Is it Ramy's year or will Kai steal the show?

Recommended Posts

There has been some interesting news hitting the bodybuilding world with some new changes to the Mr. Olympia contest held in Las Vegas. With about two months until the show, there is much speculation as to if this will be the year that we see Kai Greene’s return and if Ramy can nail his conditioning and spoil Phil’s 8th Sandow attempt. What say you?

 

Big Ramy Looks HUGE

Bader, over at Oxygen Gym in Kuwait, was kind enough to leak some images recently of Big Ramy during his prep. And from the looks of it, he’s as big as he’s ever been and still very well-conditioned. His absurdly muscular build isn’t anything out of the norm, but he looks to have brought up some of his weaker points and added more of a 3D look that allows his muscles to pop and add a new dimension to his already cartoonish frame.

 

One thing, however, that the Camel Crew is neglecting to show us is Big Ramy from the back. When standing next to Phil, this is where Ramy took some right hooks with criticism. There aren’t many people who can stand next to Mr. Heath these days and hold their own from any pose from the back. Phil worked tirelessly to bring up his lagging back and has transformed it into one of his strong points.

 

With all of that being said, we still have quite a few weeks left before the stage is lit and the oil is applied. It’s anyone’s guess as to how Ramy will come into the show. I still think Ramy looked best (at the Olympia) when he was working with Chris Aceto, but that’s my personal opinion. Can the Camel Crew shed off the last bit of fat Ramy’s holding onto while maintaining his size or will we once again be deflated and post-Olympia be talking about how Ramy missed his mark again? Only time will tell.

 

Don’t Call It A Comeback

I’m not putting much excitement into the thought that this might be the year that Kai Greene steps back on stage – at least according to his social media post hinting at a possible return thanks to a new round of judging where the fans get to vote. While I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Kai breaking it down on an IFBB Pro stage, I’m not so sure his hint at coming back to win the Olympia is going to come to fruition.

 

After stepping away in 2014, it’s hard to not agree that the Olympia and even the Arnold line-ups felt as if they were greatly missing his presence. The fans wanted him. The competition wanted him. Yet, for several years now, Kai has gone down a different path and it didn’t have anything to do with standing on stage in his posing trunks. Kai is an amazing entertainer – possibly one of the best to have ever walked on an IFBB Bodybuilding stage. But, with that much time off from a contest prep, his age, and the fact that the competition has stepped up their game, does he still have enough to impress the judges when in a top 5 line-up? I’m not so sure.

 

Ramy, Winklaar, Bonac… and of course Phil, all of them on any given day can potentially beat Kai. So, if The Predator decides to come back, he could very easily turn into the prey of many competitors.

 

But let’s be real for a second, Kai only wants to go back to the Olympia stage with one goal in mind, and that’s dethroning the champ, Phil Heath. Kai isn’t going up on that stage to be voted on by the fans as the “People’s Champ.” And quite honestly, I don’t have any doubt in my mind that if Kai stepped back on stage at the Olympia that he wouldn’t be crowned the “People’s Champ.” The fans love Kai.

 

Something else that I have been thinking about is even if Kai were to come back AND WIN, would he then ride off into the sunset, never to appear in the IFBB again? Or, would he stick it out and continue competing at that point? Would a win light the fire in him to get back into the competition world? Personally, I don’t think so.

 

And again, I really don’t see him coming back for the Olympia – even if it’s wishful thinking on everyone’s part. I would say this though, if Kai came back for this year’s Olympia it could very easily be the top-grossing show from ticket sales in history. Combine his comeback to potentially dethrone Phil, the question mark with Ramy, and who knows what Winklaar or Bonac will come in looking like, it could turn into one of the most exciting Olympia’s in history regardless.

 

I wonder if the IFBB and Jim Manion will give/send Kai another invite to the show or if they have moved on from the Kai craze? From their point of view, they’d be foolish to not try to get him in the line-up. Overall, regardless, I can’t wait for this year’s show. Phil has an opportunity to continue his reign and further his quest to make bodybuilding history

Phil is the champ but i would love to see the cocky MF taken down! Rammy is impressive this year and Kai deserves the crown the man has put his time in. My good friend bumped into Kai in Brooklyn recently Kai spent a half an hour with him talking about his road to being the champ...

Me either for some reason.I've always been a Ramy fan since he started but as I posted Roelly is looking awsome!! I've never saw anyone take Beast Mode as far as he has.And to be on so much and keep his abs like they are is rare these days!!

WOW, saw this thread and had to bring it back!!!

Who would have thought , 2 years ago , that Phil would be knocked out by Rhoden, who people weren't really talking about. And who would have thought that in 2020, we would see the return of Phil and thast we would see Ramy just steam roll over him, in spectacular fashion.

Makes you think that there is an Any Given Sunday type of thing that does happen from time to time in Body Building.

But The BIG question, will Phil try and go for another Olympia or will he just hang it up and stay with 7 Sandow's ??? Will Ramy come back in 2021 and solidify his victory from 2020?? Will Curry come back even bigger and more conditioned and recapture his 2nd victory. Or will Rhoden finally come back after all the legal troubles and show the world that he wasn't a one hit wonder.

I just hope we have a great year and an even greater Olympia !!!

This same question came up today on Heavy Muscle Radio W/ Dave Palumbo, and everyone's answer was the same, Kai Is Done !!! Ramy is Just hitting his Prime, so if Kai Greene was to ever think of making a comeback, It's just too late. There's probably going to be the Million Dollar Question in the back of his mind on " What If " !! But who knows, maybe he has found peace with his decision to never have kept going for it. He does have it in his Recon1 contract to do another show, maybe in 2021 ???

There have been plenty that continued on pass the quoted prime time. I think he has the potential to get a few more in him.

I honestly think its all about  how much weight does the name carry.   It's all about Money.   If Kai cannot command we he once did from advertisers.   He is pretty much done.

Agree @Aton, he’s a genetic freak so I’m not going to say that it’s impossible for him to come in big and shredded as fuck, but it’s only if he wants too. 
I think he had the best chance in 2019, but he skipped that, but you can’t ever count him out, the dudes an enigma to say the least.

It would be cool to have him come back tho.
