As information unfold that A Pressure of Nature Blessing Awodibu gained Dave Bowers 2022 IFBB Professional League Indy Professional, it appeared the social media influencer was on high of the world. Everybody was speaking about him all all through the assorted Fb teams and throughout Instagram. Many pundits additionally took to YouTube the place they mentioned the various prospects that lay forward for the Irish bodybuilder. An incredible most of the speaking heads reminisced about Blessing’s very entertaining rivalry with The Mutant Nick Walker.

For a lot of within the business, bodybuilding has the tendency to get boring. There’s solely a lot you are able to do with simply lifting and posing. If you happen to’ve ever attended a bodybuilding contest, you understand that redundancy could make even probably the most hardcore fan go to sleep. The truth of the matter is that Blessing’s win put him on the map. Not solely wasn’t he the favourite to win however he fought laborious in opposition to guys with way more buzz going into the competition than him.

Simply as I predicted in final week’s article for IM, Blessing has been inundated with messages and media interés for the reason that massive victory. It’s like everybody raced to their Instagram to publish photographs with him and pledge their unwavering help. All that being mentioned Blessing obtained dropped by his longtime sponsor RedCon1 shortly after his massive win in Indy. The information shocked us all. Nobody would ever anticipate a complement sponsor to drop an athlete after successful a bodybuilding present. It merely is not sensible.

The 2022 Indy Professional Champ has been largely quiet in regards to the circumstances regarding his break with the corporate based and previously run by Aaron Singerman. This may very well be as a consequence of the truth that RC1 sponsors quite a few competitions and occasions all through the health business. It may be as a consequence of the truth that Awodibu is simply too busy finding out provides from different would-be sponsors and doesn’t wish to appear petty. Many corporations will wish to strike the iron whereas it’s nonetheless scorching and Blessing’s massive win continues to be the discuss of the city.

With the NY Professional simply days away, it’s solely a matter of time till the thrill round Indy subsides. In contrast to different professional’s who would possibly hunker down and lay low for the months to return earlier than the Olympia, Blessing has intensified his presence on social media. The query about his break with Redcon will solely develop into extra of a focus till clarifications are made. An incredible many insiders speculate that the corporate could also be experiencing monetary woes and that Awodibu being reduce is simply the tip of the iceberg. Though the model is seen in quite a few shops and web sites, that doesn’t actually communicate to their monetary stability or their means to generate sufficient income to offset their quite a few monetary obligations.

Aaron Singerman didn’t do RC1 many favors. Not solely did he flip on the eleventh hour and insult the federal government at a celebration, he then embarrassed himself and his firm when he was arrested twice for DUI’s throughout the weeks awaiting sentencing. Though Singerman left a successor of kinds as President of the corporate, Redcon will at all times be related to him.

With all that being the case many insiders surprise if Aaron remains to be calling the photographs from jail. Whereas there’s definitely a chance of that, it’s extremely unlikely for my part. If something, I believe Aaron was most likely the one which stored Blessing on board and now we are going to see a sequence of athlete and tier operator adjustments. With Recon being underneath new administration and the business returning to regular after the pandemic, it’s anybody’s guess who stays and who goes. Cash is a big issue. I can’t reiterate that sufficient.

Simply because an organization appears to be like solvent doesn’t imply it’s. I’m not sitting right here telling you that RC1 goes to go broke, however I’m saying issues won’t be as hunky dory as their cheerleaders let on. Once you examine cash in vs cash going out, I’d be very involved about an organization that’s consistently dropping costs and gifting away freebies simply to generate gross sales. Additionally, the very fact RC1 is at locations like Walmart, doesn’t imply a lot within the grand scheme of issues. Being on cabinets wherever you go is simply sensible should you’re seeing good returns. Locations like Walmart and GNC have set insurance policies for stock, gross sales, shelf positioning and returns. As soon as enterprise house owners take a more in-depth look, many choose in opposition to it.

You may make extra money promoting direct or by means of on-line retailers than bowing all the way down to unfavorable phrases with retail brick-and-mortar giants. That is one more reason GNC’s are disappearing however I digress.

My coronary heart goes out to Blessing. He did what he was alleged to do. He’s tirelessly selling on social media and he gained one of many greatest bodybuilding contests within the Midwest. Virtually anytime I see him he’s both sporting Redcon clothes or plugging Redcon merchandise. Until there’s one thing we don’t know, I’d say A Pressure Of Nature obtained royally screwed. And whereas he has quite a lot of expertise, there’s no assure he’ll get signed by one other complement sponsor. Firms as of late don’t actually signal bodybuilders anymore. They could signal a social media influencer or they may give a bunch of opponents free merchandise, however the days of signing high bodybuilders for large paydays are largely over. Even his previous couple of years competing, 7x Mr. Olympia Phil Heath didn’t have a complement sponsor. That may be attributed to the very fact he was extraordinarily conceited and self-centered. The truth is Blessing must concentrate on the 2022 Olympia, not looking for a sponsor.

An incredible many followers noticed what A Pressure Of Nature did in Indianapolis and so they consider that’s exactly the caliber of athlete that may break into the celebrated Olympia Prime 6. A whole lot of the highest guys both have the look or they don’t. Many have misplaced the starvation they’d within the newbie ranks. If you happen to ever watch The Nationals or The USA’s, you’ll see opponents battle all all through the prejudging and the finals. They wish to place as excessive as potential and so they wish to earn the judges’ consideration. On the high tier of the professional stage, guys will do some “battling” throughout the posedown however that’s largely for the photographers and to get a response from the viewers. In any other case, they only have a tendency to pull their ft on stage and attempt to keep awake. If a man like Blessing fought laborious in Vegas and gave 110%, he simply would possibly surpass guys like Nick Walker and Hunter Labrada. That is why so many individuals are so excited!!

Ultimately, we don’t know who ordered Blessing to be dropped. Did Aaron order it? Did he approve it? Does he even know? Regardless of the cause might have been, I believe we’ll by no means know. I additionally suspect insiders are scrambling to search out out what’s occurring with RC1 on numerous boards and teams. Many have already delved into conversations relative to the way forward for the model. Can Redcon survive with out Aaron? What say you? Was the choice to drop Blessing Awodibu justified or was it indicative of an unsure future for an organization which may not make it?
