AEW CEO Tony Khan has heaped praise on new signing Mark Henry.
Henry was unveiled as the newest member of the All Elite Wrestling team at Sunday's Double Or Nothing pay-per-view, with the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion serving as a coach and a member of the commentary team for AEW Rampage, which debuts on August 13.
Khan is delighted to welcome Henry to AEW and believes the 49-year-old will prove to be a smart addition to the roster.
Speaking the post-AEW Double Or Nothing media scrum, Khan said: "Mark Henry and I are friends. Mark told me he was available and to do things that I would be really interested in doing. I thought that would be really interesting because he's not only a good friend but a really respected person in the wrestling business. A great wrestler, a great mind, a great scout, and a great analyst in wrestling.
"He gives his opinions on the radio, but he provides great scouting reports and he really has helped mentor a lot of wrestlers in addition to being a great wrestling mind. I think he could be not only a great on-air personality but a great backstage influence. He's a great friend and person, so it's just great to have Mark in the AEW family, and it was great to announce it on such a special show."
