    Took me a minute to realize that when they say Sting, they meant Gordon Sumner and not Steve Borden.

    I’d bet Mark Henry is gonna pay that young man a personal visit to congratulate him…cause that’s what he does.

    805 lb squat, 500 lb bench, and a 705 lb deadlift for a combined total of 2010 lbs!! OH MY WORD… THAT IS UN-FREAKIN-BELIEVABLE… Not to mention the guy who did this is ONLY 18 or 19 years old. That’s almost disturbing. If he can move along with that strength, he’s about to make a heck of a lot of money as a top-3 NFL Draft Pick here in about 2 or 3 years.

    That so called “newspaper” could’ve at least gotten Henry’s moniker correct. Nice research by the wanna-be writer. “The Strongest Man Who Ever Lived”? Close, but no cigar…

    You know WWE is already “scouting” this kid. McMahon and HHH are probably salivating over this new breed of beast. Only time will tell.
