- Yeah, Haney dominated the sport from every angle, but so did Ronnie in 98-99 or Dorian in 92. If fact, Haney was the mass monster of his time, he was the best in an era size wasn't THAT important. He didn't have to choose between freaky mass and aesthethics.
Haney won for the first time at 25, Arnold did at 23.
Haney wouldn't have beat 1993 (and maybe nor 1992) Dorian Yates. No way in hell. Don't get me wrong, Haney deserves IMO at least 6 of his 8 Olympias, if not 7, but for some reason he doens't WOW me as Arnold or Ronnie did.
IMHO Levrone 97, Flex 93 look two times better than Haney (much respect for him, I repeat) but they were born 5-10 years too late.
Anyway, GREAT post.
