Mark Henry on CM Punk's return and impact

CM Punk's return to AEW is causing mixed reactions. Some think that it will be a great thing for AEW and CM Punk, while there are many who are not really 'in favor' of CM Punk and don't want to see him. The legends of the wrestling scene commented on CM Punk's return, and one of them is Mark Henry.

In an interview with Busted Open Radio, he commented on the return of AEW's big star. “I’m excited. I’m excited for more than just Punk, I mean Punk is enough. Punk is somebody that I highly respect, that I feel like is gonna rejuvenate […] the lifeforce of pro wrestling.

When you’re away, sometimes you come back, and you feel like, ‘You know what, I can’t rest on my laurels. I gotta push myself to make the fans get all that they need from what they think and what they hope that Punk is.’ And I think that’s what we’re gonna get tomorrow night”.

Mark Henry talked about his career and what motivated him the most throughout his career. His greatest desire was to silence critics and those who doubted him. He succeeded in this many times.

Henry thinks that CM Punk could do the same this time. “There is no other feeling that I’ve had in my life that made me feel more like a man than to look at the person that doubted me, and turn my head and go, ‘What’d you say? I don’t hear you.

Tell me again what you said that drew this reaction from me. Say it again. Those moments are the best moments for any man and woman that’s prideful. You gotta have pride. I feel like Punk is a prideful man, otherwise, he wouldn’t contest everything.

I want a dude to be prideful, and to be aggressive because basically, we going to war together. It might not be a physical war, but it’s a battle of public opinion. It’s a battle of ratings. It’s a battle of whose show is better”.
