I believe he would have been a winner at an amateur level at just about any physical sport he chose. Can't forget the quote by Reeves before the 400 lb pinch DL.
Apparently, some dude in his gym commented on his BB style training and that he lacked true strength (those were the days of Grimek and Park, so it wasn't just about looking strong but being strong). Reeves response was classic. All he said was "I can be as strong as I choose to be", and proceeded to load the bar to 400 lbs, and pinch deadlifted it.
