Mark Henry – ‘When I Die, They’re Going To Talk About All The Black People I Influenced’



On a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry weighed in on the significance of African American representation in professional wrestling.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the importance of giving African Americans a platform in wrestling: “For the culture of Black people in pro wrestling … you have to pull the Black issue up, because the school is not going to do it in the history books. I was entrusted the mantle by one of the greats, Ernie Ladd … You go through the collection of African-American wrestlers that are on TV today, they have a link to me. My link in the chain is a very, very strong one.”

On the people he wants to help and influence with his career: “When I die, they’re not going to talk about my championships. They’re not going to talk about how much weight I lifted. They’re going to talk about all the Black people I influenced.”
