Speaking on Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry has called out his WrestleMania 29 opponent Ryback for being unsafe in the ring.
The former World Heavyweight Champion said that a lot of people within WWE thought that Ryback was “difficult” and “dangerous” inside the squared circle:
“A lot of his peers look at him as difficult. A lot of his peers looked at him as dangerous. And yes, we talk about it on this show all the time. That [WWE] is a show, it’s sports-entertainment. It is a reflection of sports. He don’t use the term ‘fake,’ the championship is the championship. It’s not a prop, and he’s wrong. I’ve been a World Champion in three sports. And I consider pro wrestling one of those, but it was the politics that got me to the top. It was the fact that I’m a damn good entertainer because entertainment is in the name of the job description.”
This debate was sparked after Ryback, who held the Intercontinental Championship during his time with WWE, said that all titles within the company are “props”. You can read exactly what the former WWE star had to say by clicking here.
