Mark Henry signs with AEW

New, 154 comments

Just before the main event Stadium Stampede match at tonight’s (Sun., May 30, 2021) Double or Nothing event at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida, Tony Schiavone hit the ring to remind us that AEW will be bringing a second show to TNT called Rampage starting on Aug. 13.

He had a special surprise for us, though. That show will feature a big star as an analyst and said analyst will also be a coach at AEW.

The World’s Strongest Man, Mark Henry.

Henry retired following WrestleMania 33 back in 2017 and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2018. He’s recently spoken openly about his desire to wrestle at least one more match. Of course, that never meant that last match would be with Vince McMahon’s promotion.

We don’t know exactly why he made the jump. AEW is smartly making us wait until Dynamite this coming Friday night for him to speak on the decision.
