This is one way that Walker would not compete. He was asked what it would take to cause him to retire and he laid out the answer with two ways.

“I would keep going until I don’t want to compete anymore. There’s only two ways I’m going to retire — when I just don’t have the drive anymore or my body just says ‘nah champ, not this year.’

Obviously, I want to win as many O’s as I can, as many Arnold’s as I can, and just keep doing it.”

This is one of many questions that Walker answered. He would eventually move onto who from the past he would want to take the stage against.
