Didn't WWE learn from Mark Henry, the peak star of weightlifters-turned-wrestlers? I guess they will see good coming out of this investment... 12 years from now. (And only if Michael Hayes calls this guy the "n-word" too)
And, for the record, I would say Ken Patera was a great weightlifter-turned-wrestler. But, Patera didn't reach the levels of Mark Henry... not a slight to Patera. It's just that Patera reached his peak and didn't then get shoved down people's throats (a.k.a. Henry).
last true body builder I remember in recent history was Chris Masters but he was on the juice and lost a ton of mass when he came off.
Wrestling has seen its fair share of fantastic looking physiques over the years, but generally body builders don't fare to well with the wear and tear of wrestling. American football players make a better transition over.
Hope for his sake they don't put him anywhere near Mark Henry. He doesn't get along ie he gets punked out by other competitive weightlifters. Hasn't WWE done this quite a bit in the recent past, signing a bodybuilder with no wrestling experience ? Has any of them made to tv ?
