On the latest episode, three WWE veterans and guaranteed Hall of Famers sat down to discuss their long-running careers in the squared circle.

Mark Henry, Big Show, and Kane got together to discuss all things WWE, and some interesting stories were told.

Between them, they have decades of experience with WWF/WWE, and have won plenty of championships throughout, but with their careers all slowly coming to an end, it was a time to reflect and look back on their illustrious careers.

During the episode, Henry was talking about embarrassing moments he has endured during his career, and because of how long his career has been, he's certainly undergone a fair few.

Funnily enough, however, the whole storyline with Mae Young wasn't his most embarrassing. We all know that storyline so there is no need to go into it.

Henry revealed how going to the wrong airport for a show was his most embarrassing moment. In fact, he labelled it as the worst thing to ever happen to him during his career.

Talking about the incident, Henry revealed: "They said, 'hey, we're in Springfield' and I was like, 'okay, well, I'm close.' I just book my ticket, so I go to Springfield, Illinois. The show wasn't in Springfield, Illinois.

"So I'm calling D'Lo [Brown], 'where are you at, man? I'm at the rental car place.' And he says, 'I'm in a rent-a-car place! Where are you?' I'm starting to look around and this is no cell phones. This is payphone. I'm looking around and I said, 'man, quit playing. Like, we've got to hurry up and go.'

"He's like, 'what gate are you at?' 'There's only one gate.' It was a small airport. 'You're in Springfield, Mass.?' I said, 'Springfield what?' And he was like, 'Mark, we're in Springfield, Massachusetts.' And I went, 'I'm not.'"

Of course, a simple mistake to make for anyone, but Henry to this day hasn't forgotten the saga, and insisted that it was the worst thing to ever happen to him.

"I was, like, panicking. I can't breathe. I think that was my first panic attack in my life." Henry recalled.

"I was ready to jump off a bridge. I was like, 'oh my God, I'm so sorry I missed the show.' I got fined $1,500 and that was the worst thing that ever happened to me in wrestling."
