• Mark Henry Thinks Current RAW Star Will Be The Next Face Of WWE
During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry was asked to pick a wrestler under the age of 25, who he thinks will become the next face of WWE (after Roman Reigns is done being a full-time wrestler).
Henry picked the 24-year-old Austin Theory as the next face of WWE, who made his main roster debut a few months ago.
Below is what the former World Heavyweight Champion said:
“I was torn and I ended up with Austin Theory.
He’s doing something that very few wrestlers get to do – play Robin to Batman, which is playing Robin to Vince McMahon.
[Steve] Austin did it, The Rock did it, Mankind did it, and you go down the list of guys that had serious interactions with Vince, those storylines with Vince: who did they become? The face of the company. The Guy.”
Mark Henry is currently working as a Coach in All Elite Wrestling. He also has an on-screen role of being an Interviewer on AEW Rampage.
