    Bodybuilding Gossip's "Who is it?"

    I've seen this game on several Web sites. Hoping that this activity finds a home on "Bodybuilding Gossip".

    The twist here is that each image will be of a physique competitor who has some bit of gossip associated with them. (Hey, it's an open field, eh?)

    Who is it?



    Name the athlete and if you're so inclined throw out what you believe is their associated drama or gossip.

    Tips will be provided if necessary (and if there's an interest).

    ^Good job!

    Now name the "gossip" or controversy surrounding Strydom.

    Here's a hint: The year was 1990.

    Lots of gossip and controversy surrounding this competitor, but his biggest drama occurred December 2005.

    You're close to what I was thinking of...

    I had the year wrong. Vince McMahon's World Bodybuilding Federation sparked controversy when it was founded in 1990. And then Strydom won the WBF Championship in 1991 and 1992.

    The controversy was that Strydom, an IFBB superstar, jumped ship to McMahon's WBF.

    Vince McMahon created the WBF as competition to the long established International Federation of BodyBuilders (IFBB).

    In 1990, McMahon initially denied that he was starting a bodybuilding organization, instead stressing that he was only starting a magazine called Bodybuilding Lifestyles. He hired famed bodybuilding personality Tom Platz to oversee the publication.

    The magazine secured a booth at the IFBB Mr. Olympia contest held on September 15, 1990 in Chicago. At the conclusion of that competition, the booth handed out press releases announcing the WBF's formation. The press release stated that the WBF would "revamp professional bodybuilding with dramatic new events and the richest prize money in the history of the sport." It also mentioned that Tom Platz would be Director of Talent Development for the organization.

    McMahon announced at the company's unveiling on January 30, 1991 in New York's Plaza Hotel that the WBF had signed thirteen competitors, many IFBB regulars, to long-term contracts: Aaron Baker, Mike Christian, Vince Comerford, David Dearth, Berry DeMey, Johnnie Morant, Danny Padilla, Tony Pearson, Jim Quinn, Mike Quinn, Eddie Robinson, Gary Strydom, and Troy Zuccolotto. They were dubbed the "WBF BodyStars."

    The first competition aired June 15, 1991 live on pay-per-view from Atlantic City, New Jersey. Regis Philbin was brought in to co-host the event with McMahon and Bobby Heenan. The show was met with mixed reviews: critics noted that the WBF's attempt at developing characters for each BodyStar went against Vince McMahon's initial promise to keep professional wrestling away from bodybuilding.

    ^How do you do that? That's twice that you got the right athlete and found the pic!

    And, of course, Titus' drama or gossip centered around the death of his assistant, Melissa James.

    "On December 14, 2005 the burnt corpse of Ryan and Titus' personal assistant Melissa James was discovered inside a Jaguar car belonging to Kelly Ryan. The couple went into hiding together and were arrested along with suspected accomplice, Anthony Gross, after a nine day investigation.The couple awaited trial in Nevada on charges in the murder of their live-in assistant, Melissa James. James was alleged to have had an affair with Titus."
