Mark Henry is scheduled to return to WWE on next week's episode of Monday Night Raw, as announced on this week's broadcast and covered here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com. Henry has been very sensitive about his status and we're told WWE put it out there that he had heat so workers knew they couldn't just "come and go" as they please.
Henry took offense to the reports, assuring he was injured and that he would return when he was healthy. We're told Henry is suffering from a rib cartilage injury and WWE has been urging him to work through it.
He'll be back next week but we're told his long-term future in the company remains unclear. His contract is coming up later this year and there is a lot of distrust in his relationship with WWE right now.
