Mark Henry told TMZ Sports that if Rush had reached out to him privately, he would have had no problem playing up the issues to help Lio get some exposure, but now, Mark Henry says that Lio Rush is trying to “pull his black card” and Henry will have none of it.

"If he would've called me, I would've done it anyway. We would've just worked it. I would have really talked it up, we would have made world news, but now he said something slanderous and, you can't question my blackness. Like nobody can question my blackness, pull my black card. No, not allowed. Nobody," Henry said

Lio Rush had recently tweeted about the negative experience he had in WWE with Mark Henry and would go on to suggest that African American talent will continue to be held down in WWE.

Following the TMZ release, Rush mentioned on Twitter that he feels he could counter sue for public defamation. Henry would fire back that Rush defamed himself, leading to a brief back-and-forth.
