Mark Henry Undergoing Surgery & Possibly Retiring

Posted by Matt Boone May 15, 2012 11 Comments

Mark Henry revealed on Twitter on Monday night that he will be undergoing surgery today (Tuesday). This explains why he has not been wrestling on television or at live events in recent weeks.

While this isn’t confirmed, word going around is that he’s having surgery for the groin injury that he suffered a while back that led to him dropping the World Heavyweight title and the end of his ‘unstoppable monster’ push in late 2011.

Henry has stated in recent interviews that he plans to retire if he is unable to come back from the injury at 100%. There was talk earlier this year before WrestleMania that Henry felt his career was winding down, so we might have seen the last of the World’s Strongest Man.

      I think if Henry’s concerned about his legacy as a wrestler, he’ll retire now. He’s been World Heavyweight Champion, but he’s slowly sliding back down the roster. Might be better to nip it in the bud now.

        I don’t want to say it’s the end just yet. If he can’t recover from the injury, then yeah. He has one more big push in him.

        The only reason he’s “sliding down” is because if this injury.

          No chance. NOC – World Champion. TLC – loses belt. TLC – ‘Mania, on the downslope after being in a mini losing streak, no Elimination Chamber, and put on the backburner at WrestleMania. Sounds like a slide to me.

            Um….he was wrestling with an injury at all those events that you just mentioned…..soo….ya his “slide” was because of his injury…

              Still, he was fine at ‘Mania.

      Mark Henry was in the midst of the biggest push of his long career when he got sidelined with a career threatening injury .. That sucks a whole lot

      • Wrestlehead

        I agree. I’m certain the reason for his big push was that he was close to retirement anyway though.
