• “It seems like going to AEW just makes you forget about how the business actually works” – Booker T Addresses Mark Henry’s Comments On The Sasha Banks – Naomi Situation
After Women’s Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks & Naomi walked out during RAW after the 6 pack challenge main event was announced, Vince McMahon wasn’t happy.
Vince ordered Corey Graves to announce the situation on commentary, so the fans watching can know what happened.
Corey then said the following on commentary:
“Sasha Banks & Naomi summarily and unprofessionally walked out.”
Some fans who are in support of Sasha & Naomi criticized Corey for these comments.
This led to RAW Superstar Carmella, who is Corey’s wife, defending her husband and tweeting the following:
“Imagine still living in a world where you think he just says whatever he wants. He does his job. Period.”
WWE Hall Of Famer & current AEW personality Mark Henry said the following about this situation on Busted Open Radio:
“My issue was not even with the walkout, my issue was not even with the disagreement, or the disclaimer.
My issue was with people on the show saying that was unprofessional.
Because I will have to tell you right now if that was my wife and I’m working on that show, I am seriously going to walk down to the announce table and I’m going to say, ‘Hey, you stay professional. Do your job and then I won’t have to walk down here to the ring to tell you to not do that again.’”
2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T addressed Henry’s comments towards Corey and said the following on his podcast:
“Now it seems like going to AEW just makes you forget about how the business actually really works.
I’m 100% sure Mark Henry knows that what comes out of Corey Graves’ mouth is something that he was told to actually say, normally 9 times out of 10, especially when it’s something to that magnitude. I wouldn’t imagine that’s his personal opinion.
I don’t think he would have an opinion just like he said on his show about this. He said, ‘I really can’t speak on it because I really don’t have enough information.’ But on the show, he’s there to do a job.
I’m almost sure Mark knows that Corey Graves was doing his job, so that’s what’s really, really shocking about that. Mark knows better than that. I’m a friend of Mark. Mark knows that.
I don’t know if it was just to get the internet buzzing or anything like that. Mark knows better than that, and to hear that, it’s shocking more than anything.”
