Mark Jerrold Henry (born June 12, 1971) is an American powerlifter, Olympic weightlifter, strongman, and professional wrestler who is currently signed to WWE. He was two times an Olympian in 1992 and 1996 and a Silver, Gold and Bronze Medalist at the Pan American Games in 1995. As a powerlifter, he was drug-free World Champion (1995) and a two time U.S. National Champion (1995 and 1997) as well as an all-time raw world record holder in the squat and deadlift. Currently, he still holds the WDFPF world records in the squat, deadlift and total and the USAPL American record in the deadlift since 1995. He is credited for the biggest raw squat and raw powerlifting total ever performed by a drug tested athlete, regardless of weight class, as well as the greatest raw deadlift by an American citizen. In weightlifting, Henry was a three time U.S. National Weightlifting Champion (1993,1994,1996), an American Open winner (1992), a two time U.S. Olympic Festival Champion (1993 and 1994) and a NACAC champion (1996). He holds all three Senior US American weightlifting records of 1993-1997. In 2002 he won the first annual Arnold Strongman Classic.
From his Wikipedia page. So there are some reasons for the claim especially for doing so while being drug free. --- "Vampire Penguins...Zombie Guinea Pigs...We're done for!" Some British Dude's Random Sleep Talk
I always wondered cause sure, he set records and is a total beast of a guy strength wise but I've always watched World's Strongest Man on tv since the early 90s (and the competition's been going since the 70s) but Mark's never been on that.
Be cool to see him and multi-time World's Strongest Man winner Mariusz Pudzianowski (5 time winner) go at it in competition. --- Getting awfully tired of GameFAQs mods removing my posts for being "offensive" when I've done nothing wrong
