The Item: Career Updates, Special Appearances, Legends Update, Andrew Oye's WWE Pro Athletes Roundup, IFBB Pro Athletes Roundup

The Scoop: Recently Reported: WWE Pro athletes and IFBB Pro League athletes had career updates or made recent guest appearances at various sports, bodybuilding, physique and fitness events. The latest "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report" Pro Athletes Roundup might read like a tribute to the letter H, with updates from "Triple H," Haney, Heath, Haman, and the "Hulk."

The "So What?": Over the weekend, the Arnold Sports Festival hosted the IFBB Pro Arnold Classic Europe Bodybuilding Championships, won by IFBB Pro Dennis Wolf. Athletes who attended the Arnold Fitness Expo in Madrid, Spain included: freshly crowned 4-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Phil Heath, IFBB Pro Jay Cutler, IFBB Pro Flex Wheeler, IFBB Pro Cedric McMillan, IFBB Pro Ben Pakulski, IFBB Pro Marius Dohne, IFBB Pro Zack Khan, IFBB Pro Raul Carrasco-Jimenez, IFBB Pro Jaime Atienza, IFBB Pro Fouad Abiad, IFBB Pro Alfonso Del Rio, IFBB Pro Manuel Manchado, and IFBB Pro Ed Nunn. Back on U.S. soil, IFBB Pro Brian Yersky was the guest poser at the NPC Daytona Beach Classic Bodybuilding Championships in Florida, where IFBB Pro Ryan Pateracki was in the crowd cheering on competitors he had coached for the contest.

A week prior, several pro athletes attended the 50th Anniversary Mr. Olympia Championships at Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend (won by current MUSCLE INK Magazine cover athlete Phil Heath). IFBB Pro Bob Cicherillo and IFBB Pro Dennis James moderated the press conference and joined an onstage acknowledgment gathering that included: IFBB Pro Lee Labrada, IFBB Pro Flex Wheeler, IFBB Pro Shawn Ray, and IFBB Pro Berry DeMey (a former WBF BodyStar in WWE CEO Vince McMahon's World Bodybuilding Federation, which had IFBB Pro Gary Strydom as champion and IFBB Pro Tom Platz as Talent Director).

An onstage tribute to Olympia champions included: IFBB Pro Lee Haney, IFBB Pro Ronnie Coleman, IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger, IFBB Pro Franco Columbu, IFBB Pro Jay Cutler and IFBB Pro Samir Bannout. Spotted at the Olympia Expo: Ms. Olympia IFBB Pro Lenda Murray, IFBB Pro Ed Nunn, IFBB Pro Toney Freeman, IFBB Pro Al Auguste, IFBB Pro Dallas McCarver, IFBB Pro Marco Rivera, IFBB Pro Anthony Bailes, IFBB Pro Kevin Jordan, IFBB Pro Frank McGrath, Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine, IFBB Pro Andy Haman (wrestler and powerlifter), Mike O'Hearn (Titan from TV's "American Gladiators"), and WWE Superstar Pro Wrestler Triple H (Hunter Hearst Helmsley, a.k.a. Paul Michael Levesque) -- World Wrestling Entertainment Executive Vice President, 5-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion, 5-time WWE Intercontinental Champion, and a former competitive bodybuilder. From the broadcast booth, Triple H provided sportscast commentary for the 50th Anniversary Mr. Olympia Championships. Highlights from Olympia Weekend will be televised on the NBC Sports Network (NBCSN) in two 90-minute special telecasts (October 18 and October 25).

Andrew Oye's Verdict: With a slew of post-Olympia events scheduled, the IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series has already kicked-off, qualifying Open Division athletes in Spain and 212 Division athletes at the Korea Grand Prix (won by IFBB Pro Flex Lewis) for the 2015 Olympia Weekend. This also means more globetrotting guest appearances by pro athletes at upcoming events in Dubai, UAE; Prague, Czech Republic; San Marino Italy; Lahti, Finland; Zhengzhou, China; and Saint Petersburg, Russia (in addition "The Incredible Hulk" and legendary IFBB Pro Lou Ferrigno's inaugural Ferrigno Legacy Bodybuilding Championships in Santa Barbara, California).
