• Mark Henry Says He Would’ve Threatened The WWE Commentators For Calling Sasha Banks & Naomi Unprofessional If One Of Them Was His Wife
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.
According to Fightful Select, 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.’”
