Mike Matarazzo

I have always liked his physique. Does anyone know why he all of a sudden just dropped out of the scene?
He never placed that well in professional contests. At this point he's past 40 and last year around Christmas he had (I think) heart surgery.

Great bod, freaky arms, delts, and calves, but he never quite put it altogether (I think his chest and back tended to be criticized, although I can't imagine why!)

One of the first really freaky bods (in the late 80s / early 90s, an offseason bodyweight of 285 lbs. and 23 1/2 biceps were definitely freaky) and always appreciated because of it!

who recalls seeing a segment of ABC's Wide World of Sports (circa 1971) on that year's Mr. Olympia contest, in which Arnold creamed Dave Draper and Sergio Oliva (Oliva shoulda won!)
