‘Big Show’ Paul Wight was asked who he would like to see join him in AEW, and he named a certain WWE Hall of Famer.
That Hall of Famer is Mark Henry, who Wight sounded very keen to have involved at some point.
Speaking on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast, Wight said:
“Honestly, there’s one guy I miss all the time, and I don’t know if he’s gonna wrestle again. It’s Mark Henry. I love him. He does [still got it]. Mark would be amazing here because he’s got an eye for finding talent. That’s a thing about Mark that a lot of people don’t know because of the way his character’s done on TV, there’s so much depth to him.
“He’s a lot smarter than people know. He knows everyone under the sun. He’s a got a rolodex full of athletes that he’s helped get better, train better, become wrestlers, get into colleges they want to go to, get tryouts for pro teams that they want to go to. He’s unbelievable. His heart is so big the way he gives to athletes and helps athletes. For me personally, I’d love Mark here.”
Henry did actually say very recently that he’s planning to get back in the ring within the next six months.
Paul Wight will serve as color commentator for AEW Dark: Elevation, and will be wrestling at some point too.
