Bodybuilding Pawns

From an anonymous posting on the getbig forum:

David Pecker [AMI] wanted the Olympia contest.

Ben Weider would not give him the Olympia contest.

David Pecker wanted the Olympia contest.

Ben Weider and David Pecker fought about it.

Ben said no way over the Mr. Olympia contest.

David Pecker told Wayne Demilia and Jim Lorimer he would support them in a new division.

Wayne started to get sponsorships and the promoters to agree on it.

David Pecker did not respond to the IFBB on the new division.

Wayne continued via signs of encouragement from AMI.

Ben Weider started feeling increased pressure.

Ben Weider realized he may not win if AMI goes with the new division.

Ben Weider gives in – gives Olympia to David Pecker.

David Pecker got what he wanted by playing human pawns.
