WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry recently appeared on the Heavy Live with Scoop B show to talk all things pro-wrestling. Highlights from the interview can be found below.
On who CM Punk should wrestle if he ever returned:
Yes, yes. And you know who the best competitor for CM Punk is? Daniel Bryan. CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan would be historic. The match would be an hour long, at least. I mean, historically good. Both of those guys are brilliant psychologists.
On pro-wrestlers telling stories:
The thing about pro wrestling that people underestimate– you look at football and basketball and golf and all those tiddlywinks. I’m not going to say baseball because most of those guys have high school education, if that, but in pro wrestling, you have to be smart. The common thread between a lot of players in wrestling is the brilliance and the ability to grasp the concepts and tell stories. So, you’re like a writer, you’re like a producer – that’s what you’re like, and the talent at the same time. So, it’s complicated.
How he wants Ronda Rousey to come back:
I can’t wait. I pray in my prayers every night. I pray that Ronda Rousey comes back to wrestle, man. I hope she does. If anybody knows Ronda, please tell Ronda to come back to wrestling. I mean, that was the best part of watching last year’s WrestleMania, was to see her development. [It was] the BEST beginning in pro wrestling I ever saw,” revealed Henry. “Nobody’s ever– Kurt Angle, but Kurt had a year to wrestle, wrestle, wrestle before everybody saw who he was. Ronda? Her first match was a pay-per-view, just like mine was… But her first big deal was WrestleMania, in the main event!
Thinks that Rousey and Charlotte would be a great main event:
I think that the greatness of Charlotte would even challenge Ronda Rousey. I think that also Becky is at home getting ready to have a baby and she won’t be back in time for WrestleMania, so I’m already making the business decision to put her and Charlotte together [laughs]. But the year after next, I want to see Becky get that chance, one-on-one,” stated Henry.
