Over the weekend, we reported on the difference of opinion between Ryback and Mark Henry. It all started after Ryback tweeted that wrestling is fake and championships are props. Mark Henry replied on the Busted Open radio show he co-hosts calling him a “bitter ass,” and an “assh*le,” and said he owes the wrestling world an apology. Ryback would then spend his Sunday firing back at Henry, first defending himself by saying he was being sarcastic and loves the wrestling business. He’d then add Henry is a paid puppet of WWE, that John Cena refused to work with him and that before their match at WrestleMania XXIX, Mark Henry was sleeping, and an agent wished him luck “working that fat piece of sh*t.” In a now-deleted tweet, he also said, “I will break him apart like no other along with the sh*t company that doesn’t care about him that that put him up to this.”
Those were strong words by Ryback, and on today’s episode of Busted Open, Mark Henry has said he and Cena would ride together, that he wanted the agent’s name and that if anything physical ever goes down between them, it’ll be hospital time for Ryback.
Until you walk up to me and punch me in my face, the world won’t know how violent I can be. So when you feel froggy like that, you let me know where I need to get a plane ticket to. I will show up for that because even at 50 years old, I’m more man than most men will ever want to be in their dreams. You start talking about cutting promos. I’m not cutting a promo. I’m saying this from my soul. I will tear your flesh off bro, and that’s a promise. I’m not threatening you. I’m just saying as a reactionary thing, if you hit me, there will be hospital time. I’ll make sure of it. That’s my response to Mr. Ryback, and I will never speak on it again because it’s a waste of my energy. I want to make this show, and this show should be more about peace because it’s Martin Luther King Day.Mark Henry
As Ryback now has Henry blocked on Twitter, and Henry says he will never speak about Ryback again, this issue may cease to escalate further. Ryback is currently away from the business but is looking to return, and hopefully, when he does, he doesn’t cross paths with Henry at an indie show or conventions. If he does, it sounds like it could be scary, and everyone needs to get out of the way.
