WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry has given his thoughts on the NXT brand going head-to-head with AEW starting in October.
NXT will air on Wednesday nights on the USA Network from 8-1oPM starting on September 18th.
On the flip side, the first AEW on TNT show will take place at the Capital One Arena in Washington, DC on October 2nd. The show has sold out.
The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion gave his thoughts on the situation while talking on a recent episode of Busted Open Radio.
“Vince [McMahon] looks at wrestling as being his. If you try to take something that belongs to him, he’s going to cut your handoff. Reach on my plate while I’m eating and see what happens to your hand. I’m gonna stab you in the top of your hand with a fork. That’s Vince, wrestling is his plate and you are reaching into his plate.”
“I don’t know anybody that likes to fight and be a tough guy more than him. Sometimes you can do it with your fists or a pencil and Vince can do it with both.”
