When Mark Henry first arrived at the WWF in 1996, he was ecstatic. However, The World's Strongest Man made a lot of mistakes before he was accepted as a legitimate Professional Wrestler inside WWE's inner circles.

Even some of Henry's best peers criticized him when he first arrived in the company. JBL went on to mention that there was a point in Henry's career, right at the very beginning, where he was trapped between two professions.

His love for Professional Wrestling clashed with his career as a Strongman/Weightlifter and in the WWF, people only respected what you had done in the past, but it was very well known that one had to start from the beginning when it came to the WWF in 1996.

Therefore, Mark Henry's career was already off to a rocky start. He wasn't fully aware of what it really took to become a Professional Wrestler. But eventually, Mark used those criticisms and learned from each and every one of his experiences in the ring.

It was only after joining the Nation of Domination where he really felt that he belonged in the WWF/WWE.
