Mark Henry is the newest inductee into the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame. This marks the one of the wrestler's biggest accomplishments ever since he started becoming a professional wrestler over 20 years ago. 

As announced on, Mark Henry will be inducted into the 2018 Hall of Fame when the ceremony takes place on April 6th, 2018.

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.

Mark Henry first became a professional wrestler in the WWE back in 1996 after his weightlifting career finished. Due to his size and strength, this caught the eye of many WWE officials such as WWE Owner Vince McMahon. 

His early days in the company he was a part of the popular faction called the 'Nation of Domination'. This group included the likes of The Rock, Farooq, D'Lo Brown and The Godfather. 

Henry was pretty much an admirable mid-card wrestler for most of his career, but he finally got his big break in 2011 by entering the main event scene for the very first time.

He finally became the World Heavyweight Champion and started his awesome 'Hall of Pain' run in the company.

Sadly, injuries cut his title reign short but his impact was already felt by many of the other WWE Superstars in the locker room.

Now it looks like Henry has finished in in-ring career and his place in the Hall of Fame is very deserving.

The person who is inducting Henry to the Hall of Fame has yet to be named. Hopefully whoever inducts him was a part of the Nation of Domination group as that's how he first got famous.
