WWE Officially Adds Mark Henry, Rey Mysterio, Khali, Orton, More To Greatest Royal Rumble

We're going to find out how much Mark Henry has left in the tank. Apparently, we'll find out the same about several other former World Heavyweight Champions, as well.

WWE has confirmed Hall of Famer Mark Henry for this Friday's Greatest Royal Rumble Match. This will serve as Henry's first match since the WrestleMania 33 Andre the Giant Battle Royal. Henry has only had one singles match since the start of 2017.

Rey Mysterio will also compete in his first match since the 2017 Royal Rumble that saw him return to action and turn some heads with his physical condition. Mysterio was forced to pull out of a planned NJPW match just a month ago, but vowed to return.

Add Great Khali's name to the ever-growing list. The 45-year old's last match in WWE was a one minute squash loss in 2014, but he competed in a couple of matches for Big Time Wrestling last year.

Other wrestlers added include former world champions Kevin Owens and Randy Orton, as well as Smackdown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon.
