Mark Henry Threatens To Sue Lio Rush For Slander

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.

Rush dug up the past with this tweet on Thursday:

“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.

“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:
