It looks like Mark Henry’s career as an active WWE Superstar has come to an end. Henry wrestled his last match at the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal last year, and only competed in three total matches in the year 2017. Per a report from Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, he has confirmed that the man formerly known as “Sexual Chocolate” is pretty much retired as an active WWE Superstar.
Henry is still under contract with WWE but is being advertised for a Northeast Wrestling event on March 2nd in Waterbury, Connecticut. The event will also feature Rey Mysterio, Emma, Flip Gordon, and Matt Riddle. It is a charity event and Henry will not be wrestling at the show, and is not looking for anymore bookings as of this writing.
The former standout powerlifter signed with WWE back in 1996 and is a former ECW Champion, WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and European Champion. He is also one of The Undertaker’s victims at WrestleMania, as “The Deadman” defeated Henry to extend his then-undefeated record at “The Show Of Shows” to 14-0 back in 2006. After over 20 years with the WWE Henry has established himself as one of the most respected veterans within the company.
