Mark Henry was mingling with the crowd at a restaurant during the popular South by Southwest event in Austin, Texas. Fuse.tv posted the following regarding Mark Henry’s involvement: “Wrestler-Approved Bacon-Themed Restaurants: A friend was eating lunch when WWE wrestler Mark Henry started talking to him and subsequently recommended Bacon, an Austin restaurant where nearly every item has its titular food. Music-related? Not really. But there is no weirder and more appropriately Austin moment than that.”
