– During a recent interview with Six Feet Under, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry revealed a story of how WWE punished him after he threatened to kill Shawn Michaels and the entire Kliq. According to Henry, he incorrectly blamed Shawn Michaels for a prank that was done on him by Paul Bearer, who hid his crutches. As a result, WWE sent him to Canada as punishment. Below are some highlights (via Fightful):

Mark Henry on getting in trouble for threatening Shawn Michaels: “I got in trouble, and they sent me to Canada, because I threatened to kill Shawn Michaels and the entire Kliq. I meant that s***. I meant it, but I found out later on that it was Paul Bearer who hid my crutches. I blamed it on Shawn. They came up to me, ‘Hey man, they hid your crutches? What happened?’ I was like, ‘You’re too small to be talking s***. I will f***ing kill you and everybody that knows you.'”

On Sid Vicious being present during the confrontation: “Sid was behind Shawn. When I threatened him, Sid was [imitates heavy breathing]. I was like, ‘The f*** you breathing heavy for? I’m not talking to you, but if you want it, you can get it too.’ [Undertaker] knows who I am. When that switch flips, I don’t give a f*** who you are. Ask Vince (McMahon) himself. I told Vince when to take a step back. ‘You’re in my face.’ I don’t give a f*** how much money you have, you better back up. ‘You’re crazy.’ No, I’m not. I’m mad.”

On how no one ever taught him wrestling etiquette: “That’s when I was stupid. You can’t be a in professional industry with no couth. You can’t. They’re going to get rid of you. It happened to me. [Vince] was like, ‘I’d rather pay you your money and get the f*** out of my face.’ So he sent me to Canada. Nobody ever sat me down and taught me wrestling etiquette.”
