Top WWE Star Leaning Towards Retirement After New Injury Concerns, Backstage Reaction To John Cena's "Loser" Gimmick On Last Night's Raw Supershow Including How it Involved The News Of His Divorce, Lack Of Unity Amongst The WWE Creative Team Exposed With Illogical Booking

- With news breaking last night via Mark Henry's official Twitter account that he's undergoing surgery today, I'm told Henry is leaning towards retirement. Going into the surgery, it's believed Henry doesn't feel at his size and age he is going to make a full recovery and doesn't want to return only to do permanent damage to his body. Henry has talked retirement for quite some time with his contract believed to be coming up before the end of the year.

- John Cena's over-the-top "goofy" and "annoying" role he played last night in the segment with John Laurinaitis was supposed to be a rib on smarter "smark" fans due to reports surfacing that he was devastated from his divorce. While the "LOSER" lines went over OK with the live crowd, the feeling backstage was it was a step backwards.

- I heard some of the producers were baffled at the logic on last night's Raw Supershow with Big Show being "fired" for mocking John Laurinaitis' voice only for John Cena to do it in a ten minute promo with no repercussions. There continues to be a divide about story lines not booked in unity with segments being scripted and then expected just to make sense.

    That's a tough break for Mark Henry. He finally makes it to the top of the card only to have to hang it up due to injury. It must be hard for guys who don't break through until late in their careers and only have a short run at the top before getting hurt and having to retire. Kind of like DDP.

      Look at the bright side. Mark Henry was a World Champion less than a year ago and if he retires, he went out as a main eventer instead of the mid-carder who couldn't get "The Big One."

        Very true. At least now he can retire reminding us all that it took 15 YEARS to reach the top. And in those 15 years, he went from Mizark to Sexual Chocolate to the World's Strongest Man to Mr. Hall of Pain to…15 YEARS!!! Just had to sneak one more in.

    I loved watching Cena do this. I had a great laugh. It was refreshing and hilarious .

    He reminded me of Ace Ventura…he was very Jim Carey like doing that

    The Big Show segment was stupid. Why wouldn't HHH come down during the segment and confront Johnny Ace? Why wouldn't Show just walk out and take it up with the board of directors and HHH? Dumb.

    Is Mark Henry a top WWE superstar? Really? You can put as many World Heavyweight Championships on him as you want, but he is not. He's the guy that has been sent down to OVW three times in his career to relearn the basics.
