Big Show will induct Mark Henry into the Hall of Fame:
The two titans have engaged in numerous battles over the years, including an epic rivalry over the World Heavyweight Championship in 2011. Outside the ring, the two veterans have become close friends. Their strong bond makes Big Show the perfect man for the task of inducting Henry.
“I’ve spent a lot of time going up and down the road with Mark Henry,” Big Show told WWE.com. “I’ve had battles with him, and I know what kind of a human being and community leader he is. I can’t think of anyone more deserving of the WWE Hall of Fame. It is my honor to induct my friend.”
