Mark Henry Says His Son Wants To Become A Wrestler

WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry has revealed that his son is eager to follow in his footsteps and become a wrestler.

Henry recently signed with AEW as a trainer/producer and will be part of the broadcast team for Rampage which debuts next month.

Speaking on AEW Unrestricted, Mark Henry said:

“If there is going to be a second-generation wrestler to come out of the Henry family, it will probably be my son Jacob, who is a superfan. He really loves wrestling and has said that he doesn’t care if he is a pro bowl player, he’s only going to play for about four or five years and then he’s going to quit playing football and start wrestling.

“I’m like, ‘Well, what if you end up being the best guy in the league?’ He’s like, ‘Well, I’m going to have to make enough money early so I can go and establish my life and I can do what I want to do, which is wrestling’. I’m like, ‘More power to you. When you get there, hopefully, I will still be alive’, but if I’m not here to enjoy it, I’m sure that the fans will really enjoy it.”

Jacob wouldn’t the first second-generation talent if he was to ever join his father in AEW, with the likes of Austin & Colten Gunn, Brock Anderson, Hook and many others all breaking through, along with more established second-generation names like Cody and Dustin Rhodes.
