The “World’s Strongest Man” is officially set to retire from wrestling as per Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s latest edition.
Dave Meltzer believes that the veteran long career with the company has come to an end.
Mark Henry made his debut with the WWE in 1996 and managed to win the ECW Championship and the World Heavyweight Championship.
Henry came close to capturing the WWE Championship from John Cena beginning with a “fake-retirement” speech that was well acclaimed.
Henry’s feud with Randy Orton for the World Heavyweight Championship was well received as well. Henry’s other memorable moments include the breaking of the ring from a superplex alongside Big Show.

The 380-pound superstar was last seen in the WWE ring as a Andre the Giant battle royal participant and going one on one with “The Monster Among Men” Brawn Strowman in an episode of RAW. The star was also a participant at the 2017 annual Royal Rumble match.
It is unlikely that Henry will cut all ties with the company after two decades, the heavyweight will most likely undertake a backstage role with the company.
Henry will be known as one of the most dominant forces in the history of the company and the sickening thud of the World’s Strongest Slam will always be remembered by the WWE Universe.
Hope that the WWE veteran finds success in all of his future endeavours.
