AEW has announced Mark Henry has signed a multi-year deal with the company and will be an analyst for Rampage when it premieres on TNT this August.
AEW President Tony Khan revealed that a top star will be joining Henry on commentary for the show while talking with the media after Double or Nothing (via Wrestling Inc).
“I’m not necessarily gonna say he’s going to be the play-by-play or color analyst, but he’s going to be a big part of the show. I have a big announcement. I don’t want to sound like it’s going to be an outside person. It’s somebody who’s one of our top stars that will be on commentary on the show. He’s a great commentator, and a great wrestler, that might narrow it down, but I’m going to put him on commentary. It will be live on August 13 for the premiere on Friday the 13th. It’s going to be a huge episode. It will be live to start, and I’ve got a lot of live episodes planned. There may be times where we do it as a classic kind of wrestling taping where there will be shows on Wednesday maybe, but it’s going to be live to start.“
