Mark Henry Says Seth Rollins Is Elite, Will Be Talked About 'For The Next 150 Years'

Between his WWE Hall of Fame career, which includes a run as WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and his current employment with AEW, Mark Henry is a man that knows all about what it takes to be elite. And one talent Henry feels fits the bill is WWE Superstar Seth Rollins.

On the latest episode of "Busted Open Radio," Henry had nothing but positive things to say regarding Rollins' performance with Omos this past Saturday at WWE Backlash. And Henry wasn't just high on Rollins either, as he showered Omos with his fair shares of accolades, too — including feeling that his loss to Rollins helped more than it hurt.

"He won because he got over ... You don't always have to go over to get over. Omos won. He got experience by being in the ring with an elite pro wrestling talent," Henry remarked, "someone people will talk about for the next 150 years. And I knew that match was going to be great because Seth Rollins brings out the best in the people that he works with. 

"And he had a lot to work with. Omos is going to be really, really good in the up and coming years," Henry continued. "He's young, he's hungry, he's changing his body, and his gear is better. Everything that you see Omos — MVP being with him — everything works."

While Omos' next step is unknown, Rollins will now be looking to add the WWE World Heavyweight Championship to his resume, as he is 1 of 12 WWE stars entered into the tournament to crown the new champion. The tournament will kick off tonight on "WWE Raw."
