WWE's Mark Henry Conquers the Inch Dumbbell

Mark Henry wowed the crowd at the Oldetime Barbell & Strongman Association banquet tonight when he cleaned and pressed a replica of the famous Thomas Inch Dumbbell.

The Inch dumbbell is known as being nearly unliftable due to a combination of its weight and the dimensions of its handle, and most strong men would be happy to merely lift it off the ground. 

As part of the evening's entertainment, Mark Henry cleaned and pressed a replica of the Inch dumbbell, becoming the first man in the world to do so.  Henry's performance appeared to be carefully scripted to generate publicity within the world of the WWE, where Henry is a professional wrestler.
