• Mark Henry Almost Knocked Out WWF Hall Of Famer For Kissing Him
During a recent edition of The Rosser Rewind, former WWE wrestler Darren Young recalled how Mark Henry almost knocked out WWF Hall Of Famer Pat Patterson at a WrestleMania after-party.
Below is what Young said:
“One thing about Mark Henry is, he doesn’t like to, don’t come up to Mark Henry and like pat him on the back because he says, ‘Don’t put your hands on me, I’m not your pet.’ He feels like he’s a special attraction, being pet like a dog.
I would always see fans at the airport, and you know surrounding him, they are harmless you know, I always get tickled, I would take out my phone and record just for my personal use and my own laughter.
I would always see it and I would be telling to myself, don’t do it, don’t do it, and then they would come up behind Mark Henry, pat him on the back or grab him on the back and he’d say, ‘Hey man, get your damn hands off me, I ain’t your damn pet’, and I would just crack up laughing .
I remember one time, at a WrestleMania after-party. Pat Patterson, Mark Henry and I with his family were all sitting at this table at the after-party and Pat Patterson came up behind Mark Henry and then kissed him on the cheek and Mark turned around and he swung.
Almost hit Pat Patterson in the face, and Mark said, ‘Pat, you are lucky it’s you.’ (laughs). If it wasn’t for Pat, whoever kissed him would have been KOed!”
