New AEW analyst Mark Henry has offered some insight into how he’s going to help try to improve the promotion and its talent.
Henry said on AEW Dynamite last week that he isn’t there to fix AEW because it’s not broken, but he’s since pointed out that there are indeed some flaws.
Speaking with Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions, he said:
“We have to work on the social media aspect of what’s going out and what’s being portrayed that you want to be an example of what people see. AEW is more brash and has more of an adult feel, but you have to counter-balance that. You have to do stuff in the community and with live events where you give back to the city and be an example instead of a problem.
“Wrestling-wise, I want to see less… I want everyone to watch the matches before them because there is a repetition thing. Someone will do a tope and the next match will have two topes and the next will have three. Stop trying to out-do what you saw before and find something else to do. Repetition is a pet peeve of mine and I feel you’re not watching the product if you go do something and someone else did the same thing. I love the Bucks doing superkicks. Why are there three matches on the card where someone does a superkick before them? If that was me, I would be upset about it.”
Tony Khan has cleared up that Mark Henry won’t necessarily be a color commentator analyst for AEW Rampage, and he’s got a current wrestler in mind who’ll be doing that.
It’ll be very interesting to see if we do see a change with more veterans coming in, especially now that Henry’s made his intentions publicly clear.
