Teddy Long On Mark Henry’s AEW Exit: I Don’t Blame Him, Enjoy Your Life

Mark Henry’s contract with All Elite Wrestling expired at the end of May. During a recent episode of the Busted Open Radio, the WWE Hall of Famer mentioned that he was not going to renew his contract with the Jacksonville-based promotion. Fellow WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long also shared his thoughts on Henry’s departure.

While speaking on the Wrestling Time Machine on Sportskeeda’s WrestleBinge, Teddy Long shared his thoughts on Mark Henry parting ways with AEW. He mentioned that he wants Henry to enjoy his life and spend more time together with his son Jacob.

“Well now, that’s the thing I think Mark [Henry] is wanting to do too. I think he wanted to be right there with his son. Be by his side. Because he is really, you know… There’s two people that really certainly love each other. I have watched Jacob grow right up with him, man, and Mark has always been a great dad, been right there for him and all, every one of his appearances, games or whatever. When Mark could make it, he was always there if he wasn’t on the road.

“But right now, he has really got good time so he’s able to be with him at these events. So I don’t blame Mark man. Enjoy the rest of your life. Get with Jacob man! And just sit down and have a great time,” Teddy Long said.

Recently, Henry and Teddy Long made an appearance at MLW’s Battle Riot VI.
