Well anyway, I didn't order Joe Weider's Mr. Olympia 2004 live, but I did catch it on INHD a few nights back. Triple H helped host the new challenge round, which was very exciting.
The top six contestants(Gunter Schlierkamp, Markus Ruhl, Gustavo Badell, Dexter Jackson, Jay Cutler and Ronnie Coleman) all got to challenge each other in a pose, but could only pick one pose twice. Gunter didn't win a single pose. Trips taunted him by saying that the smile isn't an official pose. It all came down to one pose, Ronnie vs Jay. Ronnie had. only lost one pose(an Ab and Thigh to Dexter Jackson) while Jay hadn't lost one. Ronnie called a Back 'Game Over' Lat Spread. It was pretty close, but Ronnie came out on top. He is just that much bigger than all of his competition.
You really gotta watch this in HD, I don't think a regular broadcast can do it justice. So, am I the only BB fan here?
EDIT:Jay did lose a previous posedown to Ronnie, but I can't remember what the pose was (I am guessing Ab-Thigh)
It would've had to have been five rounds of a pure slugfest to live up to the hype, so in that sense, the fight was disappointing. Even still, it was a good mano-a-mano bout that really put both men's styles into full view.
