In our current generation, that distinction may well belong to Rubiel Mosquera, better known as Neckzilla, a rising star whose freak factor has left the bodybuilding community in awe.

Samson Dauda, the Nigerian powerhouse and the third-best bodybuilder globally, recently shared his insights on the burgeoning career of Neckzilla during Fouad Abiad’s Bro Chat Podcast on YouTube. 

Samson Dauda, having shared the stage with Rubiel Mosquera, couldn’t help but express his admiration for the young bodybuilder’s unique attributes.

Before delving into the phenomenon that is Neckzilla, it’s crucial to acknowledge the achievements of Samson Dauda, also known as ‘The Nigerian Lion.’

His triumphant year concluded with a gold medal at the prestigious EVLS Prague Pro.

While securing victories for himself, Samson Dauda couldn’t ignore the conspicuous presence of Rubiel ‘Neckzilla’ Mosquera on the EVLS Prague Pro stage. 

Rubiel Mosquera, who earned his Pro card just a day before at the EVLS Prague Pro Amateur, made a remarkable Pro debut, finishing third behind Michal Krizanek and the champion, Samson Dauda.

One defining feature that sets Neckzilla apart is his incredibly large nape, measuring an astounding 20 inches—five inches larger than the average male neck. 

This distinctive trait has earned him the moniker ‘Neckzilla,’ a fitting title for a bodybuilder who is turning heads and making waves in the industry.

Samson Dauda’s Impression of Neckzilla

Samson Dauda, during the Bro Chat Podcast, shared his perspective on Rubiel Mosquera, emphasizing the significance of having a ‘freak’ in every generation of bodybuilding.

“Every generation has to have their freak, right? You have the Ramy, you have the Markus Ruhl. Every generation has to have that one freak. I think we just found ours in our generation because he’s extremely freaky, and it’s that freakiness that draws your eyes to it. Just like wow,” remarked Samson Dauda.

In the realm of bodybuilding, where competitors are evaluated pose by pose, Samson Dauda acknowledged the distinctiveness of Neckzilla’s physique, stating, “In a whole world of just freak factor, he has it in spades.”

Neckzilla’s Trajectory: A Comparison with Michal Krizo

The ascent of Neckzilla in the bodybuilding world has drawn comparisons to Michal Krizo’s journey. 

Michal Krizo transitioned to the NPC after earning his pro card at the 2022 Amateur Olympia Italy, showcasing a blend of definition, conditioning, and balance.

However, according to Samson Dauda, Neckzilla appears to lack the balance that Michal Krizo effortlessly brings to the stage. Samson Dauda explained, “It wasn’t close (between Rubiel and Krizo). 

It wasn’t because of size and conditioning it’s just that balance where Michal Krizo is a lot more balanced between upper body and lower body, but with him [Neckzilla], when he walks out, it’s almost like the lower body and the upper body belong to two different people.”

Despite the apparent disparity, the bodybuilding community recognizes Neckzilla’s potential, with influential figures like Chris Cormier predicting a groundbreaking future for the aspiring mass monster.
