Along with Neville, names such as: Braun Strowman, Apollo, NXT's Bianca Belair and others have all been discovered and been under the tutelage of Mark Henry. Henry would state to WWE.com that he knew of Braun Strowman's potential as soon as he came across the 6'8 big man.

“It’s hard to steer somebody away from their dream,” Henry said. “His first dream was to be the world’s strongest man. Why wait on somebody else to stumble, so you can get one up on them, when you can just take over and do something completely different and be really, really good at it? It was hard for me to tell him that.”

Also, as noted above, on Mark Henry's talent watch list, was the "EST of NXT", Bianca Belair. Henry would state that Belair's athletic background set her apart, but he knew that she would be special because of her personality and attitude, which shows very well when she is featured on NXT TV.

“She was a very good CrossFitter; was very, very good at track and field. From watching her compete, I knew that she could do this, but she can do it at a high level because of her personality, not because of her talent. A lot of people can turn a flip, but some people do it with flair and demonstrative movements and still get it done. That’s what wrestling requires. To be able to make other people understand without using words is the brilliance of what we do.”

Baron Corbin, Apollo, Bianca Belair and Braun Strowman would all comment on what Mark Henry has done for their respective WWE careers. To check out what Henry has done for these stars and what they have to say about the former WWE European Champion, click the tweet above.
