no, he was in a strongest man competition, which he didn't win. He earned the nick name the same way big show used to be over 500 pounts, when he was really 450 - 480

He set world powerlifting records in deadlift and squats. In high school.

He's pretty damn strong.

I wouldn't go that far, it's more or else just WWE using the fact he was in a strongest man competition to their own benefit, most people who watch aren't smart enough to do any research on the subject at all and just take WWE at their word.

I never said it wasn't a fact, although i was wrong, apprently he came in first place at the Arnolds worlds strongest man competition. Atleast if his wikipedia is correct, don't get me wrong Henry is strong like a beast, but saying someone is the strongest man in the world is a pretty major claim.
