AEW has had an excellent reputation when it comes to their working environment and backstage atmosphere.
Mark Henry, signed in May at AEW Double or Nothing 2021, spoke to TV Insider and discussed a number of topics. Upon being asked about the atmosphere in AEW and his working relationship with AEW President Tony Khan, The World’s Strongest Man was full of praise.
Henry described Tony Khan as an “open book” and someone he could talk to about anything. Mark Henry called his experience with AEW “very rewarding.”
“It has been very rewarding because as a teacher or mentor you feel like what you’re saying is being received. Everything I’ve done has been individual, one-on-one. I’ve known Tony [Khan, president of AEW] for a long time. We haven’t talked about wrestling because I was with the other company, but I’ve met him numerous times. With him being an open book, it has been the biggest gift. A lot of people can’t talk to their boss like I can talk to Tony,” said Mark Henry. (H/T: TV Insider)
