Lio Rush and Mark Henry have taken their heat to social media.
The former WWE stars crossed paths on Twitter earlier this week, leading to revelations that the two have heat from comments that Henry made a year ago.
This was from a time when Rush had heat in WWE, and Henry claimed on his podcast that he offered to help the troubled star, but was lied to.
Rush dug up the past with this tweet on Thursday:
Woke up remembering the time Mark Henry said I lied to him to his face & then continued to bury me on his podcast while telling me i need to learn how to spend my money better. Shit was crazy. Sorry man, i didn’t mean to have a wife and two kids on top of other responsibilities.

After more back and forth on Twitter, Henry turned to TMZ to address the situation, saying he wants an apology from Rush and is threatening legal action for slander.
“If you go down to the performance center at NXT, probably 25 I think, people of color in the facility, probably about 80 plus percent of them I helped get them there. I mean, it’s completely opposite.”
“He knew that I get a lot of attention. I have a lot of followers and he released the album, or song, or something, and he wanted to use that to get some attention. Get some buzz,” Henry says.
“If he would’ve called me, I would’ve done it anyway. We would’ve just worked it. I would of really talked it up, we would of 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.”
“My lawyer went to Harvard. I don’t know what kinda lawyers he’s dealing with, but I got those Ivy League people around me, and they’re pissed!”
“He needs to apologize.”
Rush responded via Twitter again on Sunday with the following:
One more thing if you don’t mind @TheMarkHenry , good for you for getting that 80% hired. I wasn’t one of them though, so i owe you NOTHING. You weren’t signing my checks, nor did I work for you. I DONT EVEN KNOW YOU. Stop being weird. I was taught not to talk to strangers.
