Pro wrestling legend and former WWE Superstar Mark Henry shocked the world when he made his debut at the AEW Double Or Nothing pay-per-view. AEW became only the second company ever that Henry has worked in. He also has a unique role in AEW Rampage. It seems Vince McMahon once dumped water on him to wake him up.
On the other hand, Vince McMahon is the Chairman of WWE and oversees everything that goes on in the company, right down to the most minute of details. McMahon is larger than life and is known to do the craziest of things, many of which are true. That includes his legendary midnight workouts.
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Mark Henry recalled a prank Vince McMahon pulled on him, where McMahon dumped water on Henry whenever he found Henry sleeping.
”Everybody knows that I take naps every day, that I sleep. I find a dark place. I have to hide in closets. I’ve climbed under the bleachers. I’ve done everything that you could do. So Vince New this and he’s like ‘where’s Mark? Where’s Mark?’ And so they had everybody out. They had walkie talkies. ‘Anybody got eyes on Henry?’ And they found me and I was sleeping on some mats on the edge of the bleachers.
Vince came out of his office, walked through the arena, everybody’s pointing and then he climbs up in the bleachers, and I’m on the floor, and he has a bottle of water. And he’s going for a little water and [he] pulled back like a little kid. And water hits me and I’m like, ‘What the hell they got the cameras on, man? I’m looking around, and I go back to sleep again. And then [he giggles] like a little kid. And now I’m like, ‘what? Who did that?’ And then everybody in the arena busted out laughing. So this is on video. I know they got it. They gotta release it now.”
Mark Henry also recently revealed how Vince McMahon was there for him when his mother passed away. Despite all the pranks McMahon pulled on Henry, the two have a lot of love and mutual respect for each other and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
