• Mark Henry Has An Old School Plan For AEW
WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry discussed his AEW signing on a recent episode of Busted Open Radio.
Henry wants to bring in the older demographic to All Elite Wrestling and revealed how he plans on doing it.
Here’s what he said:
“Talent wise and the way that the show flows and the high flying has brought in the young people. And the way that you bring in the older demographic is you use the old school way, the grass roots way. We’re going to have to be in the newspapers again. We’re going to have to reach out to the communities we serve.
All of the arenas and all the shows that we do, there’s going to be a presence in the local media. TV, newspapers, any way we can get attention in that town. And the way you do that is, if you’re on the 6 o’clock news before the show starts, you have to have representation reaching out to the community saying, ‘hey, we have the Boys and Girls Club kids here. We’re going to bring them in and have a good time, eat popcorn, drink colas and have a good time.’
And you’re going to have to support the Special Olympics. You’re going to have to support local things that are important and pertinent to those communities, to get them to say, ‘you know what? Man I’m going to have to tune in and watch these guys.’ That’s what older people do.
So we’re not going to change the direction and go away from the younger movement. I’m still kind of a boomer, I’m not out there in the streets like when I was younger. So I don’t know all the terminology and everything that the kids are doing these days.
But I know what the old people do. And that’s where I’m going to put my focus.”
