This is the same situation as when Kai Greene did it back in 2014, but maybe this time Phil Heath has learned to deal with it.

Phil Heath still thinks it is disrespectful and that he never would sign for example 7-time Mr. Olympia winner until he has won.

When Shawn Rhoden was asked the same question moments later, the No. 2 in the world of bodybuilding said that if you want to win the Mr. Olympia title you have to act as you are the Mr. Olympia winner. Rhoden also added that it is also disrespectful when they say Phil Heath is already the 7-time Mr. Olympia winner, it is disrespectful to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
