Mark Henry

Mark Henry

Mark Henry has been consistently a powerhouse in the WWE since the very beginning. As the winner of the World's Strongest Man competition in 1995, he signed with the WWE in 1996. He inked a ten year deal with the company at the age of 26. He was trained by Stu Hart and immediately joined the Nation of Domination. Alongside with Farooq and The Rock, Henry was able to learn from some of the best entertainers from the very start.

His achievements are not as great as others, since it took him 15 years to win the World Championship, but he has gotten better with age. His best run came in 2011 by beating Randy Orton for the World Heavyweight Championship and getting the opportunity to hold that prestigious title for a solid run on Smackdown.

Standing 6 foot 4 and weighing at over 400 pounds, Mark Henry will be remembered for impregnating Mae Young, and her birth to a hand. This infamous moment shows you how funny and how much Henry wanted to do whatever it took to succeed. He is extremely intelligent, knows how to script promos, and will be a great teacher for other heavyweights in the future.
