At times, it's hard to argue about comments like that, based on some things Mr.McMahon has done or said on TV(notably the Booker T moment on Raw). Makes me wonder how things would be diff with HHH/Steph running things. Steph being part of the "be a star" stuff, would be huge hypocrite if she ends up doing similar things her dad did in the company regarding a topic like this.

And as for HHH:

I'm so sick and tired of reading stupid racist accusations.

Henry was never that good and there were always people a lot better than him.

That's why.

Don't you even have a little hope buried deep down in your heart that maybe one day Barrett will win one of the big ones, at least the WHC?

I mean look at Christian, and yes, I know he's not English and I know he won it in the first place due to some lucky circumstances, but you always said that he would never be a World Champion, and you were proved wrong. Maybe something like that can happen again.

Never say never!

People bitched for years about Henry and they just had no plans to push him right. At least now he has a World Title reign under his belt and who knows, maybe one more before its done.

Re: How can "The Worlds Strongest Man" never have been WWE champion?

Have you seen Mark Henry for the past 16 years?

I'll say this. His World Title run a while back was not only the best run he ever had....it was the only good one. And even that was nothing cutting edge or new. They basically took the big man and actually had him win. It really wasn't that different from his runs in 2004 & 2006. The only change was that they had him win, so he came off as more credible.

Before that though, I remember shitty awful Henry that was around forever and ever and ever and ever and was always in line for big pushes and always either sucked or he always got hurt. Him being injury prone has been a massive problem as he always feels like he is one of those guys that always has a push cut short because he gets hurt. Again, this isn't a recent thing. It has been going on for most of his career. Now I guess you could say the same thing about Edge, but Edge was at least good! I missed Edge whenever he was off TV.

I don't think I can think of anybody that got as many chances as he did to get over. It really is one of the most peculiar cases in wrestling history.

Now when you look at Mark Henry's career, he was on the same roster as The Rock, The Undertaker, Steve Austin, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, Edge, Randy Orton, Mick Foley, The Big Show (he wasn't even the only big guy around!), Brock Lesnar, John Cena, Kane, & CM Punk, all while they were in their primes. Not to mention the roster of guys he was surrounded with like Carlito, Shelton Bejamin, Christian, and various others that had potential but didn't that big push in the end for one reason or another. Would you push Henry over those guys? Hell the only reason he got a World Title run in the first place is because there are two World Titles and that doubles the amount of World Title spots.

The Mae young incident ruined his chances for sure

I did not, I repeat, I did not sleep with that young intern, as a matter of fact, I was up all night!

Re: How can "The Worlds Strongest Man" never have been WWE champion?

Same reason Dino Bravo wasn't WWE champion, they both sucked. I don't know what happened, but ever since Henry joined with Striker in '08 he's gotten better in every regard, but still not good enough to be WWE champion.

Re: How can "The Worlds Strongest Man" never have been WWE champion?

Because Mark Henry just isn't THAT great. I mean, I stopped watching WWE around 2005 or so and even then I was wondering why the fuck were they bothering with this guy. He seemed to make a 'big return' every couple of years and nobody gave a shit. Then in 2011 he finally gives it some welly and becomes the perfect heel monster. Sorry, but too little too late.

In fact, yeah what TripleG said. Another case for scrapping two world titles right there.
