Andrew Oye's Verdict: While he hasn't officially announced retirement, 4-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Jay Cutler seems close to ending his run on the competitive stage. This week, Cutler signed a new media contract, leaving the company housing Wolf, IFBB Pro Branch Warren and IFBB Pro Evan Centopani, to return to the company housing Lewis, 3-time Mr. Olympia Phil Heath and IFBB Pro Shawn Rhoden. Meanwhile, both of the new Arnold Classic champions announced upcoming guest-posing appearances at IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series contests where athletes gain points to compete at Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend.  IFBB Pro James "Flex" Lewis will be the first-ever guest-poser at the long-running IFBB Australian Pro Grand Prix this weekend. IFBB Pro Dennis Wolf was added to the NPC/IFBB Pittsburgh Championships, joining an all-star guest lineup that includes IFBB Pro Dexter Jackson, IFBB Pro Mamdouh Elssbiay (a.k.a. "Big Ramy"), Heath, Cutler, Warren and Rhoden.
