With just nine days to go until the 2016 Royal Rumble, the anticipation is building within the WWE Universe.

This time around, in a history-making twist, the WWE Championship is on the line, meaning there are no shortage of Superstars willing to put it all on the line come January 24.

Although, for one WWE Superstar in particular, it doesn't look like motivation was every going to be an issue.

That's after Mark Henry, speaking in an interview with WWE, admitted that January 24th could very well be the last time he is able to compete in the fabled event. 

"This may be my last Royal Rumble match," explained the veteran big man.

"I've done everything there is to do, except for winning a Royal Rumble match. I can't leave it up to anyone else to interpret it, I got to say it, I got to interpret it to the fans. Just for my legacy, I want to win."

Henry, a 20-year veteran of the WWE who has won the Heavyweight title in his time with the company, has hinted over the past few months that retirement could soon be on the horizon.

His comments regarding the upcoming Royal Rumble suggest the end of his WWE career is near.


If this is to be Henry's final year in the WWE, he knows all too well just what winning the Rumble, and, therefore, getting the WrestleMania 32 main event, could help him achieve:

"To be able to end and take my boots off in the middle of the ring at WrestleMania, there's nothing better than that outside of my kids being born."

With Roman Reigns reportedly earmarked for the Rumble victory, Henry's dream finale may be hard to make a reality. Few wrestling fans would begrudge him a good sendoff, however.
