AEW star Lio Rush has opened up about his current relationship with Mark Henry, after they had issues with each other in the past.
The story was essentially that Rush had said he wasn’t happy about his pay in WWE, and Henry’s response was that he should manage his money better, and things just escalated from there.
Now they’re both together in the same promotion, it sounds like they’ve talked out their differences and are getting on just fine.
Speaking on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions, Lio Rush said:
“Me and Mark Henry’s relationship is super cordial now. I think it came down to two very strong personalities and two very different eras of wrestling and we agree to disagree. We’re about to be working together now and AEW is such an incredible place to be. It would be foolish of us to carry on any kind of whatever it was as it was pretty random and wild.
“The first time I meet Tony Khan, I was walking backstage trying to meet him for the first time and somebody told me he was in his office. I’ll never forget, it was like a movie scene, I open up the door a little and I see Tony Khan. I open it up more and I see Mark Henry. I’m like, ‘Of all times, why now?’, but I’m glad it happened that way because Tony knew about the issues we had together and he said we should probably talk it out, which we all agreed.
“We talked a little that night and I saw him again the other week. It was me coming down the hotel elevator and there’s Mark Henry just solo. I’m like, ‘Alright, great’. We started talking and later on in the night, we figured we should take a picture because it was a pretty cool thing itself, just that we were able to have a conversation and I thought it would be cool for everyone to know that we had that conversation and squashed it.”
Rush seems to currently be involved with Dante Martin and Matt Sydal, with the storyline being that he was trying to tutor Martin, Sydal wasn’t happy about it, but Rush proved his worth by getting Sydal a match with CM Punk.
