WWE Superstar Mark Henry wants to retire in dramatic fashion against Daniel Bryan, according to a recent interview.
He said on the podcast: "I think that I want to go out in dramatic fashion. Win, lose or draw I want to have a retirement match and a lot of guys have done it throughout history and I’m going to go back and kind of see what style of match. Maybe even let the WWE Universe decide what my match will be. I’m not sure yet but it’s imminent. It’s coming."

It wasn't that long ago that Henry said he might retire next year, and his home is Texas. Put two and two together, and you could make the claim he is going to retire at WrestleMania 32 next April.
As for a possible opponent, he did say he could let the WWE Universe decide who his final match will be against, but there is one wrestler he has in mind that he would like to face, Daniel Bryan.
He said: "Daniel Bryan is one of my favourite wrestlers. As a talent, as an entertainer, the way our fans love and revere him. There’s never been a match he and I have been in where it was bad. He is one that I would definitely like to consider.
"He’s been gone a long time dealing with injuries and I know how that feels and I know that somebody like Daniel with his credentials would be really really cool."
That would be an amazing match to see. The WWE could set it up as a retirement match for either competitor. Obviously Bryan is such a pull with the WWE Universe it won't be him retiring, but the tension of the possibility would leave many fans on the edge of their seats. Having it at next year's WrestleMania would be the icing on the cake.
