To every MC that introduced me. To every expeditor that told me where to stand, down to every light man with a plan. To every judge that has judged me. To every photographer and writer that poured their hearts and souls out so the world can see. And to all my fans and loved ones that cried for me.. This one’s for you baby! I saw an opportunity to go out and make a difference and do something that had never been done before. I always believed that if there’s an opportunity and adversity, sometimes you look at it as a way out or you can can’t things done.. But as long as you believe in yourself you can certainly do it. And you know what.. I’m gonna take this opportunity, I’m gonna do something great. This decision wasn’t just made overnight.. This is something I’ve been pondering with for the last 8, 9, 10 years.. After I walked off the stage at the Mr. Olympia. It was something that god gave me the sign. He said you know what.. This is your chance, this is the opportunity for you to go out and do something great for the sport. So I decided to come out of retirement.. Do what I can do best, take it to the stage at the Mr. Olympia baby. I’ll see you guys there! In my mind when I’m training I’m in my zone.. I’m gonna push my body to the limit to do what it is that I need to do to look my best. You guys wanted it, you guys are gonna have it. Train with a purpose. Focus. Don’t do any talking when you’re in the gym, let everybody else talk. This stage right here is a place that I call home. I just wanna feel what the Maryland Muscle Machine used to feel like. My body is just 100% ready to rock ‘n roll and I’m just gonna do what I was born to do.
