Mark Henry is the WSM

(Not anymore obviously)
If WWE want to market a SERIOUSLY powerful man like Henry, as '2002 world's strongest man', why do they let other people easily overpower him?
I know it's not a good idea to make him like superman, but the way certain people take him out in the ring is beyond me.

Realistically, he's slower than most people like Punk and Bryan, right? Right.

But he's stronger in real life than probably 80% of the roster, including Cena (who is pretty strong I give him that), Brock (likely nearly even), HHH, Taker, The Rock, Khali, Kane (who is strong too apparently, or was before the injury in early 00s), etc.

Regardless, even if Henry isn't the strongest man in the locker room anymore, (it's been 10 years since he won Arnold Classic) he should still be overpowering people, throwing them around like bloody ragdolls because he's the worlds strongest man in kayfabe anyway.

Likely to be disagreed with, though.

Re: Mark Henry is the WSM

Worlds Strongest Man is just a gimmick. He's never won the actual WSM title, or even competed in the official event. I think he's won a few strong man competitions here and there but never the official WSM title. I've never liked him as a performer personally, very little charisma or talent for that matter.

Arnold Classic?
If it isn't "Worlds strongest man" it's at least "One of the worlds strongest men".

Re: Mark Henry is the WSM

But strength doesnt make that much difference if the person you are fighting is really strong too.

Are you expecting Henry to be just punching people and they go flying into the crowd or something?

Hustle, Loyalty & Respect.

YES! YES! YES!

He actually beat Phil Pfister, who went on to win the 2006 World's Strongest Man competition (the real one; the one they used to show on ESPN2).

As for kayfabe, I think they're doing just fine with him.

When he came out for his match after Punk's heated promo, it sounded like the crowd actually gasped like "Oh shit, and he has a match against Mark Henry now?"

He's the most convincing monster in wrestling right now, even if they occasionally job him out on RAW.

I'm expecting him to turn Super Saiyan next time he gets angry.

I'm watching you...

Re: Mark Henry is the WSM

Stronger than 80% of the roster? Lol, he's the strongest guy in the company in terms of brute strength, by far. Lesnar might have more functional strength due to his NCAA and MMA background, but that's it. Mark is,(rather, was) legitimately one of the strongest people on the planet. I'm pretty sure he holds world records in raw squat, and deadlift.
