The "So What?": Hollywood actor ("The Incredible Hulk," "Hercules"), co-star of "Pumping Iron," IFBB Hall of Famer and 2-time Mr. Universe IFBB Pro Lou Ferrigno hosts the first annual IFBB/NPC Ferrigno Legacy Pro-Amateur Championships at the Granada Theater, a 1,550-seat venue that recently underwent a $52 million renovation. The Ferrigno Legacy Bodybuilding and Fitness Festival features many events for fitness enthusiasts, fitness industry professionals and fans, including: expert fitness clinics, instructional demos, live backstage interviews, entertainment and an after-party gala, as well as a Legends Q&A with 8-time Ms. Olympia IFBB Pro Lenda Murray, Mr. America IFBB Pro Ed Corney, 4-time Arnold Classic Champion IFBB Pro Flex Wheeler, 13-time Olympia contender IFBB Pro Shawn Ray, and Ferrigno.

According to promo material, invited celebrities, pro athletes and friends of Ferrigno expected on the opening-night red carpet: Lou Ferrigno, Jr. ("NCIS"), Oprah Winfrey, Chuck Norris ("Walker, Texas Ranger"), Mickey Rourke ("The Wrestler"), Frank Stallone, Cheryl Tiegs, Kathy Ireland, Alan Thicke, Jeff Bridges, 7-time Mr. Olympia Arnold Schwarzenegger, reigning 4-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Phil Heath, 4-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Jay Cutler, plus more.

Andrew Oye's Verdict: With his exciting new event, Lou Ferrigno creates a path of opportunities like that of his friend with the Arnold Sports Festival and IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships. "I am honored to launch an event combining California's legendary bodybuilding culture with world-class competitors raising awareness for personal health, fitness and two worthy causes," said Ferrigno. Perhaps, the future holds international franchises of the Ferrigno Legacy (as Schwarzenegger did, expanding into Spain, Brasil and Australia).

As reported in MUSCLE INK Magazine's "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," the Ferrigno Legacy hosts the last men's bodybuilding (frontrunners include Rockel, Dohne, Piotrkowicz), women's and men's physique contests of 2014 offering IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series points for his mentor's "Super Bowl of bodybuilding" -- the 2015 Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend. The NPC amateur contests are national qualifiers that allow top placers to compete for IFBB Pro cards. More importantly, a portion of the event's proceeds benefit the Greater Los Angeles Muscular Dystrophy Association and services for hearing-impaired children.
