Mark Henry To Be Inducted Into The 2018 WWE Hall of Fame

Just because it's not a surprise, doesn't mean it's not cool: Mark Henry is going to the WWE Hall of Fame.

He will join the likes of Goldberg, The Dudley Boyz, Ivory Jeff Jarrett, Hillbilly Jim, Kid Rock and Jarrius "JJ" Robertson as other inductees this year. He started setting records while still in high school, and ultimately became a two-time Olympian, a three-time Pan American medalist and three-time U.S. Senior National Weightlifting champion. His unbelievable power caught the eye of WWE officials, who signed him in 1996.

Soon after, he made his ring debut, where he went head to head with Jerry "The King" Lawler and triumphed in the ring.

Once the Attitude Era was over, Henry was sent to developmental to improve his in-ring abilities. Henry carved a path of destruction through Superstars like The Undertaker, Kurt Angle and Rey Mysterio before making his way to ECW and capturing the brand's top championship in his first match, defeating Kane and Big Show in the process.

The person who is inducting Henry to the Hall of Fame has yet to be named.

The nickname "World's Strongest Man" has stuck with Henry throughout his career, and those credentials were bolstered when, in the midst of a stretch in WWE's developmental territory OVW in 2002, Henry won the Arnold Strongman Classic.

He has since transitioned into a role coaching and mentoring wrestlers such as Braun Strowman, Baron Corbin, Apollo Crews and Bianca Belair for life inside the WWE.
