Mark Henry Reveals The Reason He Left WWE And Went To AEW

WWE Hall of Famer and AEW Star Mark Henry recently appeared on the Attitude Era podcast to talk about a variety of topics such as the reason he left WWE after he retired from in-ring competition and went to AEW.

Mark Henry said:

“I never went back and forth. I left [WWE] after I retired. I wanted to be more on the executive side, they wouldn’t hire me on the executive side. I didn’t have enough experience, the technical education, and going to AEW proved that I knew what I was doing.”

Mark Henry also talked about how he was helping other people in the WWE with their jobs.

Mark Henry said:

“I was helping other people at WWE with their jobs. People were like, ‘Hey, man, can you help me with this?’ I was always helping. When it came to scouting, I could see something and go, ‘That’s not right. Fix that, fix that,’ and then it was good.”
