As previously reported, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry and former WWE Superstar Ryback got into a war of words over the weekend. It was sparked by Ryback’s previous comments labelling the WWE titles as props, which angered Henry, who stated that Ryback was difficult to work with and dangerous. Later on, Ryback fired back with a now deleted tweet claiming that Mark Henry was asleep before their WrestleMania 29 match and that Henry didn’t want to spend time coming up with a good match for them. Yesterday, AEW wrestler Chris Jericho later took to Twitter to defend and praise Mark Henry.

Jericho said after Henry figured things out, he became a “true main event star.” He wrote the following:

“For the record, @TheMarkHenry is a great worker, a true gentleman & STRONG AF for reals!! He also made all the towns & ate all the crow for years…until he figured the s*** out and became a TRUE main event star for the @wwe! He also attacked me in a hotel room once…grrrr!”
