5 famous WWE plot twists we didn't see coming
#4 Mark Henry's fake retirement
On a 2013 June episode of RAW, Mark Henry came out wearing a Salmon coloured blazer, with his boots in hand. The world's strongest man began talking about his career, and was in tears throughout the promo that hinted his retirement.
The then WWE Champion, John Cena, who was at ringside the whole time, gave Henry his WWE Championship. The entire crowd was chanting for Henry, who was a veteran in the company at this time.
After a few seconds, Henry gave the championship back to Cena and hugged him. This hug was the precursor to one of the best twists in WWE of all time. Henry lifted Cena and delivered a World's Strongest Slam.
In a career spanning over 17 years in WWE till then, Mark Henry only came close to the main event scene only a few times. This segment was followed by a WWE title match between the two at Money in the Bank 2013, giving Henry a great moment before subsiding to the mid-card.
