Technically Mark Henry never won a "World's Strongest Man" competition. I think that's the argument that's being made.
That argument is true, but I hope they're not sitting there and neglecting the fact that he has won at several top notch competitions and has olympic medals and championships to his credit.
I'm also pretty sure Mark Henry beat the reigning WSM winner at the first Arnold Strongman classic too. So there is at least an argument that he was the strongest man in the world at that point in time.
