TMZ had an interview with Mark Henry. Henry is upset because of Rush’s statement and he made comments on his tweets.

“If you go down to the performance centre at NXT, probably 25 I think, people of color in the facility, probably about 80 plus per cent of them I helped get them there. I mean, it’s opposite.”

Henry says Rush is using this as an opportunity to boost his music career and undoubtedly, creating a controversy would bring him a lot of attention. 

“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.

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

Mark Henry has also mentioned that Lio Rush should apologize before it is too late.

Henry said, “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 pissed!”

But, there is one thing Lio Rush can do before he finds his ass in a courtroom … say sorry, and really mean it. He needs to apologize.”

Mark Henry wants Rush to apologize for what all he had said. He is in terrible misfit of anger as he believes Rush has misjudged what he has done for people.
