Mark Henry recently spoke with the Dallas Morning News for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the discussion with the local media outlet, the WWE Hall of Fame legend spoke about the reason he decided to join AEW.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where "The World's Strongest Man" touches on this topic.

"I feel like I have a lot left to give. I have a lot of understanding, a lot of knowledge, a lot of experience in different things and I was not doing enough of those things as a job. I had a lot of value and I had a lot of understanding, and I was not getting paid for those jobs and I wanted to do that. But if I couldn’t do it [with WWE], then I’d have to do it somewhere else. It just so happened that AEW needs a Mark Henry – somebody that wants to be an executive, wants to work behind the scenes and build the brand and have an imprint on the business."
