Mark Henry did a pretty good job at AEW Rampage

Henry was in the commentary booth with the other commentators and called the match for the Impact World Championship match between Kenny Omega and Christian Cage.

However, Henry did more than just call match-ups for the night; he played the role of the backstage interviewer as well.

Following that match, Henry went backstage and worked as an interviewer for the rest of the show, starting with Christian after he defeated Omega.

The moment felt wholesome because as the interview began Christian took the time out and said that he’s happy to see Henry at this moment, to which Henry smiled warmly.

Henry would appear for the second time before the main event of the night when he conducted a split-screen interview with Britt Baker and Red Velvet. The two wrestlers then head down to the ring to fight for AEW Women’s World Championship where Britt Baker retained her title.

Surely, seeing Henry as an interviewer is something we never saw but one thing that can’t be overlooked is Mark Henry’s physique and it is not a secret that he wants to get back in the ring.
