Mark Henry Reveals Why He Left WWE for All Elite Wrestling

Last updated

It was revealed on this past weekend’s AEW Double or Nothing PPV that Mark Henry had joined the company. Also, it was confirmed that the World’s Strongest Man would be an analyst for the new AEW Rampage show that begins in August.

It was also noted in recent reports that Mark Henry will also be a talent scout for the company. With Henry discovering the likes of Bianca Belair, he could be a real boost to All Elite Wrestling as they look to the future.

Speaking on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio, Mark Henry said why he made the decision to leave WWE and make his way over to Jacksonville, Florida and AEW.

“My deal was up. It’s not something that was recent” Mark Henry revealed. “I can go back five or six months and I wanted a position in the [WWE] office. I talked to Vince himself and he said, ‘write it up. You’re somebody I’ll listen to.'”

“I was told that there was a lot of cleaning house and cuts that were happening and there were a lot to come” Henry continued. “So I had seen hundreds in the company go. I felt valuable enough that I wasn’t going anywhere.”

“When your deal comes up and the rights come up as to where you’re gonna go next, I wanted to do more” Mark Henry added.

“I always want to do more. If I can’t get that opportunity, I have to look for that opportunity somewhere else” the Worlds Strongest Man concluded.
