Mark Henry Explains Longevity

Mark Henry is featured in a full page Q&A in the July 2013 issue of WWE Magazine. In it, he discusses the backstage atmosphere in WWE. Below is an excerpt:

WWE Magazine - During the past two decades, what's one thing that hasn't changed about Mark Henry?

Mark Henry - That I've always been helpful. I've helped out a lot of people. The Rock, John Cena, Big Show, Randy Orton, the NXT guys, The Prime Time Players, Zack Ryder - the list goes on. I take a lot of pride in giving people advice and helping them out backstage. I've had a lot of help myself, so I figure it's only right to give it back. Here's another thing that hasn't changed - my car. I still have the Hummer I won at the Arnold Classic! I drive it every time that I'm home. I got it in 2002, and it only has 89,000 miles on it. Of course, I'm on the road a lot so I don't drive it too often, but when I'm home, it's still my car. I've taken really good care of it over the years, so it's in great shape. That's how I am with anything. Once I'm in, I'm in.

WWE Magazine - We imagine that that kind of backstage help is valuable in the WWE locker room, where the wrong move can put you in some hot water.

Mark Henry - You have to be respectful of the people you work with and, in some cases, the people you work against. If you have differences, you get behind closed doors and say, "Hey man, we've got a problem. We need to work it out." At times I've been kind of a legal presence, representing both side: the impartial party making sure the action stays where it belongs - in the ring, not in the back.

The July 2013 issue of WWE Magazine is available on newsstands everywhere and features John Cena on the cover.
