Mark Henry is set to join the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2018!
The new WWE WrestleMania magazine has an interview with Mark, where he is asked “What was it like when you actually received the official word that you were going to be a part of the 2018 Hall of Fame?”
The 46-year-old was a two-time Olympian in 1992 and 1996 and a gold, silver, and bronze medalist at the Pan American Games in 1995.
He first appeared on WWE programming on the 11th March 1996 episode of Monday Night Raw, where he press slammed Jerry Lawler, who was ridiculing Henry while interviewing him in the ring.
After Henry competed in the 1996 Summer Olympics, WWE signed him to a ten-year contract, and was trained by professional wrestler Leo Burke.
He would go on to join the Nation of Domination, feud with the Undertaker and become ECW Champion, and World Heavyweight Champion.
In the June 2016, he was drafted to Raw. His final match was the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 33.
The 2018 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony takes place on Friday 6th April, at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, where Goldberg, The Dudley Boyz, Ivory, Jeff Jarrett, Hillbilly Jim, and Kid Rock are among those being honoured that night.
