Mark Henry Says He Will Be Retiring After WrestleMania 32

Mark Henry’s 20+ run with WWE is winding down, with the former World Heavyweight Champion looking to retire shortly after WrestleMania 32. Henry says he was ready to retire back in 2013, but somehow Vince McMahon talked him into signing one last contract extension. Henry told Philly.com:

“I don’t know how I let Vince [McMahon] convince me into signing another contract back in 2013. He did a bit of magic. He’s got that magic where you just go in the office and he’ll talk you into it. I won’t be signing any more contracts …

I’m 100 percent sure (this is my final contract). I’m leading toward WrestleMania and I’ll have a little time after that, but that’s going to be it for me.”

Even when he hangs up the boots, Henry says he’d like to work for WWE corporate, perhaps in the marketing department.

“I’m an elder statesman. This is a young guy business and I’m 100 percent for it. I love the marketing process. I love the international marketing. I love the talent development, but those are all things I’ll work with the company on to make sure that our business continues to thrive, but there’s a bunch of other stuff that I plan on doing. …

During another recent interview, Henry said he’d like to wrestle Daniel Bryan for his retirement match, but the results of Daniel Bryan’s next neurologist visit will likely determine whether that’s realistic or not.
