Mark Henry Says He Lied About Daniel Bryan’s Size To Get Him Hired By WWE


During a recent appearance on BT Sport’s “The Run-In” podcast, Mark Henry commented on lying about Daniel Bryan’s size to get him hired by WWE, and more. You can check out some highlights and a video of the interview below:

On helping get Daniel Bryan hired by WWE: “I had to lie to everybody’s face to get Daniel Bryan looked at. They wanted guys who were big and huge. And I said ‘this guy is like 6’1, 200 lbs. He can get it done. Then he got there and they were like ‘that guy’s not 6’1!’ And I said that he must’ve had lifts in his shoes.”

On knowing Brian’s size wouldn’t be a factor: “I knew he was really good. Sometimes when you’re really good it don’t matter what your size is. And he was one of those guys that I just knew. I was like ‘man this guy is a really really excellent wrestler, excellent psychologist.’ He was already wrestling. They didn’t have to show him how to do anything, they didn’t have to wait a long time. And he was able to get it done.”
