Re: CM Punk's tweet about Lance Armstrong

It's probably more of a kayfabe thing. Bashing steroid users probably isn't the smartest idea when you work in the wrestling industry, though I guess Cena got away with it, nobody can touch him.

Let's be clear. Cycling has more mainstream attention, yes - But CM Punk *chose* Pro Wrestling, it's not like he tried out for cycling and failed so went with Wrestling instead. Though yes, let's all laugh at the man living his dream job.

No, it's actually not ironic. It would be ironic (and hypocritical) if HE took drugs but he doesn't.

So what if drugs used to be rampant in Pro Wrestling, does that mean he has to take the shit for his entire business? We blaming the Benoit situation on him, the Katie Vick angle? No?

If he did that then he'd be fucking over his own company. You see the importance of that, right? Or why his Boss might be pissed off?

You understand that by doing that it would jeopardise The Rock possibly walking out of WM (as he obviously wouldn't want that information out there) whereas a tweet about a random celebrity will only get idiots like us talking on the internet.

So if Punk wants to voice his opinion on one person he has to voice it on everybody, right?

Man, the rules have changed since I last posted here.

LOL so his lack of creativity was what disappointed you here? The fact that a Pro Wrestlers Tweet wasn't "The Da Vinci Code" or a Salvador Dali Film?

Not to disappoint you here but if you want creativity then you should probably look somewhere besides Twitter.

Ok this is where some people are seeing this from a wrong perspective. Or we'll say different.

Usually when somebody is on drugs we feel sad for them. Like when we see Jeff Hardy turn up to an event mashed, many of us (lol) just wish he would go to rehab and just sort himself out, get his life back on track. If your brother or sister came to you and said they were hooked on cocaine and wanted your help, you'd pour your heart and soul into helping them get better and that's great.

But that's not what Lance Armstrong did. He purposely took enhancers to help him cheat and win a World-Renowed competition by beating a whole host of other athletes who spent years preparing and worked their asses off only to be cheated out of it. He lied to everyone and then basked in the glory, then continued to do it for years to come.

Imagine if you worked in an office for years, waiting for a promotion and then the Boss gives it to his niece. Lance Armstrong here is the niece.

I don't see how CM Punk is an "asshole" for one "unimaginative" Tweet to a celebrity who, by normal standards, would be the asshole. But hey, each to their own.
Can people read this post before making a fool out of themselves? :gus

Re: CM Punk's tweet about Lance Armstrong

Am I the only person that doesn't care Lance doped.

He's done enough in life,good raising close to 500 million for cancer research. He can kill a man tommorow and it wouldn't change my views on him.

There's a lot of bikers that doped too, wasn't just him.

I know this was directed at me but I am going to let you slide, this time. You are not as big of a celebrity as CM Punk, so I don't have the time to bury you on twitter. yley1

Although, the gap between your celebrity status and CM Punk's maybe closer than what most people think.

I would love to see him put The Rock on blast for getting a breast reduction. Or did I miss that?

I like you. Because everything you have ever said about Go---I mean CM Punk has been absolute truth. Sad thing is, his marks refuse to believe it and continue to hang on every word he says.

He could wake up one day and change his whole outlook on life and tweet to his marks that he believes in God now. Then all of the CM Punk marks on this forum who are atheists will start believing in God as well.

(I like how all the Punk defenders are saying we are wrong about him attention seeking because he is using his personal twitter account and can therefore say whatever he wants. How does that make us wrong when we say he is an attention whore? What does him using his personal twitter account have to do with anything we are saying? CM Punk knew what he was doing. You guys honestly think he tweeted that just for the hell of it. I don't mind if some are Punk fans but they need to be intelligent enough to see how transparent he is.)

I work in sports nutrition, i've lifted weights myself for 8+ years myself, I train with people who use steroids and people who don't, I know what someone looks like when they're on the juice and when they're not, there are natural limits the human body will not go beyond due to testosterone and testosterone alone.

You CANNOT build muscle past a certain point naturally and stay lean at the same time without raising your test levels. Simply doesn't happen, its a matter of biology. Someone who doesn't use steroids and gets to 250+ will look like a powerlifter, they'll have a lot of mass but also gain fat in the process and lose definition. Only on roids can a person just gain lean mass and no fat.

Rock gained a massive amount of size at age 40 and stayed lean, that does not happen by simply working out alone. You don't know anything about bodybuilding if you think its normal for a person to be bigger AND leaner at 40 than they were in their prime when he had peak natural testosterone levels. I can also safely assume you've never bulked up to any significant weight in your life if you think what its possible to go from ~220 to 260 like Rock did, at age 40, and get leaner in the process without roids.
No it isn't "typical hero worship". Prefacing your phony post with pseudo-intellectual comments about that bs doesn't make your terrible points any better either.

I don't give a shit if The Rock uses, or has used steroids at some point in his life. What I do give a shit about is your constant accusations of every wrestler who doesn't have an average build of using steroids. It's old, tired, and does nothing but perpetuate ignorant myths. THAT is my problem with your post, not that it was about The Rock.

So much of the rest of your post is full of both incorrect information and straight up irrelevant numbers.

First of all, 250 lbs is an meaningless number. 250 lbs for someone who's 5'9" is going to be a lot different than someone who's 6'5". It isn't some magical breakpoint for all human beings. Was that supposed to be a "scientific" point or something? Completely irrelevant number. Red flag #1 that you don't have a career in the field.

Secondly, no, you don't gain a bunch of fat just because you increase your strength. You gain fat when you eat a lot of calories to assit your workouts yet don't work them off. This usually happens when you don't spend much working on cardio and instead most focusing on building strength. Power lifters in strength competitions looks fatter because they don't really care about their image. Who cares about looking ripped when that does nothing but take energy away from building muscle? There's no weight limit for power lifting competitions either, so there's no reason to put in the extra work to trim down.

And oh yes, steroids don't magically make you lose weight either. Eating right and excersizing do. And that's not something you need roids to do. That's red flag that you're a liar #2. Pro tip: if you're going to be an internet phony and claim you work in sports nutrition, you should probably develop some common sense about the field.

Contrastingly, when you have an entertainment business like WWE, looking good is nearly as important as being strong. Therefore unlike in power lifting competitions, there's a big incentive to stay as trim as possible. Therefore more efforts will be made to look trim than if you lift just for strength. Even in sports such as boxing, you have to trim down to make weight, therefore you will also see very strong guys with barely any body fat. And that sport is very strictly tested for steroids and any other forms of PEDs.

You're comparing apples to oranges, and throwing out some bs credentials so you can pretend like your mindless bashing of every single wrestler who looks remotely above average "must be on steroids" has merit when it doesn't. You throw those accusations out every few weeks. Claiming you're a body builder and sports nutritionist doesn't mean shit if the information you give is completely wrong and full of myths and amatuer misconceptions.

The fact that you sat there and flat out said that anybody who has significant muscle mass but is also lean is definitely on roids proves your ignorance of human biology, sports nutrition, and body building.. It is not impossible. It's not even close to impossible. Red flag #3. Everything you said was either irrelevant, wrong, or a very lazy generalization (which was also wrong).
