Mark Henry Says He Told An Elite Group Of African American Wrestlers Not To Come For Lio Rush

Since his being released from WWE last month, former Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush has had a war of words via twitter with WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry. This all came after Henry made some remarks about Lio Rush on Busted Open Radio.

Mark Henry brought up the situation with Lio Rush on a recent episode of Busted Open Radio on Sirius XM. Henry addressed the statement made by Lio Rush, claiming that Henry puts other African American Superstars down. Henry referred to himself as “wrestling royalty” and pointed out how his name is one that is spoken very highly of.

Henry went on to say, “There’s a reason I’ve been around for 24 years and never been fired.” From there he went on to talk about the existence of “an elite group of African American wrestlers” that he founded, called “The Delegation.” Henry added that they contacted him and asked if they needed to come after Lio Rush.

“I have founded a group called The Delegation. It is all of the elite African American wrestlers around the world. The conversation last night was about you, Lio. They were like, ‘do you want us to come for him?’ What did I say? ‘No, don’t come for him.’”

Mark Henry then added some more advice for Lio Rush, and suggested that he “drop the attitude.” He went on to say that “it’s not about race, it’s about being a man.”

“I’m untouchable and I am arrogant to an extent,” said Henry, before adding “you will arguably never know anybody that knows as much about this business than I do.”
