In the January 2012 edition of WWE Magazine, Mark Henry was interviewed and was asked if he was ever at a point of considering quitting the company that put the World Championship on him this year.
“Well, I’m older in the business, and my children miss their dad. Not to mention the aches and pains are just making it harder to get through everything. But, right now, I’m feeling fresh and things are going well. I’m going to hang around as long as I can,” the 40-year-old told the magazine at the TLC pay-per-view before he lost the title to Big Show and, ultimately, Daniel Bryan.
