Mark Henry Injury: Updates on WWE Star's Hamstring, Potential Return Date
The World's Strongest Man has been sidelined with an injured right hamstring.
Mark Henry suffered a right hamstring injury at a live event in Boston on Saturday, August 31. This occurred as Henry ran in during the last match of the night. Medical imaging will be obtained to determine the severity of the injury. Stay tuned to WWE.com for any further details.
UPDATE: Thursday, Sept. 5
F4WOnline.com (via Wrestlinginc.com) has the latest:
Despite suffering a hamstring injury last weekend, F4WOnline.com reports that Mark Henry has already been cleared to return to action. According to the report, Henry underwent an MRI and was then cleared.
Mark Henry also released a statement via Twitter:
Yeah guess the word is out, I pulled my hamstring last night I got through it all just got to Austin!— TheMarkHenry (@TheMarkHenry) September 1, 2013
If this injury is serious enough to force Henry away from the ring for a significant amount of time, it will be intriguing to see how the WWE handles his absence.
With Night of Champions just two weeks away, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns are going to have to defend their tag team titles against someone. Ever since The Big Show's return just before SummerSlam, it has always looked like it would be Show and Henry to be that team.
But what happens if Henry can't go?
Does another face such as Christian or Dolph Ziggler join ranks with Show to take on The Shield's duo? Or does Show move on to a feud with Triple-H—a match between the two has been rumored according to PWMania—while another team steps in for a shot at the belts?
The Usos, who have put on some electrifying matches with Rollins and Reigns, would probably make the most sense, but there aren't exactly a ton of options.
Then again, perhaps Henry's injury isn't severe, and this is a problem both fans and the WWE won't have to worry about.
Henry is one of the company's biggest stars. Although he fell short a few months ago in securing his first WWE title, he is a former World Heavyweight champion and a classic fan favorite with his strength inside the ring and highly entertaining promos outside of it.
Although the injury doesn't appear to be major at this point, it would be an unfortunate blow for Henry and the company if that changes.
