Greene and Heath were competitors during several years of Olympia contests. However, only now, when Kai left the sport and Phil passed his throne to Shawn Rhoden, a conflict between them became noticeable.
Kai supported the victory of Shawn Rhoden and criticized Heath in his posts on social sites. He was not shy to reveal his real attitude to Phil Heath, calling his shape ‘far from perfect’.
Kai Greene is known for being creative in his speeches and having a great sense of humor. He has often been creative while criticizing Phil Heath after his loss in 2018. Kai’s posts and comments have got a lot of attention and support, what makes Phil Heath react on them.
Many bodybuilding fans decided that Kai is just another jealous hater of the former champion. It could be very possible as Heath was taking the first place of Olympia for seven years, giving the chance to no one else including Kai Greene. However, many people have supported Kai and called his comments objective and fair.
To understand the real matter of the conflict, Kai was asked if he thought he could beat Heath this year. Greene looked ready for the question, however, he didn’t give a clear answer. Kai likes to keep the intrigue, so instead of saying clear ‘yes’ or ‘no’, he told his listeners a story about an alternative reality where ‘Kai Greene is 2018 Mr. Olympia’.
Such a story didn’t give any clear understanding of the reasons for the conflict, however, it was very entertaining.
