Professional wrestling has always been filled with hulking masses of humanity, doing battle to establish their supremacy over the competition. However, some titans towered over even the biggest Superstars.
Sometimes, these giants of the squared circle team up, resulting in complete devastation. Much like the duo of Big E Langston and Mark Henry on the Nov. 25 edition of Raw, these gargantuan grapplers left nothing but destruction in their paths. The carnage they caused seemed like something out of a monster movie, but for their opponents, it was very, very real and extremely painful.
Mark Henry recently appeared on “Mohr Stories” podcast and spoke with Jay Mohr about maintaining a home life while being a WWE Superstar.
“I want to be known as a great dad more than anything. Kids – young men find it uncool to be a dad I think. It’s very cool to me … I love being at home with my kids. I got pissed yesterday because I get a call and a video, that my daughter swam for the first time without the floaties on. I miss all that kind of stuff.”

I was going to write a blog tonight about the return of Big Show to the WWE, but I was taken aback by something said last week by Mark Henry in his interview with Peter Rosenberg last week.
Henry, who is arguably one of the greatest big men in WWE history, said he wanted to be known as one of the 10 best of all time.
Memo to Henry: You are already there.

Mark Henry was recently interviewed by WithLeather.com. Here are some highlights:
His five-year-plan for his heralded fake retirement speech:
Well, I mean, I’m a constant entertainer. It’s something that I thought of four years ago, five years ago when I signed my contract. ‘At the end of this contract, I’m going to retire and I’m going to have everybody ready for me to retire, and then I’ll get ‘em just the way I want to.’ It’s funny, [this] five-year plan. The only thing that can come to mind is Hannibal in The A-Team: “I love it when a plan comes together.”

As previously reported, WWE superstar Mark Henry was interviewed on Tuesday by the Power 92.3 radio station in Little Rock, Arkansas to promote this week’s Smackdown tapings. We posted a video of the interview earlier today, here’s a transcript of some of the highlights of what Henry said about:
The WWE Locker Room’s Reaction To The Rock:
“Rock is a great talent, but nobody’s taking pictures and asking for autographs. He’s a wonderful talent, he’s one of us, we respect him [and] he respects what we do. We just go about it and try to take advantage of the situation. He’s one of those that’s recognizable in many realms, and we appreciate him for coming back and still loving what we do and doing what he calls home.”
