What would you do if you were challenged to step in the ring to take an intense body slam (dubbed the “Splash”) from Mark Henry – a 6’4” tall, 412 lb. WWE Superstar also known to fans as the "world's strongest man" – in less than 24 hours? My first thought would be to runaway, but WWE fan Brandon Hendrix was bold enough to accept the challenge and I was lucky enough to watch it all unfold!
The Doritos brand and WWE asked bold fan Hendrix, who was attending the WWE Live event in Portland, Ore., on Friday, Aug. 16, to drop everything and fly to Los Angeles to go face-to-face with Mark Henry at WWE SummerSlam. Brandon had no idea this was coming, and it was literally a ‘now or never’ decision. After he accepted, he was flown to the event, outfitted with a costume, trained by a professional coach and prepped before stepping into the ring with Mark Henry -- all in under 24 hours!
Check out the action as it unfolded in the pictures below:
