AEW’s Mark Henry: Ethan Page & Ricky Starks Are Special
Henry thinks All Ego and Absolute have the IT factor
AEW’s roster is a pretty stacked place, a mixture of former indie darlings, WWE legends, up-and-comers, and icons of this business. But out of everyone, Mark Henry has singled out Ethan Page and Ricky Starks for specific praise.
Speaking to the Dallas Morning News, Henry had this to say about All Ego and Absolute:
"Man, Ethan Page. All Ego. The dude is something else. Ricky Starks. I mean, Ricky, he’s been injured, he comes back one week and just murders the screen, just kills it. The Brian Cages of the world, the Darby Allins, the Britt Bakers – I didn’t even mention the [Young] Bucks or Kenny [Omega], the people that are fixtures on the show. You asked me about who struck me. Ethan Page and Ricky Starks, they special.”
Henry is also a fan of Darby Allin and Team Taz’s Powerhouse Will Hobbs;
"Darby Allin, a lot of stuff outside of wrestling," Henry continue. "Will Hobbs, in wrestling. He had a match with [Adam] Page two weeks ago that was the best match he’s ever had. All of the big guys, I want them to concentrate and focus on being big guys. There’s a negative stigmatism to being big in wrestling – you’re not athletic, you can’t move, you can’t flip or fly. There’s a place for it if you’re the big guy, and it’s my job to teach them and give them the understanding. All of them know how, but my expertise is when and why?”
