Make way for Sexual Chocolate! The world's strongest man, Mark Henry, is the latest inductee in the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame.
Mark Henry has had a storied career, entering the WWE in 1996 after competing in the Olympics. His first match in the WWE, he defeated fellow Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler. Next he went on to make waves as a member of The Nation of Domination (alongside Farooq and The Rock). Later on, he gained his reputation as "Sexual Chocolate," romancing divas such as the late Mae Young (remember the storyline when he got her pregnant? Classic! Who can forget that birth scene, eh?).
Later on, he turned heel and entered many wrestlers into the "Hall of Pain." He destroyed everything in his path, defeating Rey Mysterio, The Undertaker, and Kurt Angle, to name a few. After conquering WWE, he turned his attention to ECW, where he won the championship in his first match.
When he returned to Smackdown, he continued his dominance. His dominance, combined with the World's Strongest Slam, gained him more important wins.
The last time we saw Mark Henry was during WrestleMania 33. These days, he has been mentoring some of today's hottest superstars, such as: Baron Corbin, Braun Strowman, and Apollo Crews. He has also been working behind the scenes as a producer for the WWE.
Mark Henry joins The Dudley Boyz, Ivory, Jeff Jarrett, Hillbilly Jim, Kid Rock, and Warrior Award winner Jarrious "JJ" Robertson in this year's class of 2018 WWE Hall of Fame.
The ceremony will take place on Friday, April 6 during WrestleMania week!
Congrats to Mark Henry!! Well deserved (by the way, I was having a pretty bad day until I heard this news. This totally made my day! LOL)!
