He joins Goldberg, The Dudley Boyz, Ivory, Jeff Jarrett, Hillbilly Jim, Kid Rock and Warrior Award target Jarrius “JJ” Robertson as those being respected during a 2018 Induction Ceremony on Friday, Apr 6, during WrestleMania 34 Week in New Orleans.

Henry’s tour in veteran sports began in a universe of powerlifting. After apropos a expert in a weight room as a high-schooler, Henry pennyless out during a 1992 Summer Olympics. One year later, he won gold, china and bronze medals during a 1993 Pan-American Games. His unimaginable energy held a eye of WWE officials, who sealed him to turn a Superstar in 1996. Shortly after competing in a 1996 Summer Olympics, Henry done his in-ring entrance during In Your House: Mind Games, defeating associate WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler.

Henry excelled inside a squared round as a member of The Nation of Domination alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and also became a scandalous ladies’ male famous as “Sexual Chocolate” during WWE’s over-the-top Attitude Era. While with WWE, Henry would incursion into strongman foe and find good success, winning a 2002 Arnold Strongman Classic. Back in WWE, The World’s Strongest Man would use a energy that won him that contest, pulling off implausible feats of strength for his associate Superstars and a WWE Universe.

Soon, though, Henry would learn a meant strain like no other and unleash his fury on a WWE roster.
