The AEW Double Or Nothing pay-per-view was certainly a night of shocking moments and incredible matches. It also included a couple of debuts, the biggest of which was Mark Henry, who made his first appearance in AEW.
The WWE Hall Of Famer is set to be an analyst for AEW’s upcoming show AEW Rampage. AEW President Tony Khan would also reveal more details regarding Henry’s role in the show and how he even made his way to AEW.
After the conclusion of the AEW Double Or Nothing pay-per-view, Chris Jericho held a press conference, where he answered a lot of questions. This included Mark Henry’s status in AEW.
Chris Jericho said the company will definitely benefit from Mark Henry’s experience, both inside and outside the ring. Le Champion added that he is hopeful Mark Henry will be making a return to the squared circle in AEW as well.
“I think any time we can have a guy with the experience of Mark Henry, both in the ring and outside the ring, just helps our company. It’s one of the things that we needed very much when we first started because it was basically me, Dustin Rhodes, and Dean Malenko were the guys that had decades of experience on live T.V. Here we are a year and a half later and our guys and girls are still learning. So having a guy like Mark come in is the same thing like having a guy like Paul Wight come in.
“He can do anything behind the scenes. He can do anything in front of the scenes. He can talk and maybe one day he can put on the knee pads and the boots and wrestle again. Or even put on a salmon colored sports coat. But any time we can have somebody like Mark with that quality as a person and that quality as a performer, it just makes us a better company.”
We will have to see what Mark Henry will have to say on the upcoming episode of AEW Dynamite as there is no doubt Henry will have a lot of things he wants to get off his chest.
