Mark Henry has been gone since late last year with an injury. Henry was cleared to return this month, and some thought he might return for the Royal Rumble. While Henry was in attendance at the Rumble, he did not make his return and questions arose when he would make his way back.
Last Friday on "Smackdown," Booker T announced he was looking at former World Champions to determine who would wrestle in the number one contender Elimination Chamber match. Dolph Ziggler said he wasn't interested, and Jack Swagger came back and said he wanted in.
On "Monday Night Raw," former world champions collided. In the match between Daniel Bryan and Rey Mysterio, Bryan won the match by submission. However Mark Henry's music began and he made his way to the ring. Bryan charged him, but Henry launched him into the barricade.
Henry then went in the ring and beat up Mysterio. Sin Cara tried to come down, but Henry took him out too. It looks like this is Henry's way of showing that he wants in the Elimination Chamber match too.
Henry's contract expires at Wrestlemania 29, but from recent interviews with the big man it sounds like he plans on sticking around.
