Mark Henry On Randy Orton Vs. AJ Styles: "This Is Not A Filler Match. This Is A Main Event Match."

Quote:
Earlier this week it was announced Randy Orton and AJ Styles will meet in the ring at WrestleMania 35 on April 7. On Busted Open, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry spoke about the match and considers it to be in the running as a main event match and shouldn't be looked at as "filler."

"This is one of those matches that people look at and go, 'it's not filler,'" Henry said. "These are both stars, both guys have been champion multiple times and as much as we want to see Daniel Bryan and Kofi in the main event, we want to see what's gonna happen with Charlotte, Becky, and Ronda as a main event, or Seth Rollins and Brock as a main event. [AJ Styles vs. Randy Orton] is a main event match! It's a main event match, guys!"

Henry spoke highly of both wrestlers, noting that Orton is making his way into the top 10 or 15 best wrestlers of all-time. For Styles, he's proven that he can perform at a high level no matter what company he's worked for and Henry considered him among the elite to hold the title in WWE.

"Randy Orton, in my opinion, he's not on Mount Rushmore yet, but he's slowly entering that top 15 or top 10 of all-time," Henry continued. "He is that damn good and then AJ Styles, from the time he was an indie guy, worked his way up, worked down south, to now coming to the WWE. He did everything at every level that there is to do and he has become an elite champion. Not just a champion, but one of the guy that can carry the load, and he has carried it for the last two years. So why wouldn't this be in the conversation as a main event match at WrestleMania?"

All time favorites:
1. Randy Orton
2. The Rock
3. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin
4. Brock Lesnar
5. Undertaker

Praise be I'm glad he thinks highly of AJ as an Elite superstar internationally and in the WWE, As for Orton being in the top 10 he's well accomplished and it's fairly arguable placing him in the top 15 or perhaps 20 but not top 10.

Well, it definitely does feel like the biggest match coming from SmackDown, so Henry's not wrong. Two of the best in-ring workers in the world and two main-event stars.

A fresh match up between two of WWE's biggest stars isn't filler, thanks for the special insight, Mark

I'm really invested on seeing this match.

Well, on paper, sometimes whether it's what they have or not, sometimes, you just have The Undertaker vs. Triple H at WrestleMania 17, it wasn't the most built long-term feud, a must see workrate-centric match or anything like that, it was just two stars who landed where the cards did and still added up to a WrestleMania match. Sometimes all it takes is just two stars facing off and that's what you get. That's what this will be for WrestleMania 35 and that's okay!

He lost any credibility he might have had when he said Randy Orton is top 10 or 15 of all time.

I'm still yet to figure out why anybody wants to see this match. Randy Orton has never had a great match, and AJ Styles has only had 1 or 2. Especially recently, he's lost a step and his performances consistently disappoint. I guess if you think just performing moves smootly with zero flow is a great match, but I expect a structure. Given Henrys ability, I guess I shouldn't be surprised why he's so high on Styles and Orton, comparing them to himself.

Did you watch their promo on SD? Given the guys involved, it was A LOT better than you would expect. I actually kinda care now, and I usually find both dull as shit.

I hadn't, but I heard about it, and just watched it, and I feel like you just stole 5 minutes of my life from me that I want back. It wasn't better than I expected. I expected it to suck, and it sucked. Both of these fuckers are duller than white paint and I still don't care. They both need a personality transplant.

Neither the promos nor the in ring work, nor probably anything that these two could conjure up is going to get me to give a single fuck.

It baffles me every day how wrestling has come to THIS. Wrestling used to have personality. Where did we go so wrong to end up in a place where THIS is acceptable?
