As the show starts, most fans can't wait for the bodybuilding, they can't wait for the benching, in prays of 800+ pounds falling, but the bodybuilding wasn't the show, the benching was loaded with bomb outs and no records-- The show was the strongman, the amazement was in the strongman, the STRONGMAN contest took the cake, with amazing events and even more amazing combatants performing.
So Mark Henry walks onto the platform, he looks like a MACHINE, his eyes glow, the audience looks at this gorilla of a man! Henry, makes Dexter Jackson the bodybuilding champ look like a little underwear model, Henry makes Arnold look like a pencil neck geek and Henry was where everyone's eyes are locked onto! The place quiets, the cameras flash, everyone was ready to Rock N Roll... And Henry is READY TO PUT ON THE SHOW!
Henry steps onto the platform! The crowd looks at Henry in shock, HENRY feels everyone here and on the other side with him. The competitors play their videos in their mind, adjust the remote controls of their mind, they make sure the volume and pictures of their videos are clear, so stage freight doesn't own them all night as Henry plays a video in his mind when he set the record, but this time he HAS PASSION IN THIS LIFT.THIS TIME IT'S HENRY'S LAST CHANCE... His mom roams in his passion; she is with him, the power of HENRY Going CRAZY. It is time to begin!

Wwe Mark Henry RKOSo, the toughest event, The Pollon's wheel is first. Is Henry ready? With all that has happened to him, he thinks so, the fans think so, everyone watching at home thinks so and the freaky events no longer seem so freaky, not compared to Henry, at this point Henry is so scary that no goals can be compared and the beauty is the fans were about to witness it and boy would they ever-
So Henry goes up to the wheel and does something that has never been seen before, HE CLEANS AND JERKS it 3 times!! This feat was unheard of. Henry had just taken strength to a whole new dimension! Then it was time for the deadlift....Brian Schoonveld maxes out at 675, Phil Phister gets up to 715, Karlsen then shocks the world with a 775 deadlift! Up next, Raimands Bergamis deadlifts 815 for a rep..Then the strongman from the US, Phillippi, nails 825 as a max and then Brad Gillingham who lives for the deadlift and has a deadlift body finishes with 845!...

Wwe Mark Henry Smling StyleThe smoke then hits, the fans eyes water, Henry the monster comes up... The bar is loaded to 885! Henry grabs the bar and deadlifts 885 for 2 easy reps, going light years beyond the contest! everyone raises their fist "MARK HENRY IS THE MAN, yaaaaaaaaa!!" Then Andy Bolten goes up he sees the crowd cheering for Henry, the physics of the meet have changed the monster in Bolten's head into a better on and it was time to be RELEASED.. , So Bolten grabs the 885 and gets 3 reps!!! History has been made! The greatest strength show ever is being witnessed..
Mark Henry Shocks the World! All dimensions of reality are going on the ride of their lives and the audience doesn't know what world they are in, but it's special. The music of the audience pumps in their blood as the events continue- Henry quickly pushes the hummer to the finish line.YES!! Then Henry carries an 800+ frame of timber to the finish line with ease... And then the events come to a close... Arnold then knows it is time for him to announce the champion! The winner of the Arnold Classic is.. MARK HENRY!!!!!!!!!
People run to the message boards all over the net, the bench contest that everyone wanted to see doesn't get acknowledged, what does is what Mark Henry has just conquered! Henry had just FREAKED out all the freaks in the world! Henry was all of a sudden thought of as greater than Kaz, greater than Paul Anderson, "HOW" went through the crowds minds. How can this man be way out of strongman shape, train for a very short period of time and then be stronger than the other freaks who work at it for their whole lives? What a freakin mystery thought the world!
And that wasn't enough.. Without even much training, with very little effort, Henry was going to do something that no other lifter has done before. Henry took the 175 plus pounds of the "un-liftable" THICK Thomas dumbbell with 1 arm and lift it over his head! Who else can claim to be the best in America at Olympic lifting, powerlifting and strongman? Who else can with barely any time to get there! Only Henry! What could Henry have done if he just stuck with powerlifting or strongman? That will always be unknown, but what Henry achieved at the Arnold in Columbus was unreal.
