• Mark Henry Planning To Sue Lio Rush

Mark Henry and former WWE wrestler Lio Rush have been at war on social media over the past week.

Henry recently spoke to TMZ about the issue, where he said he’s planning to take legal action against The Man Of The Hour:

“If you go down to the Performance Center at NXT, probably 25 I think, people of color in the facility, probably about 80 plus percent of them I helped get them there. I mean, it’s completely opposite.

He knew that I get a lot of attention. I have a lot of followers and he released the album, or song, or something, and he wanted to use that to get some attention. Get some buzz.

If he would’ve called me, I would’ve done it anyway. We would’ve just worked it. I would of really talked it up, we would of made world news, but now he said something slanderous.

And, you can’t question my blackness. Like nobody can question my blackness, pull my black card. No, not allowed. Nobody.

My lawyer went to Harvard. I don’t know what kinda lawyers he’s dealing with, but I got those Ivy League people around me, and they’re pi$$ed!

He needs to apologize.”
