Breaking records, pumping iron and devastating opponents with his unmatched strength, it's no wonder they call Mark Henry "The World's Strongest Man."
Henry's rise to fame began in 1992 at the Olympics in Barcelona, where he competed in weightlifting in the super-heavyweight division.
Three years later at the Pan American Games, Henry captured a gold, silver and bronze medal, solidifying his place as one of the strongest men ever to walk the planet. He has also engaged in Strongman competitions, including the 2002 "World's Strongest Man" competition at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic, where Henry earned first prize.
The intimidating powerhouse began his WWE career in 1996, instantly igniting a nightmarish squared circle onslaught in which he laid waste to one adversary after another, both in tag team and singles competition. This included the immense Superstar's membership in the infamous faction known as The Nation of Domination, which also featured The Rock.
Over the years, Henry has gone toe-to-toe with top stars such as Shawn Michaels, John Cena, Undertaker, Kane and Big Show. In every instance, his commanding presence has demanded the fear and respect of any Superstar he steps into the ring with.
And the future looks frightening for anybody that gets in Henry's way. After battling back from many obstacles including periods of down time and uncertainty due to injuries suffered through the years of his career, he stands tall at the top of his game, more ferocious than ever and ready to take on all comers.
