E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness Recap w/ Mark Henry – Making Tommy Dreamer Crap His Pants, Incredible Displays of Strength, Possible Retirement Match, More!
Christian thinks Henry’s main event “Hall of Pain” run was his best work. Henry agrees, noting that this was the first time in his career that he was given creative liberties to cut promos with the likes of John Cena. Before going through the curtain McMahon would tell him not to hurt anyone, other than that it was mostly on him creatively and he had a lot of fun.
Dreamer asks Henry why he was never given one big build for a retirement match. Henry informs that he was working hurt for about three years. There was no heat with the company and it wasn’t McMahon’s call to quickly retire him. He made the decision to not wrestle anymore and that actually caught McMahon off guard. His back, knee and the majority of his body was in pain.
Thankfully, he just had his knee fixed and this is the best his body has felt in years. He’ll never say never when it comes to an actual retirement match, adding that he feels like he owes the fans one final match. However, he’s not the world’s strongest man anymore, and if he comes back it’ll be a different Mark Henry.
That sums up today’s episode of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya next week for another recap!
