Time and time again, it’s been proven that retirement in professional wrestling is a fleeting thing. This has mainly been the case with Terry Funk, who first retired in 1997 yet had his latest match in 2018. However, today isn’t about Terry Funk, it’s about another WWE Hall Of Famer from Texas, this one being the owner of the Hall Of Pain. Mark Henry has been out of the ring since the Greatest Royal Rumble in 2018, and seemingly was fine with this.
Henry is the co-host of the Busted Open podcast on Sirius XM, and often comments on the state of wrestling in companies like AEW & WWE. However, one man is luring him away from the microphone and back into the ring, and that is the seemingly unstoppable NXT UK Champion, WALTER.
Mark Henry Wants To Face WALTER, And Thinks He Should Be WWE Champion
While speaking with BTSport alongside Trent Seven ahead of Wrestlemania 37 and NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver, Mark Henry would take focus on WALTER, who has a busy week ahead. “I feel like WALTER is the cream of the crop, I think WALTER should be a World Champion within the next two or three years. It’s all up to him, if he stays healthy and wants to get better? He will be world champion.”
Seven would then ask if facing WALTER for the NXT UK Champion would get him out of retirement and Henry simply replied “I want one more match before I’m done, and WALTER is one of those guys. He needs to be put in the Hall of Pain.”
This is as simple as it would get, just two heavyweights slamming into each other. Make it about eight or nine minutes, have WALTER kick out of the Worlds Strongest Slam and put Henry down in epic fashion.
WALTER Has Two Upcoming Title Defenses As NXT UK Champion
While neither match involves Mark Henry, WALTER has a big week ahead of him. He will face Tommaso Ciampa tomorrow night at NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver, and then has another defense against Rampage Brown set to air the next day on NXT UK. Both matches are against elite level opponents, and could result in his record setting 733 day reign ending.
