Mark Henry’s Acclaim

On a recent episode of Booker T’s Hall of Fame podcast, Mark Henry shared his thoughts on MJF’s contributions to AEW. Henry highlighted MJF’s selflessness and his dedication to the company’s success.

He pointed out that MJF could easily demand the spotlight for himself, given his stature and popularity. However, he chooses to share it, indicating his desire for the greater good of the organisation.

Henry stated, “I think that he’s polarising enough that every show you already market the fact that MJF is going to be there. For him not to be greedy when he could be, he could say, ‘No I don’t want Edge, I don’t want Adam Copeland, I don’t want Bryan Danielson, I don’t want Samoa Joe, I don’t want a CM Punk, I want the spotlight for myself’ means that he is, just like I said just a minute ago, a guy that wants the greater good. That wants to be successful not by the means of it’s just me, but successful by the means of the organisation and the programme that you’re trying to build. He is brilliant beyond his years.”
