WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry, who signed with All Elite Wrestling in 2021, working as a Coach and member of the broadcast team, revealed during Monday’s episode of Busted Open Radio on Sirius XM that he will be departing the company, but that he is not leaving the business.

“My contract with AEW is set to expire tomorrow, the 28th, and today of course is the 27th, so I wanted to address that matter, and Tony Khan said at the press conference that he was very happy and proud of what we did together, and I feel exactly the same way.

I appreciate everything that happened at AEW with Tony Khan and the Khan family, I had a great experience, and I do feel like that it’s time for me to take more time to handle TheMarkHenry.com and the Remarkable brand and focus that attention on what my next steps are, and I am not going to be renewing my deal, and I think that, you know, it’s a mutual thing.

If I can’t dedicate 100 percent of myself, then it’s only fair for both parties to end the relationship on a positive note, and like I said, it’s been nothing but positive. I’ve done my best to help as many people as I could, there was still some thing that I wanted to help with that I didn’t get to finish, but those people have my phone number and any time that they need to call me, I’m available for them.

I am not leaving pro wrestling, what I’m saying is that I’m going to take some time to work on some projects, and I’m going to come back again full force, because that’s what I do.”
