WrestleMania weekend is less than three weeks away - and that means a new class of superstars will soon be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

The ceremony takes place on Saturday night before WrestleMania and this year there's a lot of legendary talent being inducted. 

Already confirmed are the retired Goldberg, Ivory, The Dudley Boyz, Hillbilly Jim and "Double J" Jeff Jarrett. 

Along with them, Mark Henry will also be entering the Hall of Fame, but he's a little unique to the rest of his class. 

"The World's Strongest Man" is still under contract with WWE. However, he hasn't wrestled on TV since February 2017. 

Instead, he's been more involved backstage as a producer, but still hasn't technically confirmed his retirement yet.

He's already a legendary inductee into the Hall of Fame and it's likely that he'll now officially retire from in-ring performances. 

And what a career he had. Henry joined WWF in 1996 and became a dominant force in the company.

Over the course of his 21-year career, he became a one-time WWF European Champion and a two-time world champion.

Henry held the ECW Championship in 2008 and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship in 2011. He also paved the way for a certain 'look' in professional wrestling - as he wasn't an average looking competitor. 

Henry was billed at a weight of 360 lbs and his weightlifting background made him one of the strongest superstars WWE had ever seen.

Still, in 2018, his style is going strong - and one current superstar has sent an emotional message of thanks to Henry. 

Braun Strowman tweeted that he will forever be thankful and indebted to Henry for "putting his name on the line" to get Strowman "a look". 

Interestingly, it was "The Monster Among Men" who Henry faced in his last ever singles match on Raw, back in February 2017. 

The match came as Strowman was pursuing the Universal Championship and a win against Henry no doubt further cemented Strowman's position as one of the most dominant men on the roster.

And that match could now be seen as the end of an era - as one strong man defeated another, Henry passed the torch on to Strowman.
