This is the scenario: a guy, say age 21, becomes serious about gaining muscle. He’s 5′ 10″, 7″ wrists, 9″ ankles, average genetics for muscle size-and-proportioned. He’s played sports, but never done more than an occasional resistance workout. Now, he begins a good training-eating-and-resting program. With his genetics, he has the potential for naturally gaining 45 pounds of lean mass if he stays consistent with progressive training/proper eating for a continuous 3 to 4 years.
But, about three months after beginning his training, he starts taking steroids. He does three steroid cycles in the following 18 months, and includes proper post-cycle therapy. That entire time, he’s continuing to consistently train and eat properly. Before the end of two years, he’s gained 45 pounds of lean mass (which with steroids, by the way, is not necessarily typical but neither improbable). At that point, he permanently quits using steroids, but he does continue properly training and eating for another two years. At the end of four years, he carries the same 45 pounds of lean mass.
Our local classic rock station actually spun the ’87 radio mix on the morning drive the other week (I enjoyed it but honestly I don’t think I ever heard that version ’87 but probably helped it going on the pop charts). That remix is so pop, it could be a Wilson Phillips track. I imagined the phones lighting up with grumpy old men telling the DJ to “turn that sh** off” LOL… Sure enough, my wife and I heard the song again on the commute later in the week and it was back to the familiar ’87 video/album version.
The next chapter of Warrior's career was an encounter with The Undertaker , after Undertaker and his manager, Paul Bearer , locked Warrior in a coffin on the set of Bearer's Funeral Parlor . WWF officials worked feverishly to break the casket open, finally revealing Warrior's seemingly lifeless body, and the torn fabric inside of the coffin indicating Warrior's desperate struggle to get out. Warrior was finally revived by the officials performing CPR . This led to Jake "The Snake" Roberts offering to give Warrior "the knowledge of the dark side" in order to prepare Warrior to take his revenge on the Undertaker. This involved Roberts giving Warrior three "tests" shown on WWF TV in consecutive weeks. For the first test, Roberts locked Warrior inside of a coffin for a second time.
