On the night Banks and Naomi left the arena, announcer Corey Graves on-air stated that Sasha Banks and Naomi “summarily and unprofessionally left the arena”. Consequently, Mark Henry was not convinced by Graves’s statement.

On the podcast, Henry mentioned that his issue was with individuals on the show saying that it was unprofessional. In addition, he stated, “I’m going to tell you right now. If that was my wife and I’m working on that show. I’m walking 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.[28:47-29:14]”

As a response, Booker T said, “It seemed like going to AEW just makes you forget about how the business actually really works. Now, Mark, I’m 100 percent sure Mark Henry knows that what comes out of Corey Graves’s mouth is something that he was told to actually say.”

Adding to this, he said, when it comes to something so important; he doubts that Graves will share his opinion. Moreover, it makes no sense to say that Jimmy Uso should go to the announcer’s table and say something like that since it would lead WWE to fire him later that evening.
