WWE Superstar Mark Henry recently spoke with Esquire Middle East to promote the release of WWE 2K17 and more. You can check out the full interview here along with some highlights below.

If there’s a more jovial “millennial” atmosphere backstage nowadays: It is to an extent, there’s the ‘Up,Up,Down,Down‘ crew (Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston etc) they are hard workers but are also adamant about playing videogames. They play combat games, they play sports games like soccer. But one of things is that whenever a new WWE2k wrestling game comes out they are all over it. I’m not going to say that there’s some gambling going on, but there is plenty of betting! Money doesn’t change hands but there are plenty of people doing 100 push-ups for losing.

Worst dressed superstar in WWE: “Big E Langston. He looks like a sausage-man with his tight sweatsuits and tennis shoes. I’m begging him to buy a suit!”

Which stars he wants to work with: “Neville. I love his skill set. I want him to do better in the company. I also love working with Cesaro. I think he is under-utilized on the roster, but I don’t make the decisions! I remember when we wrestled in Qatar, he was even able to get me in the Big Swing. I didn’t think he was gonna be able to lift me, but he did.”
