    Chris Benoit at my gym this morning

    So I ran into Chris Benoit at my Gym this morning and let me tell you, I was not that impressed. I just went to his fan site a few mintues ago which says he's 5'10" 235. In real life he was maybe 5'8"-5'9" and he was probably 215-220 at max. He was a pretty big looking dude, fairly cut with a bit of a gear gut. I talked to him for a bit and worked in on some 280 poound shrugs with him which was pretty cool. Overall, I really thought he was bigger.

    That's cool...

    I always thoughthe looked even a bit shorter than 5'8 on TV. Stuff like the fan site ALWAYS overestimate height. It's the same with NFL, college, and high school football programs, and anything in-between.

    Yeah, 5'8"-5'9" may even be a bit of a stretch. I towered over him.

    he looks to be about 5'7. I admire his physique minus the gut. The dude looks like a tank.

    I've seen him when I was working a WWE show. He's not over 5"7, but the weight may be correct because of the small gut and packed on mucle. His teeth are ****ed lol.

    How are his legs?
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    The "gap toothed jackass" nickname is accurate then?

    I'm surprised. When I saw him up close awhile back he looked like such a tank.

    I figured those wrestlers always juiced it. How can they spend that much time in the gym being on the road all the time?

    I'd say 80-90% of them juice. From what they say, getting into the gym indeed is a problem. But I imagine most of them still find the time.

    I'm sure.. if it was my job to be big (given a some time to catch up ), I could definitely make time to lift an hour or so per day. I wouldn't be suprised if WWE has gyms that move with the events... but I could be wrong

    They don't.

    Y2A: Lol yeah, exactly.

    They have about 3-4 trucks. The huge web of steel hanging over your head during their shows comes in 4-8 foot pieces, and takes 5-6 hours to put together when you have 90 people. Their roadies are very good to work with though, so it wasn't bad.

    Just by looking at that pic you can almost tell he is short, look how long his arms are, they are fairly short.

    Back in '91, WWF was in town. Was working out at World Gym and in popped Jake the Snake, Coco the BirdMan, Psycho Sid, and about 4 others I can't recall names. Sid was doing barbell shrugs right beside me. That guy was HUGE, towering tall, massive. He was saying they just try to get in workouts whereever they are on the road, and it was tough.

    And then the Macho Man dropped the hammer on him, and all hell broke loose.
