It looks like the news about the next entrant into the WWE Hall Of Fame got out a little bit earlier than expected. The latest WrestleMania Magazine features an interview with Mark Henry with the headline, “From the Hall of Pain to the Hall Of Fame.” The subheadline reads, “Mark Henry on joining the legion of WWe greats. His favorite era of his career and whether he’s got enough in the tank for ‘one more match.'”
Henry quietly retired last year and recently signed an ambassador deal with the company but he has not closed the door on occasional in-ring appearances. The Hall Of Fame induction is a nice way to wrap up his full-time career.
The 46-year old signed with WWE in 1996 and was billed as “The World’s Strongest Man” after placing 1st in the U.S. National Weightlifting Championships. In WWE, he stood out as part of the Nation Of Domination faction and he would go on to become World Heavyweight Champion. He also had a run as ECW Champion when WWE tried to resurrect the brand in 2006 and he’s a former WWE European Champion.
Congratulations to Henry on the induction.
