WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry To Donate His Brain To CTE Research

Christopher Nowinski's fantastic work continues...

WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry will donate this brain to CTE research after he dies.

The World's Strongest Man spoke to former WWE Superstar Christopher Nowinski, who is now the CEO of the Concussion Legacy Foundation, on a recent episode of Busted Open Radio.

Here's how Henry came to the decision: “I definitely want to go on record that I’m donating my brain and I hope that something good can come out of y’all having my brain. Maybe it will help with how things work in the future that will benefit my kids and everyone else’s kids. We want the future to be better for our families and your families, speaking to the fans.”

Henry made his WWE debut all the way back in 1996 when he was just 24 years of age, and only recently retired from in-ring action. During the show he noted that he's suffered multiple concussions down the years.

As we've learned more and more surrounding the injuries the human brain can suffer in the ring, the professional wrestling business has changed dramatically, outlawing certain moves and goings on that cause damage to the head.
