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.
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Mark Henry talked about the way fans criticize AEW for signing former WWE talents. Henry said that the company has signed veterans such as himself Paul Wight and Christian because AEW is still a new company.
“So you haters out there, think about that little message today. You know what? AEW is not broken. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. They’re successful already. What our job is now, and I say our because now I work for them, is to fine tune.
All you musicians out there, you know when your guitar is off. You know when the keys in the piano are a little bit lax, and you have to get everything tightened and tuned. That’s what AEW needs. They’re successful already. They have winners, Kenny Omega, The Bucks, Cody, Sammy Guevara.”
Despite that, Mark Henry also criticized AEW’s product recently, as he stated that there is too much repetition in matches and Henry will help to fix that. AEW will ultimately sign those who will benefit the company in the long run and for the most part, it is likely to be a success.
