WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry joined AEW on May 30, 2021, at the Double Or Nothing pay-per-view. It was announced that the World's Strongest Man would be joining the commentary team for the company's upcoming show, AEW Rampage. Rampage will premiere on August 13, 2021, at 10 pm ET and will be a weekly show.

Mark Henry appeared on the Battleground Podcast to touch upon a number of topics.

The first question he answered was regarding his return to the squared circle. The host of the show asked if he was getting it ready for his final match and if Henry's fans could see it happen on AEW.

The WWE Hall Of Famer said that his in-ring return will definitely happen on AEW. However, Henry said that it won't happen anytime soon as he is still nursing a few injuries.

"Well, it's definitely gonna happen in AEW. It's not gonna be anytime soon I think. I want to be a 100%. I'm still nursing injuries from four years ago. Like wrestling business is a tough business, it's not meant for everybody. Um, being in my home state it'll be cool to be able to do that but just not this current time. I'm here in Austin, can't wait to get to Garland, three-hour drive," Henry said.

It's interesting to note that Mark Henry said he will definitely make his return to the squared circle. A few months ago, Henry shared a picture documenting his body transformation which sent his fans into a frenzy.
