Kevin interviewed by Phil Heath and Shawn Rhoden about his return.
https://youtu.be/-b52v-MFKUA

Phil and Shawn are making Kevin look pretty small here but they say they are taking him very seriously.

Epix was right. Comparing the best of both, they are very close.
Keven was "way better" in my memory but side by sides show that phil is pretty damn close to kevins best.

Ticket sales and hype. Ifbb doesn't care where he places. Without Kai there is no major threat to Phil and people want a major competitor. Since we always compare the greats of the '90's anyway and Kevin was still willing to give it his all then that's all they need to build controversy. Like you guys said he would be lucky to place top 5 at his age.

Similar in many ways, Id give heath legs, Kevin shoulders. It's hard though as we'll never quite get to see the 90's Kevin actually stood next to heath.

Heath always looks great alone but next to someone has seemed narrow.

Very true

I'm still very interested to see how he looks regardless, it's incredible how he can just turn it up and grow lean. The crazy thing is, even though he's from an era before leverone, I suspect Labrada isn't much older and would also look impressive

Shawn Ray already making excuses for his buddy Kevin. People were comparing his comeback to the 90's comeback of Ferrigno. Shawn trying to dial down peoples expectations..

Quote:
When Lou made his comeback I believe he was 43 years old after 17 years away but never stopped training.

Levrone will be 52 and 13 years removed from the competition stage with lots of time away from the gym to pursue acting and let some injuries heal.

Different day & Time

- Shawn

New Vids of levrone with leg shots...

Anyone that thinks he is going to "grow into this show" is delusional. I will be amazed if he competes at all. "injury" or "family issue" coming soon. He's lost a lot of size in the last month just dieting.

I hate to be negative about it because he's a legend but I just see the whole thing as marketing and bullshit.

what if it backfires and he looks like absolute shit? suddenly people dont have this icon and legend in their memory they have some old guy that looks like piss on stage. how is that going to sell his supplement line? what will that do for his future ability to make money? i think he is making short term money and marketing at the cost of potential long term damage.

So what? 52 or 72 doesn't matter. Let me put it like this. What would you say to yourself if Dorian made a return? Would you not cringe a little inside? Would you not want to remember him as he was or would you be perfectly ok with watching a saggy old man look desperate on stage next to monsters in their prime? I just feel like it's a huge mistake.

I'd be surprised if he doesn't get an injury preventing him from making the stage.

Yeah, just being a realist. His ship has sailed. Kevin is only doing this to win and the only way he beats Phil is if Phil isn't on the stage. Even at Kevin's prime his legs and back weren't in the same league. He can bang from the front all day long but missing legs and back is too much. And no help from a guru either, he's doing this alone. I honestly hate to agree with Shawn Ray because he's a whiner but I am agreeing with him here.

Standing next to Ray who don't even lift anymore. Sure Levrone is bigger but he will look like he doesn't even lift on stage next to real monsters. For his sake I hope he bows out, i'm sorry but it will be cringe worthy.

Thing I notice the most is his lack of delts and width. Arms still there for the most part but his 3d delts are gone. better get out the PMMA.

You'll see on stage. Age will show.

He'd be better off doing piana like videos and just getting jacked and pumped in the gym. He'd make money doing series like piana. On stage you can hide nothing and it will be obvious he is outclassed the second he steps on stage.

I don't even think it's gonna be a "well he looks good for his age" moment. I think it's gonna be cringe worthy. I really do. Those guys on that stage are on a different fucken planet and when he's forced to stand next to them he will look like a chihuahua in a pack of pitbulls.. especially the legs..
