Mark Henry amazingly spent the entirety of his professional career with the WWE. Henry was signed by WWE in 1996 and was initially known as his lovable “Sexual Chocolate” character, before transitioning into a more fierce persona in “The World’s Strongest Man.” Henry’s feats on WWE TV include being a part of The Nation Of Domination, competing against The Undertaker at WrestleMania, and pulling off one of the best swerves on WWE TV when he faked his retirement and attacked John Cena.
During his time with WWE, Henry won an ECW World Title, a WWE World Heavyweight Championship, and a WWE European Championship. He was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame as a part of the 2018 class. Recently, Henry joined the “E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness” podcast to talk about his career in the WWE.
Henry revealed that he believes his best work with the company was when he began the “Hall Of Pain”:
“That was probably my best work and I was given the word to do what I wanted, which I never had in my career. I had the freedom to have a promo segment against someone like John Cena, and I can go out there and say, listen, just because you won a bunch of championships, and just because the company is behind you and because you do Make-A-Wish and that everybody loves you, doesn’t mean that I do.
“When I see you on this date and this time, I am going to bury you and all of these people that clamor behind you are just a bunch of puppets. They love you because everybody else loves you, so they’re followers.”
