- As we’ve noted, Mark Henry and Ryback competed in a weight-lifting competition at last night’s SmackDown tapings to hype their WrestleMania 29 match.
WWE’s website has spoiled the segment and announced that Henry and Ryback broke the NFL record for 225-pound bench press with 53 repetitions each. The previous record of 51 reps was set by Justin Ernest at the 1999 NFL Combine.
WWE also revealed that before Ryback could break the new record with 54 reps, Henry attacked him and pushed the bar down on his neck.
