The first time Mark Henry appeared on Monday Night Raw was in 1996.

Two decades later, he will still do whatever it takes just to be a part of WrestleMania.

"Man, I'm so looking forward to it," Henry said. "I'll put the ring up. I'll do whatever - sweep the venue, whatever, as long as I get to go to WrestleMania in Texas."

'The World's Strongest Man' has put a lot of miles on his body both in the ring as a competitor, and outside of it as an Olympian and power weightlifting champion, but he's still excited to be on the Road to WrestleMania...

On WWE's biggest show taking place in his home state...

Henry: It's a thrill like no other thrill outside of my kids being born. There's nothing that compares to being on the stage at WrestleMania. I mean, it's an unbelievable, almost overwhelming feeling. I've enjoyed being at double-digit WrestleMania's in my career, and I'm just excited to be able to go to another one, especially in my home state. I've had the luxury and the pleasure of being in WrestleMania in Texas, being in Houston, now it'll be awesome to come to AT&T Stadium and perform in front of 100,000 people.

On WrestleMania Axxess...

Henry: They've always put me to work on Axxess. I look forward to being there, doing the question and answers, and signing autographs for the faithful. My kids love going to Axxess. It's always a time I can actually go and see my kids smile and be entertained, just like the mothers and fathers that are there to entertain their kids. Fan Axxess is one of the best things this company does.

His thoughts on another Texas-native, The Undertaker, and his WrestleMania opponent, Shane McMahon...

Henry: You know, Shane has never disappointed. He's always been a guy that was able to rise to the occassion. And when I say rise to the occasion, Shane likes to do the unbelievable. You'll see him jump off of stuff that you wouldn't think a human being would jump off of. The Undertaker, we don't even have to talk about his legacy. He's carved out a WrestleMania history that nobody can even get close to. I'm just looking forward to seeing what's next, just like the rest of the fans.

On if this WrestleMania will be their last...

Henry: I can't speak for The Undertaker, but I'm hoping this will be a successful WrestleMania. It may be my last. I'm getting a little long in the tooth. I just want to be able to go out and have a good time if it is my last. I want to make an impression.
