2022 Rogue Invitational Roster: Guilherme Malheiros Out, Henrik Haapalainen In

The Rogue Invitational takes place on October 28-30 in Austin, Texas.

There was a late change for the 2022 Rogue Invitational roster. Brazilian powerhouse and 10th Fittest Man on Earth Guilherme Malheiros has been dropped from the list of competitors at the Rogue Invitational and Finnish athlete Henrik Haapalainen confirmed he is competing.

Guilherme Malheiros was programmed to compete at the Rogue Invitational this year, but unexpectedly his name does not appear any longer in the list. Instead, Henrik Haapalainen is going to Austin to compete among the fittest of the fittest in the Sport.

As of the time of writing, Malheiros has not clarified why he is no longer competing at Rogue. In a Q&A on his Instagram stories, Malheiros said he is staying in Brazil “until December.”

The organisation itself also has not provided further explanation for the swap in the 2022 Rogue Invitational roster.

Henrik Haapalainen is this year’s 24th Fittest Man on Earth. He posted a photo on his Instagram saying he placed 6th in the qualifiers round of the Rogue Invitational and “got a spot to compete there.” He also did not mention Malheiros or any further reasoning.
