Lio Rush Talks About Burying The Hatchet With Mark Henry Behind-The-Scenes In AEW

Lio Rush recently appeared as a guest on the Oral Sessions With Renee Paquette podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During his appearance on the popular program, the AEW star spoke about having a cordial relationship with Mark Henry now after Tony Khan helped the two squash their past beef.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

Says he and Henry have a very cordial relationship now: “Me and Mark Henry’s relationship is super cordial now. I think it came down to two very strong personalities and two very different eras of wrestling and we agree to disagree. We’re about to be working together now and AEW is such an incredible place to be. It would be foolish of us to carry on any kind of whatever it was as it was pretty random and wild.”

How Tony Khan told Henry and Rush to work out their issues: “The first time I meet Tony Khan, I was walking backstage trying to meet him for the first time and somebody told me he was in his office. I’ll never forget, it was like a movie scene, I open up the door a little and I see Tony Khan. I open it up more and I see Mark Henry. I’m like, ‘Of all times, why now?’, but I’m glad it happened that way because Tony knew about the issues we had together and he said we should probably talk it out, which we all agreed.”

Says they talked that night and squashed their beef: “We talked a little that night and I saw him again the other week. It was me coming down the hotel elevator and there’s Mark Henry just solo. I’m like, ‘Alright, great’. We started talking and later on in the night, we figured we should take a picture because it was a pretty cool thing itself, just that we were able to have a conversation and I thought it would be cool for everyone to know that we had that conversation and squashed it.”
