Chris Cormier in his prime was one of the best physiques to ever grace the bodybuilding stage. Too bad for his injury mishaps and drug abuse problems.
Between those two I would say Chris, he isn't out massed too much by Jay and his lines, aesthetics, and proportion blows Jay away.
But judges don't seem to agree with me, so what do I know
I agree that Cutler should not have won the 04 Arnold. That was one of Cutler's worst showings and doesn't do much justice for him in this comparison (look how much better he looks in the 01 pic on the right). Something like 99 Olympia or one of his best Arnold Classic showings for Cormier against Cutler from the 01/06 O or 02/03 Arnold or Ironman would be great.
I would say Chris by far. In his prime he was the most proportionate bodybuilder of all time. He had full development in all of his muscle bellies, not to mention great lines. He was just another victim of The Ronnie Coleman Era. I felt like he had Flex beat at the 99' O, and if it was not for Ronnie being Ronnie than he could have been a Mr. O.
