Report: Update on Mark Henry and his current WWE absence

According to a report by Dave Meltzer, there is reportedly “huge heat” on Mark Henry right now from the creative side of WWE. Henry informed the company that he needed to take time off to heal up injuries and explained why his current feud with Sheamus ended so abruptly. His decision to take time off was described as not being very popular and company officials still had yet to determine if his injuries would require any surgery. This situation was one of the reasons for JBL’s “took his ball and went home” references on commentary during RAW.
