I’m an intermittent WWE Network subscriber. I picked it up last month for the Rumble, and while it’s not set to auto-renew, I’ll pick it up again for ‘Mania. It was good timing this time around because not only did I get to enjoy a spectacular Halftime Heat during the Super Bowl, I got to see the debut of the new documentary about Mark Henry.
If you didn’t see it after the PPV last night, make time to watch it this week. It has all the great memories you want to relive (the faux retirement speech in the salmon colored jacket) as well as the ones that make you cringe (Mae Young). It also pulls back the curtain to reveal the genuine, humble person he is in real life. As strong as his body is, his heart is ten times stronger. The film details the many losses he’s suffered personally and professionally, and the hard lessons learned in and out of the ring. The film also highlights the loving father and husband who truly believes his kids are his greatest legacy.
If you’re not already a fan of Mark Henry, the World’s Strongest Man documentary will make you one. It’s a stellar reintroduction to the WWE Hall of Famer and soon to be Cauliflower Alley Club Award Winner. You can stream is now on the WWE Network.
