WWE Hall of Famer and AEW star Mark Henry felt emotional while watching Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens’ reunion on last week’s episode of SmackDown. The show closed with Owens and Zayn reuniting and embracing in the ring ahead of WrestleMania 39, and Henry discussed the segment on Busted Open Radio.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On getting emotional watching the segment: “I’m just gonna say it: There’s very few times you get the feel-good moment to where it makes you almost cry. Like the movie when the dog saves the baby. It’s just like Disney, you know? The Disney finish! That was the Disney finish last night, man. I found myself going [deep breath] ‘Whoa, that was heavy.’ It was redemption, It was forgiveness, It was grace. Mercy. All those things that make … my heart feel better. It was a heartfelt moment, and it’s hard to create because it’s wrestling — big brutes, people hitting each other. But to be able to get that emotion like that? That’s a skill, that’s an art. It was well, well done.”
On their real-life friendship making the angle work: “They really do give a s**t about each other.”
