all time greats, no doubt about it.

thats weird, i didnt know he had that many pro wins............for some reason he kinda flies under the radar

i think his age has to do with it too, with the younger generation.....most only know the guys who won the olympia

like after lee haney, no one, who is in their 20-30, know all that many guys who competed back then............rich gaspari wouldnt be talked about as much, and he isnt really, other then he is one of the supplement scam big-wigs shyster criminals



btw..........who has the most pro wins.........ronnie?

who has the second most?

Maybe he was too humble and not a loud mouth whiner like some others and decided not to open a supplement company. He is probably the one with the best physique from all the pros of his time and age.

He competed 3-4 years ago and looked amazing, I think he placed 11th at '06 O.

Vince is easily one of the 10 or 15 best bodybuilders ever! He looks great even today at 52 while many of his fellow bodybuilders are no longer competitive! Just my 2 cents.

its actually calmed down a little now, (that or guys learned how to use it more subtly)........five or six years ago there were pros walking around with all kind of funky parts



but then again, BFG said the other days hany rambod's whole FST-7 protocol is based on site injections with SEOs..........so who the fuck knows, apparently flex wheeler used to have plastic surgeons do hsi injections,. so there are ways to use it without it looking obvious

As crazy as it is to believe, that picture is new, or at least not very old.  It was taken at the 2006 Australia Pro, mere months before Vince turned 50:
