Michael Jordan Doesn’t Leave Good First Impression On WWE Star
WWE Superstar isn't impressed with Michael Jordan the first time they met.
Have you ever heard the expression, "never meet your heroes?" It will only lead to disappointment if they aren't what you think.
I'm pretty lucky. I've gotten the opportunity to meet some famous people. For the most part, it's been a good experience.
I did get to meet Michael Jordan once. It was at the Chicago Auto Show during his rookie season with the Bulls. He was doing a signing for his sponsor. Chevy. Of course, it was only for a couple of minutes but in that short time he seemed pretty cool.
Apparently, WWE Superstar, Mark Henry, doesn't have a pleasant memory of meeting Michael.
If you're not familiar with Henry. He's known as the "World's Strongest Man." Before he became a professional wrestler, he was an Olympian Powerlifter.
Both the WWE and NBA stars participated in the 1996 Olympics representing the United States. Their paths crossed at the games.
From Brobible, this is how it went according to Mark Henry...
“At the 1996 Olympics, I was friends with Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, David Robinson. I knew guys personally. I went to the hotel with Charles. As we’re in the lobby, Michael walks up. It’s not, ‘Hey guys, how are you doing?’ It was was, ‘Who are you?’ I said, ‘Who the fuck are you?’ And that was the introduction. Charles was like, ‘Ohhhhhh.’”
It all worked out in the end, but could you just imagine the headline, "Jordan Beat Down At Olympic Village."
