Just a reminder from my IG feed this morning -lol
My favorite era after the Golden Era. Yates, Levrone, Ronnie, Matarrazzo, Ray (douche but amazing) Nasser, Flex, Cormier… Just a better time. No cell phone d bags in the gym. I think that’s the defining issue these days.
This came up on my feel too, How good is this pic. Dorian looking amazing and good to see other legends like Mike Fancois and Sonny Schmidt sadly both now past.
Francois died ??
Oops I may be wrong. I remember him getting colitis or something similar back in the day. Thought I read somewhere but don’t quote me. Apologies if I got it completely wrong.
Just checked… He lives. He was awesome.
Mike was the first Pro I ever met, and to this day I can recall how friendly and polite he was.
An accomplished IFBB Pro, being helpful, answering countless stupid (uninformed) questions from a young kid, without any attitude, or ego.
I still have my pic with him, and damn do I look young (and small) in it!
That’s bad ass. I’ve met a lot and only one was a douche… Shawn Ray
I met Ronnie Coleman around 2000 - 2001. He was a true freak! Have never seen the likes of him since.
