Ex-WWE star Mark Henry willing to un-retire to face The Rock
“I’m 2-0 against The Rock,” Henry said of his WWE record against The Rock. “I think I should give him the opportunity to get one, to get a ‘chip against me. I think if I was to come out of retirement and wrestle somebody, I would say, “Hey man. You wrestling again, huh? You know you never beat me. Don’t that bother you a little bit? You should wanna get that ‘chip…” and see what he says. He would say, ‘Your ass is going down this time! You might as well go on and look up at the lights!’ I would have to look at the lights.”
It has been quite a while since Henry has had a professional wrestling match. His last match was at WrestleMania 33 in April 2017, during which he competed in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Although he’ll be turning 50 years old next year, he has remained in tremendous shape — making a WWE comeback against The Rock likely.
Before his wrestling career, Henry was a successful powerlifter and a two-time Olympian. He joined the WWE in 1996 and quickly took the league by dominance.
The 49-year-old accomplished a lot in his professional wrestling career–becoming a one-time WWF European Champion and a two-time world champion. He retired in 2017 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2018.
