He also discusses the reality of his beef with Rich Piana and how he looks back on it after his passing. Other topics include Big Boy’s past in prison and how social media helped him change his image, his reaction to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s call for drug testing in bodybuilding (“Arnold should shut his mouth”), and whether or not the internet has spread negativity into the world of bodybuilding and fitness.
