Mark Henry wants to face former NXT Champion before he retires

Published Add your comment

Mark Henry won the title of The World's Strongest Man back in 2002 and has had an incredible WWE career off the back of this for the past decade. 

Now it seems Henry's wrestling career is winding down and he is beginning to look towards retirement and who he would enjoy having one final feud with.

It seems that Mark Henry would like to have a final match with former NXT Champion Neville, or former Intercontinental Champion Cesaro, who themselves have been underutilised in WWE over the past few months.

The former World Champion was drafted over to the Raw brand during the WWE Draft in July, but he has hardly featured in the past few months. Although he was a part of an episode of Raw back in August when he was given a United States Championship match against Rusev. 

Rusev destroyed Henry and it seems that the 400-pound superstar was only used to make The Bulgarian Brute look strong heading into his match with Roman Reigns. 

Henry was recently interviewed by Esquire Middle East and he talked about which younger talent he would love to work with.

“Neville. I love his skill set. I want him to do better in the company. I also love working with Cesaro. I think he is under-utilized on the roster, but I don’t make the decisions! I remember when we wrestled in Qatar, he was even able to get me in the Big Swing. I didn’t think he was gonna be able to lift me, but he did.”

Sadly when a new generation comes through any company it usually means that it's time for the older stars to move out of the way. 

The likes of The Big Show, Kane and Mark Henry have been appearing on WWE TV less and less over the past few years and whilst the were drafted in the brand split, none of them have been used effectively since. 

There are many talents like Cesaro, Neville and Sami Zayn who are still being underutilised on the main roster, all these superstars have the talent and they are not being used, whilst the three veterans still have the ability within them, but it seems WWE can't find a place for them anymore.
