• Attitude Era Veteran Will Never Wrestle Again
In 2021, after joining AEW, Attitude Era Veteran Mark Henry revealed that he has dropped 80 lbs to get in shape and is looking to end his in-ring career with a match in All Elite Wrestling.
He confirmed in multiple interviews that he will wrestle in Tony Khan’s promotion:
“Well, it’s definitely gonna happen in AEW. It’s not gonna be anytime soon I think. I want to be a 100%. I’m still nursing injuries from 4 years ago. Like, wrestling business is a tough business, it’s not meant for everybody.”
However, that isn’t the case anymore.
During an interview with WJAR, Henry was asked about a return to the ring in AEW and the former World Heavyweight Champion said he’s retired from in-ring competition:
“No, no. Don’t try to wish pain on me! If anybody hits me, I’m calling the police.”
Henry works a Coach in AEW and also has an interviewer role on Rampage.
Henry last match took place in WWE in 2018, when he competed in the Greatest Royal Rumble match.
