Few in the wrestling business have accomplished as much as Mark Henry has. Henry has been a member of the WWE roster for over two decades, and he still continues to give back to the company today. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame earlier this year, but the former World Heavyweight Champion has just received another tremendous honor. Mark Henry accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Cal Ramsey Awards ceremony not too long ago. A video of Henry’s acceptance speech, which took place last week, has been uploaded online. Mark Henry appeared to be very respectful and honored that he was selected as the recipient of the award. Check out the speech posted down below:

The MLW promotion has been gaining some steam and has also been landing some incredibly talented roster members this year. MLW has been pursuing talent for months now, and they have also been announcing that certain members of the crew have signed multi-year deals with them. Per PWInsider, MLW has just gained two new talents. One of those new stars is PCO (aka Pierre Carl Oulette,) while the other is Richard Holiday. In the case of PCO, he has already been announced to make his MLW debut during the upcoming set of TV tapings in Chicago, Illinois on November 8th. He will be facing Brody King in a No Disqualification match during those set of shows. Expect to see these two on MLW programming very soon.
WWE has managed to take the NXT show to multiple countries all over the world. The popularity of the series has led to the creation of NXT UK, which premiered on the WWE Network earlier this week. It appears now that WWE may already be preparing for another NXT program to launch in a different European country. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is considering starting a new NXT Germany brand. The company will be holding some tryouts in the country, and WWE is beginning a partnership with Germany’s wXw promotion as well. For what it’s worth, it has long been noted that Triple H has plans to expand the NXT show into several other countries all across the world.
