Mark Henry Retired? Title Match for Royal Rumble, MMC Charities
Friday, January 12, 2018
Mark Henry has been wrestling for WWE for over twenty years, and he has accomplishments such as a WrestleMania match against The Undertaker and a World Heavyweight Championship run to be proud of. Henry has not competed in a match for several months now. While he is still under contract to WWE, he is being advertised for a non-wrestling appearance at an upcoming Northeast Wrestling charity event on March 2nd in Waterbury, Connecticut. Unsurprisingly, Dave Meltzer noted in this week's
Newsletter that Henry's days in the ring are largely considered to be over from WWE and from Mark Henry's perspective.
Enzo Amore has managed to hold onto the Cruiserweight Championship for a while now, but he's had a few close calls against Cedric Alexander as of late. A sudden bout with the flu prevented him from defending the title on one occasion, and Cedric won another match against Enzo by count out on Raw this past Monday night. It has been confirmed by WWE that Alexander will be receiving another chance to win the title when he takes on Enzo Amore for the Cruiserweight Championship once again at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. The match will air during the Royal Rumble event, which will be taking place on January 28th.
Now that the Mixed Match Challenge teams and brackets have been revealed, the next order of business called for the participants to select a charity of their choice that they wish to compete for. The Mixed Match Challenge sees male and female WWE performers team up in mixed tag team action as they compete for a $100,000 grand prize. In addition to the grand prize, the charity that they have selected will receive $10,000. The show will last approximately 12 weeks, and it will premiere on Facebook watch on January 16th at 10pm ET, right after Smackdown goes off the air. Check out WWE's listing each team's selected charities down below:
