Mark Henry is quoted in the January 2012 issue of WWE Magazine where he said he considered retiring from wrestling before his run as a top star on Smackdown. He cited wanting to spend more time with his kids and the various aches and pains from so many years in the business.
While a lot of people will blow this quote up, Henry had more interesting comments to The West Australian in May 2011. The original article featuring the quote is no longer online, however, it was here that Mark Henry said he would retire after wrestling another year-and-a-half.
Henry, 41, is currently injured but worked this week's TVs.
