There has been a rather heated war of words as of late between Mark Henry and Ryback. The two have traded barbs of late with Henry saying that wrestlers thought Ryback was unsafe and Ryback claiming that John Cena refused to work with Henry.
Now, Henry has given his rebuttal and he did not mince words. During his latest appearance on Busted Open Radio, Henry said he could have a nap and be better than Ryback. Except he didn’t say it so nicely. Here is the quote, courtesy of Wrestling News:
“Sometimes the things that make you better and the things that make the world interesting is a conduit, something that’s in between greatness and talent and what do you do to bring them together? In pro wrestling, that is the most important thing in wrestling because you have to have a guy that can lead somebody that’s the sh*ts and make them somebody that’s great one day. We’ve all had our moments. There was a day when, guys, I hate to say it, I was the sh*ts. It sucks to say it but I’ll tell you what. At the end of the day, I was pretty f**king good. Even when I was working with people like Ryback, I could take a nap and be better than that mother f**ker any day of the week. Holla at you boy.
WrestleMania, when supposedly some agent said it, yea, ok, I believe that s**t. I believe that, that I’m the sh*ts? Oh, let me see. After you left, the guy you said John Cena, you put John Cena out on front street and I’m sure John Cena would probably make a statement about how when he first got into wrestling, who did he ride in the car with? Me. Who’s the guy that went to the office and say, ‘Hey man, you all need to see John Cena rap. The dude is talented.’ They said, ‘You know what, this is awesome.’ John was mad at me because he didn’t want to be looked at as the rapper guy, but you got Thuganomics. You’re welcome.
F*ck you Ryback. You’re trying to tell me that I don’t know what I’m talking about? That I’m not great? That I was the sh*ts? You based it off and you throw it off an unnamed agent? Name his name. You named John Cena. Name the agent. I’ll call him. I’ll get him on the show and I’ll say, ‘Listen, I’m not saying that this happened, but at any point did you ever tell Ryback I was the sh*ts.’ I was famous for taking naps. I take naps every day. There’s nothing wrong with it. It’s great. Vince McMahon himself has ribbed me, poured water on me, while I was sleeping because everybody would go, hey, is anybody got eyes on Mark Henry because he usually naps around this time. Find him. Oh yea, we had a lot of fun with my naps.”
Mark Henry and Ryback feuded with one another in 2013. Henry picked up a win over Ryback at WrestleMania 29 and then again at Survivor Series later that year.
