WWE SmackDown superstar and former WWE World Heavyweight Champion, “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry is featured in an interview with SoulTrain.com, where he discusses what he can bring to the table with a character in pro wrestling.
“The psychology part of what I do, and what people in the industry I’m in do, is paramount. In a professional wrestling match, sports entertainment…you use everything you have. As far as me using all of that – my experience as a weightlifter, a powerlifter, a strongman – I’ve always been a “Type A” personality. I always tried to entertain the crowd where people didn’t entertain. That’s one of the reasons Vince McMahon thought I’d be a success in professional [wrestling], because of the fact I entertained. In order to celebrate you have to win. I wanted to celebrate. And I didn’t win because I wanted to celebrate, but it came with it.”
