Mark Henry's WWE contract is coming up soon and the company is trying to get him to sign an extension. So far, he's turned them down and continues to claim he might be hanging it up soon. This has been something Henry has gone back and forth on over the years and with injury concerns, has made the teases very public recently.
One observer close to Henry tells us he has plans to return this year and hopes for a meaningful match at Wrestlemania XXIX but may opt to retire after the pay-per-view. Due to the aforementioned wavering, WWE is not taking him too seriously.
