Somebody’s gonna get some nice moments. With three weeks to go before “Wrestlemania XXXIV”, most of this year’s class of the WWE Hall of Fame have already been announced. There are already eight inductees announced but why not add one more. In this case, it’s quite a big one.

This was a big part of why he’s going in.

Randy Orton vs. Mark Henry - World Heavyweight Championship Match: Night of Champions 2011

As reported by, a new Wrestlemania magazine shows Mark Henry as part of this year’s Hall of Fame class. While not confirmed, there is a good chance that this will be announced tomorrow as all other inductees have been announced on Monday. Henry has been in WWE since 1996 and is a one time World Heavyweight Champion.

Henry recently had to address whether or not he’s retired.

A post shared by Wrestling Inc. (@wrestlinginc) on

Opinion: The more I think about this, the more ok I am with it. Henry has been around for so long and while he was bad for a long stretch of that, he’s had his moments. To have a career built around being a strongman, Henry has turned it into quite a run. I liked the Hall of Pain run very well and it’s cool to see him getting some recognition for sticking around as long as he did.

And then this is just cool.
