Mark Henry On Making A Difference In AEW

In a previous interview with Scott Fishman of TV Insider, Mark Henry discussed how he was making a difference in AEW. He noted that he would see his influence on some of the talent.

“I feel I’ve had a really strong influence, especially with the big guys,” said Henry. “Working with Will Hobbs, for instance. He has all the tools. He just didn’t have the confidence and the direction of how a big guy works. That just takes time. Everyone expects AEW to become the No. 1 world power overnight. That’s not how it works. It’s fortunate Tony realizes that. He allows talent to develop at their own pace without that extra pressure.

“All the guys are able to develop at a pace where they’re going to succeed. Max Caster is another big guy. I have to tell Max, ‘Max, you’re 260 pounds. You’re a big guy. Don’t work smaller because the people you are working with are smaller.’ I called TMZ because we want to not only expand in the wrestling space but the entertainment space. Now Max is doing weekly rap videos for TMZ. So, we are expanding within entertainment media. I’m having an effect.”
