Mark Henry to the Hall of Fame

Legendary strongman and former World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year, according to WrestlingInc. The site released an image of the new WWE WrestleMania magazine, where the World’s Strongest Man spoke about his induction.

Henry is a one-time ECW Champion and one-time World Heavyweight Champion, as well as a former European Champion. While he didn’t always have a title around his waist, he feuded with a lot of top names during his time with the company.

Most recently, Henry is known for his Hall of Pain and his false retirement where he turned on John Cena.

Many fans still call back to this night, where Mark Henry had the entire WWE Universe in the palm of his hand. Henry’s mic skills shone through that night, and he caused fans to shed tears along with him. However, it was all a ruse, and the World’s Largest Athlete turned on John Cena, sparking a quick feud between the two.

While he didn’t grab a lot of championships in his time with the company, Henry will go down as one of the greatest big men to ever step foot in a WWE ring.

From all of us here, we wish to congratulate Mr. Henry on his induction. He is a man who truly deserves it.

    Mark Henry: I’m not ready to retire.

    Wow they really are pushing it this year arent they? I mean Dudleyz, Jeff Jarrett & Mark Henry??

    I mean no disrespect to them but like wheres Pillman? Miss Elizabeth? Vader? Davey Boy Smith? Big Daddy? Giant Haystacks?

    I remember being pissed and upset with him pulling that fake out and then a few years later looking back at that being one of the greatest segments ever pulled off. Why he didn’t get the WWE title at least once after that is a travesty but at least he was able to keep Smackdown entertaining during his hall of pain reign as champion. Not to mention being a part of what I believe to be the greatest cash in ever with Edge cashing in on the Undertaker.

    Agreed. Choked they didn’t push Henry to the moon after this seg. Was blown away by his mic skills that night. Pretty sure everybody fell for it

  • Leedraven

    one of the best fake outs ever.
