"The World's Strongest Man" and one of the absolute best things in wrestling is celebrating a birthday today. That's right, Mark Henry from Silsbee, Texas turns 42 years old today.
So far as it relates to the wrestling industry it is fair to say that Mark was a late bloomer. Once he hit his stride he hit it HARD. Few, if any, guys in the business today can project a legitimately threatening vibe the way Henry does. The little things such as his jawing with the crowd and his opponent are critical components of his success. It certainly does not hurt that he has a unique look either. It is rare you find human beings that are built like Mark Henry, that's for sure.
Anyhow, I don't always make it a point to celebrate birthdays here on SAW, but SAW favorite Mark Henry deserved a mention. I hope the big guy has a happy birthday and that his path of destruction is heading back to my television soon. It makes for a more interesting WWE when the Hall of Pain is open for inductions.
