Steve Austin Puts Over Mark Henry

Steve Austin told the folks over at LAW that he "loved every second" of Mark Henry's "retirement speech" from last week's WWE Monday Night Raw. He did admit, however, that anyone that's been around the business saw that coming a mile away.

    Austin is right anyone in the bussiness…..and fans who have watched for years could see it coming a mile away in regards to Henry’s fake retirerment……I saw it coming once the rumors stated online….. the clue was Henry’s ranting on twitter over his supposed Retirement. and saying it was false.. he made to big a issue out of it then he should have.

    By time he appeared on RAW in a was obviously fake. hard to believe people fell for it.

      Well people fell for it because Mark Henry did a stupendous job. Sure, there were hints that it was a work and of course everyone thought it would end up being a work before it happened… but once Mark was out there, he gave a hell of a promo with genuine tears. It was a magical moment – from the promo to the WSM. It was awesome. I bought it AND THAT is why I love wrestling. Sometimes we can allow ourselves to turn the “smark” off.

      “I saw it coming once the rumors stated online”. You’re an idiot.

      LOL. If you had to be told about it online, you didn’t really see it coming.

      because the ‘whole world’ is NOT on twitter or follow the (fake) tweets anyway (i kno i dont) so not everyone really knew wat was going on “all day on twitter”. just wat the announcers told us, which could have been real or fake.
      Edges was real, so henrys could have been as well, to someone who is not on twitter.

    Why is anyone talking about Mark Henry? Who cares? The Iron Sheik is a wrestling icon who might have been the most compelling heel the wrestling world has ever known. Here’s hoping he gets the money he needs for his surgery so he can live out the balance of his life in some comfort.
