Re: Best life story to the top
I read an article when Mark Henry's WHC run was just starting out about his rise to the top, n it really is a touching story. He originally got signed due to his buzz in the powerlifting community, n cuz he was pretty much guaranteed to take home a gold medal in Olympic powerlifting. They gave him a ridiculously huge amount of money. However, he got injured and couldn't compete in the Olympics. Then they got a hold of Kurt Angle, who actually had a gold medal. That made Henry "useless" in their eyes. Vince tried to get Henry to leave so he wouldn't have to pay that insane contract, which is why Mark got involved with the Mae Young angle, why he kissed a tranny, why X-Pac put on black face to mock him, and of course all the jabs at his weight. But the guy just rolled with the punches, invested his money, and just stuck it out, and eventually became world champ. Batista gets honorable mention too.

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.
