Jay Cutler likes the multi-year competitions. He also signed a contract for three years with ISSI. The young Cutler did not know how his career was going to pan out. He signed with Olympia in 2000. And then, according to him, he almost won in 2001 by a fluke.

After this, he started narrating how he regretted one decision during that time. The IFBB pro said, “As you guys know, I sat out in 2002. I wasn’t forced to complete, and probably as I get a little older, I’m like, damn, did I miss an opportunity?

Coleman talks about the testing system withdrawal due to Jay Cutler

In an interview back in May 2002, Coleman talked about the testing system that was prevalent when he started bodybuilding. He also highlighted that iconic champion Cutler was behind an integral decision in Mr. Olympia’s competitions.

The main component that was looked for was any illegal diuretics that were used by the bodybuilders to enhance their muscles. Cutler had tested positive for diuretics in 2003 when he threatened the organization, saying that he might sue them. This has led to the withdrawal of the testing system. They were like, ‘Okay, well, we won’t keep testing, and you get the chance to keep your prize money too. We will just do away with the testing,’” said the Mr. Olympia champ. He further stated, “Jay changed that. They didn’t test anymore after that.
