Mark Henry Talks About Life Outside Of WWE, His Early Days In WWE

0

WWE Superstar Mark Henry recently appeared on actor/comedian Jay Mohr’s “Mohr Stories” podcast.

The two discussed Henry’s recent feud with former WWE Champion John Cena, and how he reached out to celebrities and used Twitter to foreshadow his retirement from pro wrestling. Mohr stated that Henry even worked him over, telling him weeks before the event that he was “tired” and “sick of waking up with his knees hurting”, even convincing his friends that he was headed towards retirement. Mark’s wife Jana was on hand for the interview, and confirmed that Henry even told her he was planning on retiring almost one month before giving John Cena the World’s Strongest Slam on Monday Night Raw.

Here are some highlights of what Henry said about:

Maintaining A Home Life While Being A WWE Superstar:

“I want to be known as a great dad more than anything. Kids – young men find it uncool to be a dad I think. It’s very cool to me … I love being at home with my kids. I got pissed yesterday because I get a call and a video, that my daughter swam for the first time without the floaties on. I miss all that kind of stuff.”

Having Issues With JBL Early In His WWE Career:

“I used to have an issue with Bradshaw . When I was young, he used to pick on me. Ribbing is a part of wrestling. That’s the way they show a fondness for you – they play practical jokes on you. They put your wrestling gear in plastic bags and throw it in the shower. Just stupid stuff. They hazed me – I wanted to fight everybody. They were like ‘look man, you’ve gotta quit trying to fight everybody. We’re trying to be brothers with you.’ It took a while for me to understand that. John is one of the people I respect most in the business now.”
