Jim Ross spoke about the brilliant AEW Double or Nothing 2021 PPV, where he covered the debut of legendary WWE performer Mark Henry. Mark Henry was known as the World’s Strongest Man while he was working for WWE. He is a genuine strongman and could lift most WWE wrestlers quite easily.
However, Mark Henry is a WWE original and he was one of WWE’s longest-serving wrestlers. He retired while still working for WWE and was put into the WWE Hall of Fame. Mark Henry will be part of the AEW Rampage that will start on the 13th of August.
He has reportedly signed a multi-year deal with AEW. Mark recently spoke about his conversation with Vince McMahon before he joined AEW. According to Jim Ross, Mark will add a lot of value to AEW.
Jim Ross Comments on Mark Henry Adding Value to AEW Rampage
“He likes helping others,” Ross said.
“You know he’s got a good eye for talent, he’s coachable, he likes to mentor so that was pretty cool. It gives me credence that the Friday night show Rampage is not going to be a throwaway, it’s not a space filler.
I was kind of surprised that Mark got out from under the WWE banner and is coming to work with our team. “It’s a win-win for everybody I believe and it also opens the door potentially down the road for Mark to have another match or two.
He’s still got the itch, it seems to me like. I didn’t see him all day, so they kept him sequestered all day. It didn’t leak, it never got out and he’ll do a real good job there. He’ll be a part of the team on a regular, ongoing basis in multiple roles.
Part of the Rampage broadcast team which will premiere on Friday the 13th in August”. Mark Henry had a splendid WWE career and even won the World Heavyweight Title once during his last push in WWE. Mark hasn’t won many titles in WWE, but he still fought some of WWE best wrestlers of all time.
In fact, the only reason why he retired was that he believed he wasn’t being used well by the WWE. Jim Ross is also a legendary WWE commentator and he too left WWE to join AEW as a Senior Advisor.
