English term or phrase: that didn't look like any 100%
Two wrestlers meet in the gym before a match and taunt each other:

Johnny Awsome: Tiger man, you're wasting your time thinking this last minute workout will make a difference.

Tiger man: Johnny, I'm just making sure because I'm going to bring my full force tonight so I can watch you cry as you pack your bags!

Johnny Awsome: Whatever. You were a joke when I faced you the last time and **that didn't look like any 100%**!

I miss the "didn't look like any 100%" part. I understand that "100%" is commonly used to describe a full effort. Could it mean "I'm not impressed by your training?" It sounds odd to me...

Thank you
