Mark Henry has a warning for ex-WWE wrestlers Lio Rush … stop defaming me, or my lawyers (trained at Harvard) will file a lawsuit against your ass !!
Let’s explain … Earlier this week, Rush – recently released by WWE – fired a barrage of tweets that attacked the Hall of Famer.
Rush accused Henry of torpedoing black wrestlers’ careers and wrote … “That’s why African-American talents on the largest platform will still not have equal opportunities because people like you are constantly tearing down your own people. Damn shame, honestly.”
TMZ Sports spoke to an extremely angry Mark Henry … who says Rush’s comments are direct nonsense.
“When you go to the Performance Center at NXT, probably 25, I think colored people in the facility, probably more than 80 percent of them, I helped them get there. I mean, it’s the opposite.”
So if it’s not true, why did Rush write what he did?
Mark tells us how Lio pursues his power … using his name and fame to promote his music career.
“He knew I got 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. Get some enthusiasm,” says Henry.
Mark’s relentlessly, if Rush had only asked for help, he would have stuck his music – no problem – but what he did instead was pretty much out of bounds.
“If he had called me, I would have done it anyway. We would have just worked it out. I really would have said it, we would have done world news, but now he said something slanderous.”
“And you can’t question my blackness. Like no one can question my blackness, draw my black card. No, not allowed. Nobody.”
Mark is so angry … he tells us that he is seriously considering filing a lawsuit.
“My lawyer went to Harvard. I don’t know which lawyers he’s dealing with, but I have these Ivy League people around me and they’re pissed off!”
But there is one thing Lio Rush can do before he finds his ass in a courtroom … Excuse me and be serious.
