First time going to the arnold, so i'm just thrilled to see the entire event as well as the cage. Seen so many videos online, doesn't look like anything needs to change. Keep up the great work gents!

I would love to see a nice strongman style showdown. Even something out of the ordinary, maybe like some ridiculous strict pressing or overhead work.

More of like a "guy a" vs "guy b," Both have to attempt to lift say 135, 225, 315, 405, 495, etc? That would be pretty cool, solid suggestion.

Yeah, just something a little different to show off the strongman side of things instead of focusing on power lifting.

I think with the huge increase in popularity in powerlifting amongst females (and some of them are pretty damn strong)..it would be cool to see a female be featured in the cage. You have 114 lb girls like Kim Valentine nearing a 400 lb raw squat, Susan Salazar setting huge all time WRs consistently, Kim Walford squatting 400 + in just sleeves at 148..etc etc


I also would like to see Tee Cummins lift in the cage again. He's awesome.

i think Garrett knows Susan Salazar pretty well.

and yea Tee is super impressive with his lifting and has picked it up a lot since last year, he could prally show us sumthin special.

Jesse Norris is almsot a must with how much stronger he continues to get

In the past, I believe female powerlifters lifted... Don't remember how long ago tho. In the past, non-raw powerlifters lifted too. But these days, seems to be mostly raw lifters in The CAGE...

I know Becca Swanson squatted some insane amount of weight back in 2007 or 2008, can't recall if it was raw or not, and I remember Kathy Fields putting up a 400-something (I think) shirted bench back around then too.

I remember Kathy dead lifting in the Cage a few yrs ago. She is awesome and such a nice person to boot. As a female I'd definitely love to see some female lifters, power lifting or even strongwoman.

I'm with everyone on this. It would be great to show women lifting weights that other 'normal' gym going girls aren't used to seeing. Especially from girls like the aforementioned tinier girls like Kim Valentine. Cute AND strong girls. Just as there is that "fat powerlifter" stigma that goes with men in the sport which most of us discredit…its good for the 'lifting heavy makes girls bulky" stigma to be put to rest.

I like to see the Usual suspects in the cage, Higa, Norris, Hawthorne, Willis. The Canadians and J Wong for sure. GUNZ is a must.
Of course I'd like to see Tee Cummins do something exciting again this year.

A pound for pound strongest man/woman would be cool. For example Richard Hawthorne deadlifting against someone much heavier and the winner is determined by weight lifted times Body Weight.

I'd like to see a strong woman there.

An old lifter would be cool too.

I have faith that it will be awesome none the less.

A structured menu is great when it comes to the lifters and the events. Its necessary in that chaotic environment. But the best part of those events is that you never know who's going to stop in and either judge, cheer or, or even participate in the lift. Over the years, we've had many high profile, elite men in both PL and BB that happened to just walk by during a particular event and stop in to do one of the aforementioned. People, whether they're an average dude looking for free shit or IFBB Pros and elite PL'ers, they all gravitate to The CAGE. Ed Coan judged one of Higa's events. I think I remember some kid coming into the cage spontaneously and deadlifting something like 315 for reps with no warmup .. in jeans. Always good stuff.

I know there are a lot of well known lifters being suggested on this thread, but I also know that Animal is down for giving back. I would absolutely love to see lifters like these individuals in the Cage, if not this year, then another year:

https://www.facebook.com/teamsomeassemblyrequired

Team Some Assembly Required, adaptive athletes... Yeah yeah they're mainly Crossfit, but seriously take a look at their videos on YouTube or posts on Instagram (where I stumbled upon them). Tell me they would not motivate the fuck out of, not only the people outside the Cage, but the people within the Cage. A lot of these people are veterans who've lost limbs serving our country...

Think of our own Animal athletes who have surpassed accidents or surgeries that would have left most bed ridden and depressed... Patrick with his back surgery, Frank and his car accident, Brandon and his surgeries. Think of how these men have motivated people, inspired them with their drive, their passion, and their warrior souls that would not let them give up. That's wht this team is about...

Contact them. Have someone bench, someone deadlift, and someone squat... Think of how awe inspiring it would be, how awesome it would be to give them the opportunity that many an athlete would kill to have-to lift in the Cage, with the best... Well aren't these people setting themselves apart by not giving up?

Just my thoughts.

Team Some Assembly Required, adaptive athletes... Yeah yeah they're mainly Crossfit, but seriously take a look at their videos on YouTube or posts on Instagram (where I stumbled upon them). Tell me they would not motivate the fuck out of, not only the people outside the Cage, but the people within the Cage. A lot of these people are veterans who've lost limbs serving our country...

Think of our own Animal athletes who have surpassed accidents or surgeries that would have left most bed ridden and depressed... Patrick with his back surgery, Frank and his car accident, Brandon and his surgeries. Think of how these men have motivated people, inspired them with their drive, their passion, and their warrior souls that would not let them give up. That's wht this team is about...

Contact them. Have someone bench, someone deadlift, and someone squat... Think of how awe inspiring it would be, how awesome it would be to give them the opportunity that many an athlete would kill to have-to lift in the Cage, with the best... Well aren't these people setting themselves apart by not giving up?

Just my thoughts.

Those people are amazing and inspiring

Rob (knotahumanbeing) knows Rogue American pretty well... I am sure he could set it up.
