WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry joins the ongoing list of pro wrestlers who plan to donate their brains to CTE research after they pass away.
The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion made the news known during a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio. Other stars who have made their pledge include John Cena, Rob Van Dam, and Jeff Hardy among others.
“I hope that people realize that this is something that is not weird. What would be hard I think would be what you just said: after someone nearly passes away, it is hard to ask their spouse for their brain for science. I am a donor, I hope that I can help somebody live if something tragically happened to me. This is another way that I’ll be able to give back when I’m gone.”
Henry has been with the sports entertainment company since 1996. He was just 24-years of age when he decided to get into the pro wrestling business.
During his time with the company, he held the WWE World Heavyweight Title, ECW Title, and European Title. He has stated in previous interviews that he wants to help all of the up-and-coming male and female talent develop and become successful in the company.
