Re: LMAO if Henry loses the Weight Lifting Contest this Friday

Have any of these gimmick competitions ever ended cleanly?


God, this third hour of Raw really drags...

I've read the spoilers and what we got is much better. I really gotta see it because it sounds hilarious.

He also kinda lost in a arm-wrestling contest a few years back against Cena, who is smaller than Ryback.

Won't be that bad.

That said, let's discuss the facts before we really get our panties in a twist over this.

1: Mark Henry is MUCH older now than when he was in the World's Strongest Man competition. That was back in the mid 90's. Many posters on here weren't even born yet. He isn't as strong as he used to be since he isn't actively training for it like he was back then.
He won the strongman in 2002 so I don't know where you got your information from. Unless you're talking about the pan american games. But that's not the WSM.

2: Ryback isn't exactly a bitch. He's probably stronger than everyone else on the roster with the exception of Mark Henry, Brock Lesnar, and possibly Big Show.

3: It's a television program that isn't supposed to be always realistic. You can't seriously be bitching about this and not about far more unrealistic stuff like CM Punk knocking The Rock over repeatedly with shoulder blocks when Rock is nearly 100 lbs heavier and twice as strong, and also not getting easily overpowered by John Cena when they lock up when Cena is nearly twice as strong as he is too.


Because of all that, I wouldn't be pissed if they booked Ryback to beat Mark Henry by 5-15 lbs or something. Yes, Mark Henry is probably still stronger than Ryback, but it isn't like they're putting someone who's half as strong as Henry over him. It would at least be somewhat close in reality, so it's acceptable to me if that's the outcome. Definitely not a travesty, unlike putting someone like Health Slater over him in a weightlifting contest, which we could rightly bitch about. This? Not bitch worthy imo.
Henry did a video interview a few months back during his recovery phase where he said that he still trains the way he used to, and that he can still deadlift 900 lbs. He's far stronger than Ryback and it's ridiculous comparing them, the strength/power difference between the two is about as big as the difference between Ryback and Evan Bourne, and that's not even an exagerration which makes their weightlifting contest all the more hilarious.

Marks for Austin Aries/D Bryan crew

Creams himself over Lesnars Entrance crew

Prefers watching wrestling intoxicated crew

Scott Steiner is the real GOAT crew

WF metal crew

Yeah, it's not the WSM competition. He was doing that in the 90's. The Arnold Strongman Classic (the one you're referring to), isn't very well known. A lot of the same guys do compete there though. Also, to be fair, that was over a decade ago.

Btw, I'm a big Mark Henry fan, in case you think I'm trying to bash him or something. He's been one of my top 5 favorite wrestlers for quite awhile now. I've never disliked him.

I didn't know that. Do you have a link?

Also, their power difference isn't the same as between Ryback and Bourne, dude stop. Ryback is one of the top 3-5 strongest on the roster, Bourne is like bottom 5.

Re: LMAO if Henry loses the Weight Lifting Contest this Friday

Also have a feeling Cesaro is up there after watching that workout promo, he has crazy stability and control. For awhile they were high on his strength and the crowd reacted, think they are trying to protect Ryback after Cesaro did the Neutralizer on Khali. Only seen one workout vid for Ryback and he doesn't seem like he's just a meathead, comes across that he has some knowledge but guessing he doesn't do a lot of cross training.

Interested in seeing this on Smackdown because that can get real dangerous with real weights around.


It's the right word. Jerkass.

Ryback on the other hand probably cant even bench 315 or squat 405 and doesn't even know what a deadlift is
those are pounds right ?

Does it end with someone blowing their asshole out? Too bad it's not live tv, I guess we'd never see it.

Yeah I'm calling shennanigans on that segment. Ryback's a beast but there's no way he can out lift Henry.
