The "So What?": The Dallas Pro Championships will be Ed Nunn's first contest of the 2011 IFBB contest season; meanwhile, an athlete similar in physique structure -- Toney Freeman -- has redemption on his mind. Thus far, Freeman (usually a favored threat) has competed four times in 2011 and has yet to break into the Top 3, only placing as high as 5th place at the Mr. Europe Pro Championships (won by IFBB Pro Ronny Rockel -- who also took 6th place ahead of Freeman in 9th place at the Arnold Sports Festival's 2011 IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships, won by IFBB Pro Branch Warren).

Andrew Oye's Verdict: Open Class Frontrunners: Toney Freeman (who wants his ticket to face-off with Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Jay Cutler at Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend and ordinarily would have earned a qualification by now), and Ed Nunn, with Shawn Rhoden and Mike Liberatore also in the mix. 202 Class Frontrunners: Tricky Jackson, Guy Cisternino.
