So you want someone who impregnated Mae Young to become WWE champion?

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

He peaked too late unfortunately. That's the truth of the matter regarding Henry, whether the race card has anything to do with it. I don't think with Henry it matters too much because he only really started coming into his own in 2011. The other times they pushed him it failed either because of injury problems or it wasn't getting over.

Booker T: Now there is a guy who should have been a WWE Champion at some point in his career and didn't. That has a legitimate case for racism being a real reason.

I'd say back 5-10 years ago there was too much star power for him to be WWE champion. Can't say the same for today's product, especially when Rock leaves after WM. Mark deserves at least one run with it before he retires.

This is a racist comment. You may be too ignorant to realize, but this is a racist comment. All black people sound the same? If you sound educated and know how to pronounce words properly you're white? That's stupid and you know it.

He's the only champion that matters, that's for sure.

Wade Barret was hardly ever an IWC favorite, let alone the golden boy. What are you talking about?

Its not crazy to think "What if The Rock looked like Booker T, R-Truth or Mark Henry? Would he have become WWE Champion?".

Hard to pass off NEVER having a Black WWE Champion off as some coincidence. There have been enough talented wrestlers that were in a position to be pushed but never got it.

Ron Simmons

Booker T - completely absurd that he never held the belt in a time where it was passed around like Kelly Kelly's vagina.

R-Truth - poised & ready to win it in 2011. Got buried by Cena and then had his angle STOLEN. 2011 should have been the Summer or Truth.

MVP - Had the talent. He had a long US Title reign where afterward he could have been pushed toward a World Title but instead go buried. Maybe his criminal past held him back but doesn't seem like since they pushed him as US Champion hard.

Shelton Benjamin - One of the best wrestler during his time in WWE. Didn't have the mic skills but neither did RVD, Jeff Hardy, Rey Mysterio, Batista(early on), Alberto Del Rio but it didn't stop them. He was ready for a push after his series of matches with Triple H.

Kofi Kingston - He should have won the Royal Rumble in 2009. In his feud w/ Orton he showed he could get VERY over, work main event matches, & cut at least decent promos. Instead of getting a push, he got buried over a botch that didn't effect the match. Edge won the Royal Rumble that year. Edge? Like he really needed that.

Mark Henry - he didn't just get better in 2011. He could have pulled that Hall of Pain gimmick off back in 05. He was the same guy.


Honestly, Asians have it worse. lol
Booker T and MVP IMO are the only one's that actually had the talent to gain the WWE Championship besides Mark Henry. R-Truth is old and messed things up for himself. Shelton Benjamin is Shelton Benjamin, Kofi Kingston maybe, and you're delusional if you think Godfather could've ever become WWE Champion with the talent he was rubbing elbows with back then were gunning for it.

The Rock is black. Just because some of you have your preconceived racist notions of what a black person is doesn't mean The Rock isn't black.

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

@ the comments in here about what a black person is supposed to look like or sound like.

As for Henry, he truly was a late bloomer and has only gotten better with age. I think it is fine that he hasn't been WWE Champion at this point in his career. He did a great job with his run as World Heavyweight Champion and his 2011 heel run up today for the most part. However, I wouldn't mind if he was to get another run with the World Title or even the WWE Title this year. Henry's one of the best heels in business imo.

Booker T was the only black person who had enough talent to hold the WWE title, but he didn't get it in the end.

Stop being delusional people.

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

poor planning on WWEs part

having the worlds strongest man as your wrestling champion sounds like a match made in heaven but it means having to have Mark get one-ups on the more popular charasmatic main eventers and Vince is pretty hesitant to go the whole haul every time Mark henry gets a push
