Henry Talks Lack of Black WWE Champions, Wanting to Be a Heel, His New WWE Contract

– Mark Henry recently appeared on The Jay Mohr Podcast and talked about the lack of black WWE Champions:

“You know what, I was champion. Ron Simmons was champion. As far as time, it takes a long time to know what I know. I think the time has just passed. We have to recruit. I’ve been working with talent development over the last two years now and we’re trying to hunt young, handsome, athletic, smart people. I probably should have said smart first because it’s a psychology driven business. You have to take people on that emotional ride. If you’re not smart enough to pull that crowd in and give them some swerves here or there, you can’t do this business. I’m one of the few that’s still able to work with anybody. I don’t have to talk to you. I’ll see you in the ring and it’s going to go down. People are going to leave there going man, I got my money’s worth. We don’t have a lot of that and just to be honest, a lot of the young, black kids that we’re recruiting make me feel good. We’re trying to recruit them, man and they’re playing football. They’re playing basketball. They’re on Olympic teams for different sports. It’s hard to get the cream of the crop.”

Herny spoke on how he doesn’t want to be a babyface:

“Sometimes, like right now, if I have to smile and hug somebody one more time I’m going to throw up. In my heart of hearts, I want to put my foot in somebody’s throat and raise my hand and spit at people.”

Henry also commented on his new contract:

“I signed a three year deal. [I’m going to be in the WWE] for at least three years. I got a raise and everything.”

    When it comes to the WWE or World title it about who can perform at a high level. Not everybody in wrestling is meant to be WWE or World champion. Today everybody wants to be the top dog. But years ago it was not always that easy to get to the top as it is now. To many people want to be top dog either they try earning it or go crying about it on the internet or somewhere else. Not everybody can draw and some wrestler are just mid card top guys. That not a bad thing just the way it is you have to have the fans believe in you. If you get the fans to love you the WWE and World title is in your future. But if you just a great performer but don’t seem to have that draw power you are not going to be champion. It just the way it always been in the wrestling world and the way it will always be.

    Congrats to Henry on the raise, he deserves it. A hard worker, very underrated, hope he will get at least one run with the WWE Championship.
