Ronnie In the Ring?
Articles by ProSource
| Apr 23, 2012
Big Ron vs. Dwayne Johnson? Hulk Hogan?
Kurt Angle? We Asked, Ronnie Answered.
By now, we all know how the typical post-retirement interview with a former sports superstar goes. The star talks about past glories and says he doesn't miss the spotlight at all.
Ronnie Coleman, however, as long-time fans of the professional bodybuilding know, doesn't fit the stereotype. When we sat down to talk to him at the conclusion of the 16th Annual NPC Ronnie Coleman Classic recently, Big Ronnie was in no mood to talk about the past. Ronnie Coleman is--and has always been--all about the future.
Within moments of sitting down, we found ourselves entirely off script and talking about Ronnie's love of the WWE and TNA and, amazingly, about his long-held desire to enter the ring against some of pro wrestling's greatest stars.
Any big-time promoters out there looking to earn a once-in-a-lifetime windfall? Please take note:
ProSource: We have to say, Big Ron, that you've always got a surprise or two in store for us. We didn't have any questions about the WWE or TNA and professional wrestling prepared for today.
Well, you should have. I don't like to dwell on the past much. My first love will always be bodybuilding, but competitively, I've done everything I could ever accomplish in that realm. But something like pro wrestling, that would be new ground for me. I think my skill set is well-suited for big-time wrestling.
ProSource: This sounds like something you've given some thought to. Have you always been a fan of the WWE and TNA?
I love wrestling and I have some friends that wrestle. I even had one of the wrestlers at my workout weekend camp some time ago. I recently went backstage at one of the WWE events and all the guys knew me. As for me entering the ring, yeah, I'd do it. I'd fight anybody.
ProSource: Anybody? If you had your choice, who would be your top 3 on the list?
Well, if you're talking dream match-up, I'd have to say
"The Rock," Dwayne Johnson
. Any of those guys.
ProSource: Who wins a Ronnie Coleman-Dwayne Johnson bout?
[Laughs] Man, I don't know. That would be some battle. Heck, I'd pay to see that!
ProSource: So would we! You mind if we talk about some other new developments in the world of Big Ron?
Sure. Let's go.
ProSource: A few weeks ago, the 16th annual NPC Ronnie Coleman Classic was held in Mesquite, Texas. What were your impressions?
Outside of the national-level events, it's pretty much the biggest NPC amateur show in the U.S. We had over 400 competitors this year. With my name behind it, we've worked hard behind the scenes to make it what it is. We plan to keep building it up, continuing to make it a great place to compete and a fun show to watch for the fans who come out and support us.
The overall winner was Kevin Ofurum. What do you think of his physique? Is he a future Olympia contender in your opinion?
He'll be Mr. Olympia one day! Kevin won my show, and I don't expect anything less from him. This is a really difficult show, which draws some of the best bodybuilders in the world to compete, so yes, I'm expecting big things from him. He looked awesome.
Outside of the Ronnie Coleman Classic, we still know you have your own bodybuilding ambitions. You recently had spinal surgery to alleviate neck and back pain. Have you completed rehab? Are you back in the gym?
Yes, I've been back in the gym now for two months and training hard. All is going great! I'm back up to 290 now, heading towards 300 hard,
We hear you're also keeping busy with a new supplement line. Can you tell us more about that endeavor?
We've launched the 'Ronnie Coleman Signature Series' in Europe, where it has been a big hit. I know you'd expect me to say this, but I really do love these products -- the formulations are fantastic. We currently have
, which is a preworkout product;
, which is a nitric oxide/testosterone booster;
., which is a sleep and recovery aid; and
, a protein supplement with 29 grams of protein per scoop. (Note: Coleman's products will soon be available at ProSource.net.)
Speaking of supplements, you've been a well-documented fan of ProSource for just about our entire 16-year history. What's most important about a supplement retailer for you?
ProSource is all about a
commitment to excellence
. They always have been. When you're out there, trying to attain the highest physique and performance goals, you want to deal with companies that have the same serious approach to getting the job done right that you have. With ProSource, you know their customer service, their business practices, their coverage of the industry on their website, are all top-notch. ProSource has delivered to me on time, all the time, and carry the
in the world. I highly recommend the website to all serious people on the hunt for quality supplements who are looking for a great experience, customer appreciation, and some of the lowest prices around.
Of course, we can't let you go without getting your opinion on the man who now holds the Mr. Olympia title, Phil Heath. What impresses you about Heath's physique? Do you foresee multiple titles for him? Do you think we'll ever see another eight-year reign of the sort that you and Haney enjoyed?
Phil is one of the greatest bodybuilders I've seen compete since Arnold, Lee and myself. I see multiple titles for him. But I have to admit, winning eight in a row in this day and age with the competition level he's facing, only God can predict that.
To this day, I look back and I don't know how I did it, only God knows that too. But I do know that I am blessed beyond belief, and it is nothing short of amazing to me.
So more titles, but maybe not eight?
Oh, I'd love to see Phil run off eight in a row. That would be so exciting for me to see as a fan, since I didn't see Lee Haney do it, having only got into the sport of bodybuilding in 1990.
Last question: It sounds like there may indeed be a Masters Olympia in December in Prague. Will we see you on that stage?
Yes, I am shooting to be in that Master's Olympia show. Of course, I'm still recovering and rebuilding, but I'll be doing a ton of praying in the following months. It will take that much praying for me to get healthy enough and in shape enough to get on that stage, but that's my intent.
Thanks for sharing with our readers, Ron. We'll be looking for you in the WWE or TNA ring.
[Laughs] You never know, man. You never know.
