Mark Henry & Al Snow Give Their Respective Thoughts on Ronda Rousey's Future in WWE
Posted By: Caylon Knox on Feb 18, 2018
Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry and former WWE European Champion, Tag Team Champion, and Hardcore Champion Al Snow both recently gave their respective thoughts on Ronda Rousey's future in WWE and what she'll have to do to succeed.
“I’m hopeful that Ronda will make the necessary moves to go in and integrate into the locker room peacefully. It’s going to be good for everybody to have her on a card, and they have to find a common ground. You cannot have a lot of animosities built up and start to turn the fans against the people working with you. I think that’s poor business. I think it they all have to come to an agreement. It might be one of those locker room moments where you go ‘hey guys, can I talk to you all for a second?’ and some people might go ‘go throw yourself off a bridge’ and won’t come. For the most part, I think you can pull together an audience to get your point across.”
On what Rousey should do:
“I think she should try to babyface everyone. She should go in there, be nice and try to be respectful until someone makes her not nice. At least give everybody the benefit of the doubt and say ‘hey, I don’t know everything, and I’m gonna be looking on everybody to teach me some stuff. Please, I want to be a major player, and I want to help everybody along, but I need to be helped in order for that to happen.'”
On why Rousey is off to the right start as a wrestler:
“She’s good looking. She can fight. People care about what she has to say, and I think she’s a better than average talker already. If you don’t know who Ronda Rousey is, you got to be somebody who has had their head under a rock for the past 3-4 years. She’s as mainstream in sports as anybody.”
On Rousey’s connection to the business:
“She’s got lineage with two people in our industry: Judo Gene LeBell and Roddy Piper. Judo Gene trained both of them. Man, that’s just an unbelievable thing to have a legacy already, which I didn’t have. She’s already up on the game as far as our concern.”
"It takes a very special person to work the opposite. If she's capable of taking the charisma she had in MMA, she'll need ten times the charisma in the WWE.
"I trained mixed martial artists King Mo and Dan Severn. Both will tell you [like] King Mo, 'I don't know how these guys do it. I would rather much prepare for a fight than train pro wrestling because physically there's much more demand'."
