Former World champion and current WWE producer Mark Henry is considering legal action against recently-released performer Lio Rush, following a series of tweets sent out by the former Cruiserweight champion, according to TMZ.
Rush tweeted several allegations about Henry as an administrator, saying in one posted Thursday, "This is why African American talent on the biggest platform will continue to not have equal opportunity because people like you constantly tear your own people down. A damn shame honestly.”
Amid the tweets, Henry tweeted Rush a phone number to reach him at, and Rush responded, "This number isn’t working. Unless you forgot to pay the bill. Maybe you need to budget your money a bit better."
Rush wrote several other tweets on Thursday that spoke of his past dealings with Henry, including one pertaining to Henry reportedly burying Rush on his podcast.
Henry fired back in a video posted to TMZ Sunday, saying in part, "If you go down to the Performance Center at NXT, probably 25 I think, people of color in the facility, probably about 80 plus percent of them I helped get them there. I mean, it's completely opposite."
Henry believes that Rush's comments are simply to draw attention to his music career, and maintains that the former WWE talent needs to apologize.
"My lawyer went to Harvard. I don't know what kinda lawyers he's dealing with, but I got those Ivy League people around me, and they're pissed! But, there is one thing Lio Rush can do before he finds his ass in a courtroom: say sorry, and really mean it. He needs to apologize."
