Pro wrestling legend and former WWE Superstar Mark Henry made headlines when he made his debut at the AEW Double Or Nothing pay-per-view. Fans were excited to see what he could accomplish in the company.
The WWE Hall Of Famer is set to be an analyst for AEW’s upcoming show AEW Rampage and will also work in talent development. The World’s Strongest Man has also signed a multi-year deal with the company. Henry had previously stated that he isn’t in AEW to fix the company as it isn’t broken. However, there are definitely some things that the company can improve on.
While speaking to Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions, Mark Henry explained how he will be turning the screws in AEW. Henry also criticized AEW for having too much repetition in their matches and wants to see a reduction in that in the future.
”Wrestling-wise, I want to see less…I want everyone to watch the matches before them because there is a repetition thing. Someone will do a tope and the next match will have two topes and the next will have three. Stop trying to out-do what you saw before and find something else to do. Repetition is a pet peeve of mine and I feel you’re not watching the product if you go do something and someone else did the same thing. I love the Bucks doing superkicks. Why are there three matches on the card where someone does a superkick before them? If that was me, I would be upset about it.”
Mark Henry certainly has a lot of knowledge when it comes to the pro wrestling world and it will be invaluable in teaching the pro wrestlers of tomorrow how to improve their skills inside the squared circle.
