Fans were shocked and disappointed when it turned out that Big Ramy was unable to qualify for the 2020 Mr. Olympia. However there is a good case to make that he should get a special invitation to the 2020 Mr. Olympia.
It seemed a surefire thing that Ramy would compete at the Olympia after he revealed that he would compete at the IFBB Europa Pro. Unfortunately a positive COVID-19 test forced him out of the show, which was a disappointment, especially considering the way the other competitiors looked. It seemed like a certainty that he would have been able to win, had he competed. Nevertheless there was still hope for him to qualify with points, until last weekend’s Chicago which left him narrowly missing the point window following the conclusion of the final qualifying event for the 2020 Mr. Olympia.
With this being the case, fans have been wondering if Big Ramy should be given a special invite to the 2020 Mr. Olympia. While some people disagree with this, here are some reasons why it would make sense for him to get this invitation, despite not qualifying. Unlike most of the other people who are given special invitations to the Olympia, Big Ramy has actually been a runner-up in previous years. This shows that he has the skillset and physique to rival the best on any given day.
