Jim Manion has extended the special invite to Kai Greene for the 2017 Mr. Olympia. Considering all of the factors (perhaps not as much prep time as he would have liked, his previous issues with AMI, his age, etc.), I am going to stand by my earlier prediction from almost two years ago that Greene will never stand on the Olympia stage again.

Of course, it would be a much more exciting show with The Predator in the line-up. This is going to be a slam dunk for Phil Heath, even with Greene. But that would be his closest competitor. So it makes sense for Manion to do this, business-wise and PR-wise, since Greene is the clear cut fan favorite and people's champion.

What do you guys think?

Manion's move was ingenious and the iFBB (and even AMI, for that matter) can say they welcomed him with open arms and he chose not to compete. And by some chance he does enter, it's a much better show.

Since he will be guest posing in India & China @ August, I do not think he has the time to prep properly for the Olympia and will probably refuse the offer. However if for some reason there is a huge contract or something that involves money between the IFBB and him, he might take a shot at it.

Not sure at this point. I too thought he will never compete at the O ever again, but with an invite like this you never know.
With that said, the Mr O 2017 is not hyped at all if not for this "special invite".
