Mark Henry Comments On The "Silverback" Nickname WWE Tried To Give Him
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.18.2014



In an interview with The Huffington Post, Mark Henry spoke about WWE attempting to give him the nickname "Silverback" in 2007, a reference to the silverback gorilla. It was quickly phased out.

On the "Silverback" nickname: "A lot of people remember the Silverback thing. Honestly, I could not do it. I told them: 'I can't do that. I got two little black kids at home.'"

On the WWE not being racist: "Black culture, we dance and sing. We're entertainers. James Brown said it best: the things we are make people want to be like us."

You can find the entire show, which also features comments from Koko B. Ware, here.
