Mark Henry Discusses Injuries, Still Being Relevant in Wrestling & More

– WWE Superstar Mark Henry, who is now suffering from a groin injury, spoke with recently. Here are some highlights:

Q. Does there come a point during your career where you’re like, “Am I ever gonna get to this? Am I ever gonna get that chance?”

I’ve had my opportunities. Injuries are something that always seem to get in the way. I’ve gone almost a three- or four-year stretch, thank God, without an injury.

Q. You competed in the Olympics as a weightlifter. Next year is going to be the 20th anniversary of that ’92 Olympics. Does it seem like it went by in a blink? Or does it seem like it has been a long time?

It seems like it’s been a long time to me and I would rather it feel that way. I’ve done a lot in my life. I’ve enjoyed the journey. I’ve had a chance to reflect and look back. But more than anything, the fact that I’m able to still be relevant and the world of sports and entertainment still know who Mark Henry is, it means a lot to me.

Q. When you carry around a title, do you feel like you have to be more of an ambassador?

I’ve been that. I’ve never been a drug abuser. I’ve never been somebody that was abusive outside of professional entertainment. I’ve always done things necessary to grant and warrant carrying the gold.

    Goodthing they didn’t bring up Mae Young and the hand in this interview. I am glad Henry is a maineventer now. I really thought the hand with Mae Young was going to hold is career back forever.

  • Henry will always have my respect he’s not the best but he’s done what is asked of him whether its being a goofy face or a monster heel he’s always done his job and he’s always done it well

    @Tomb well said my friend

    Reading your post is totally pointless. Only time we hear from you is negative comments when someone is injured. Hell your comments are more boring than listening to Michael Cole.

    Hope its long term, watching Mark Henry attempt to wrestle is even more boring than his pointless promos.

    Why dont they just leave Mark Henry and Big Show and Kane as tweeners !! Just make them into big monsters that destroy anyone in their way face or heel!

  • Adam

    Hope Mark Henry gets back to full health soon, he has done well in his role as a monster heel, some rumours he going turn face again, but keep him heel as its when Henry is at his best.
