The 2018 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony is getting sexual. WWE has announced that Mark Henry, who wrestled under the monikers Sexual Chocolate and the World's Strongest Man, is the latest inductee–joining a jam-packed roster of talent being honored this year.
The news was first reported by USA Today, which spoke to Henry about the honor. According to the former ECW and World Heavyweight Champion, finding out he was becoming a Hall of Famer was emotional. "A couple of tears fell, and you felt like, instantly, all of the pain and torment that you put your body through, the sacrifices that you made–they were worth it," the former Olympic weightlifter remembers. "It paid it all off."
Though Henry retired from active competition after the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royale in 2017, WWE says he is still being utilized as a talent scout and mentor for the company, assisting talent like Braun Strowman, Baron Corbin, and Apollo Crews. He joins a Hall of Fame class that includes Goldberg, The Dudley Boyz, Ivory, Jeff Jarrett, Hillbilly Jim, and celebrity inductee Kid Rock.
At this point, there is no word on who will induct Henry. Sadly, chances are the honor will not go to the giant hand he fathered with fellow Hall of Famer Mae Young. If you're too young to understand that reference, thankfully the internet remembers everything.
The 2018 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony will take place Friday, April 6, and air on the WWE Network. Two days later, WWE will present Wrestlemania 34.
