WWE’s Rebuilding Phase Is Keeping Mark Henry Off-Screen

According to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer, former World Champion and World’s Strongest Man Mark Henry is available to be used on-screen but WWE is electing not to. The company is currently in a “rebuilding phase,” focusing on many of the fresher faces. This is evidenced by the recent prominence of wrestlers like AJ Styles, Kevin Owens, and Sami Zayn.

This rebuilding has been affecting more than just Henry. Other seasoned veterans such as Kane and Big Show, who have maintained a steady on-screen presence for well more than a decade, are also far less visible these days. Perhaps there’s some truth to all of this “New Era” talk after all.

Henry has made it known that he intends on retiring in the near future. He’s recently been in the public eye thanks to Tweets about his involvement with the Make A Wish Foundation.
