Chris Jericho Apologized To Mark Henry For His Time Being Cut For AEW Debut At AEW Double Or Nothing 2021

Mark Henry made his AEW debut at AEW Double or Nothing 2021, coming out and briefly greeting the crowd before heading to the backstage area.

Tony Schiavone previously revealed that Henry was supposed to have a five-minute interview segment, but things were cut short as the show was running long.

Speaking on the AEW-some podcast, Chris Jericho revealed that he apologized to Henry for his time being cut short and that they needed to save time in order to get everything in for the Stadium Stampede match between Inner Circle and The Pinnacle.

"That was the debut of Mark Henry that night. He came out and literally had 30 seconds. As a pro, he was mad, but as a vet, he knew that's what he had to do to save that time. Kudos to Mark. I remember apologizing to him, 'this is not how things work here. We apologize that you had to make the sacrifice.' He got a longer segment on Dynamite, so it all worked out," said Jericho.

Jericho and the Inner Circle (Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana & Ortiz) defeated The Pinnacle (Cash Wheeler, Dax Harwood, MJF, Shawn Spears & Wardlow) in the Stadium Stampede bout to close AEW Double or Nothing 2021.

Elsewhere during the podcast, Jericho revealed he was set for a cinematic match against Mike Tyson, but plans fell through. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
