As previously reported, WWE superstar Mark Henry was interviewed on Tuesday by the Power 92.3 radio station in Little Rock, Arkansas to promote this week's Smackdown tapings. We posted a video of the interview earlier today, here's a transcript of some of the highlights of what Henry said about:

The WWE Locker Room's Reaction To The Rock:

“Rock is a great talent, but nobody’s taking pictures and asking for autographs. He’s a wonderful talent, he’s one of us, we respect him [and] he respects what we do. We just go about it and try to take advantage of the situation. He’s one of those that’s recognizable in many realms, and we appreciate him for coming back and still loving what we do and doing what he calls home.”

When He Plans On Retiring From WWE:

“When I retire there’s a lot of stuff I’m gonna do. [Right now] It’s all about wrestling, it’s all about performing, doing what I do best. [It's about] extending my legacy and making it to when I look back I can’t say I didn’t do enough, I didn’t put in my due diligence… I’m enjoying it and reaping the benefits from it as well, but there’s gonna come a time when the wheels on the bus are gonna stop rolling.”

Another World Title Run & Sunday's Elimination Chamber Match:

“I see one. I don’t think that there’s any question. No guy in there [Elimination Chamber] is gonna beat me. That’s just the way it is.”

Who He Would Wrestle If He Could Face Anybody From Any Era:

“I would have loved to have faced Andre The Giant or Hulk Hogan. Maybe Ernie Ladd… Gorgeous George. It’s a few guys that I go back and I look at their legacies and they never faced nobody like me. It’s not only a challenge for them, but it’s a challenge for me. I would have to put aside that I idolized them and do what I have to do.”
