Jay Cutler discussed the New York Pro and how the end result brought plenty of controversy.

The results of the 2024 New York Pro started much conversation within the bodybuilding world. Recently, Jay Cutler became the latest to discuss the competition during a recent edition of Jaywalking.

Nick Walker won his second NY Pro this year by defeating Martin Fitzwater. Walker entered with great muscle mass but the results ended up being much closer than originally expected. Cutler talked about this performance and also named his “kings” of Men’s Open at the moment.

“Derek is still the king. Hadi is still the king. Samson is still the king. There’s just certain talent there that if you stack them up, I mean you’re still looking at Walker pushing those guys.”

Walker can now officially prepare for the 2024 Olympia and based on his performance in New York, he knows where to improve.

Jay Cutler Talks Controversial Decision

Nick Walker quickly rose to the top of the Men’s Open division in a relatively short amount of time. In 2021, he was crowned champion of the Arnold Classic before hitting the Olympia. He has two top-five finishes in each of the last two years and was a hopeful for this year as well. Unfortunately, Walker suffered a hamstring injury that kept him out of the 2023 Olympia.

Now, Walker is healthy and earned his second victory on the NY Pro stage.

“Walker wins two, a little controversy there. I mean, I think he was still pretty dominant but Martin looked good.”

Cutler continued to talk about Fitzwater’s prospects for the Olympia this year.

“It’s hard to say. Until he stands up there with the guys, I’m not going to be one to predict. I think he looked really sharp but Nick is just very muscular.

The Olympia is a different game, bro. We always talk about the guys as they lead in. Remember Dexter Jackson, he was phenomenal and then once you’re bigger, it’s hard to stand with some of those guys.”

Nick Walker will be looking to make improvements heading into the Olympia in hopes of competing for a title. This will be a major talking point over the course of the summer.
