As the clip began to circulate on Twitter, numerous WWE and AEW stars offered their congratulations to the young athlete.
New AEW signee Paul Wight posted that “The Hall Of Pain reopened under new management” while Xavier Woods aka Austin Creed responded in with a gif. Lance Storm offered typically analytical advice, commenting that “He’s got some legs and hips. That’s a powerful base. He’s going to be a handful on the mat.”
Meanwhile, the founder of the Hall Of Pain, Henry Sr, has recently revealed that he is hoping to wrestle again within the next six months. Following WrestleMania 33 Mark Henry had appeared to move away from in-ring competition transitioning into a backstage role, however, he has continued to make occasional appearances all the way up to Raw Legends Night in January 2021, where he had a run-in with Randy Orton.
