Mark Henry

At the risk of posting another topic that will get flamed down...

Mark Henry, who is working on being a heel in OVW, is said to be on the bubble, and if this current direction doesn’t work, might be let go.

I think this is interesting for two-fold reasons...

One, we may never have to see Mark again. Unless, of course, he goes to TNA, where LuckyLopez wil have to sit through his matches.

And Two, does anyone else dig the idea of a heel Mark? If he went all monster heel, and started bouncing people around. ..and as long as he wore his nice suits.

Mark Henry is along the lines of A-Train to me. He has the size to be a monster in the ring, but he just has no charisma to speak of. If they are willing to move him to RAW I think he would be perfect as Teddy Long's enforcer/bodyguard.

I presume that's some sort of seal but I can't seem to make out what its inscribed with...

The point is, that when you are scrolled down a bit and just the bottom half of that avatar is on screen and that little part is hanging down...

...well for a second there I thought it was a substantial move away from Trish.

Whatever happened to Hughes anyway? After the Gotch Gracie thing with Jericho he just disappeared as quickly as he showed up... Oops, never mind, probably better suited to be asked on the Ask The Rick board.

Mark Henry has had charisma in the past. How quickly did you forget about "Sexual Chocolate"? He had a good thing going on there, until the Chyna hires a hermaphrodite to make out with him, so as to prove that he's a cheating bastard and humiliate him all at once, angle.

And what's the deal with Chyna anyway? She must be a total bore in the sack if every man she's ever hooked up with decided that they had to run around on her to get their kicks.





The award for the most laughable cringe-worthy attempt at clever colour commentary goes to:

First, I was being facetious. Mark could work in TNA... maybe. I think he could work for many people as a bodyguard, in TNA or WWE. TNA's got one of those so I think WWE should keep him and do what doublee said... and that has nothing to do with my desire to not see him on TNA...

Second, you guys need to stop stealing my bit. I talk about TNA on these boards. I'm the one who gets soundly ignored and occasionally humored by being asked TNA questions. You guys go develop a bizarre obsession with ROH or something...

Yeah... that was a good gimmick for him... kinda like a Barry White on steroids.

Brilliant... they could've done a celebrity feud between Mark Henry and Rueben Studdard...

...kinda like the Bam Bam vs. Lawrence Taylor thing.

Clay Aiken could serenade Rueben to the ring.

Oh... it would be so lovely.

They can't release Henry can they?, I heard that the reason for the transvestite, Mae Young, etc humiliation storylines were Vince trying to get him to quit because he signed a HUGE water tight 10 year contract or something just after he was at the Olympics.

They could always pay out the rest of his contract, or some to some sort of agreement, couldn't they?

yeah but the way I heard it he's got a Big Show-esq contract, possibly even with a buy-out clause so Vince would probably rather push him against the odds(like he did before he got injured) or trying to make him quit.

Honestly, with Teddy Long, Rodney Mack, and Christopher Nowinski RIGHT THERE, adding Mark Henry as the powerhouse seems like a no-brainer.

A Mark Henry/Rodney Mack team with Teddy Long hollerin at the playas could be a good stopgap until Harvard gets over the post-concusion syndrome. Then Mack could transition into a Big Show-ish Henchman character...

Remember, all they need to do is give him a feat of strength to perform on a face (I'd love to see him baseball bat-swing a table into Bubba Ray Dudley personally) and the fans would see him in a better light.

And please....no more Sexual Chocolate...

Well, the other part of that is that it's a 10 year contract. Mark started when? In like 95, or 96? That's maybe 3 years left to pay out. It sin't inconcievable that they would just pay that part out now.
