As noted, “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry recently spoke with Nick Hausman for an in-depth interview on the Wrestling Inc. Daily podcast.
During his appearance on the popular podcast, the WWE Hall of Fame legend spoke about a number of pro wrestling related topics, including the joy he takes in watching young, aspiring wrestlers grow and evolve in their own journey in the business.
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this particular topic.
“It is, and I have an eye for talent and I have an eye for what can be done to accentuate things, and when I do my wrestling seminars, I always say the how is the least important, even though it is important to know how to do everything, to make sure that you body slam correctly. Make sure you run the ropes correctly. Make sure that you grab a headlock or you grab a wrist lock. Everything has got to be precise. You got to really want to do it and love it to learn how to do everything, but there’s a lot of places around the world that are teaching how. What I emphasize is when you do things and why do you do things, and as a wrestling fan, that’s the first thing that people say when something happens. ‘Why would he do that? Why would she do that?’ And you have to be able to know that stuff. This talk. When do you do it? When is the right time to pull the rug from beneath somebody? When is the right time to raise their hand? When is the right time for that person to come back from being beat almost lifeless? They get the gears going, and they get the ball rolling downhill and then BOOM, you get the big finish. Those are important important things, and a lot of times in independent wrestling, people are characters of pro wrestlers. They watch the high-level pro wrestlers, and they copy it. They mimic it but without understanding why that happened and when you’re supposed to do it, That’s why I’m helping.”
