Can Joseph live up to Arnold’s bodybuilding legacy?

Whenever a child tries to do what the world knows his/her father for, comparisons are inevitable. People will always see David Beckham in Romeo, Michael Schumacher in Mick, or Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson in Simone. Hence, the same goes for Arnold’s son as well. He has given fans hope that he can be the next bodybuilding legend like his father.

Arnold’s son is a physically gifted bodybuilder just like him. But what’s more important is his love for the sport. He wants to carry forward his father’s legacy as a champion bodybuilder and then as an action superstar. Although it’s not going to be easy for sure, the good thing is he has the legend himself to guide him through the journey. However, nobody could surely say what awaits him in the future.
