WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry made his shocking debut with AEW back in May at their Double Or Nothing Pay-Per-View.
Henry will serve as an analyst as part of the broadcast team for AEW’s Rampage program which is set to premiere on TNT in August. It was previously speculated that an in-ring return would also be part of Mark Henry signing with AEW, which he has now confirmed will happen… just not anytime soon.
Mark Henry was recently a guest on the Battlegrounds Podcast, and he was asked about a potential return to the squared circle now that he has signed with AEW. Henry confirmed that a return to the ring is definitely going to happen, although that won’t be anytime soon. He added that he wants to be 100% when he finally does return, and that he is currently still nursing injuries he sustained four years ago.
“Well, it’s definitely gonna happen in AEW. It’s not gonna be anytime soon I think. I want to be a 100%. I’m still nursing injuries from four years ago. Like wrestling business is a tough business, it’s not meant for everybody. Um, being in my home state it’ll be cool to be able to do that but just not this current time. I’m here in Austin, can’t wait to get to Garland, three-hour drive,”
