Mark Henry Says Baron Corbin Has Opportunity To Become An Icon

WWE legend Mark Henry has given his thoughts on last night’s announcement, in which Kurt Angle revealed that he’ll be facing Baron Corbin at WrestleMania in his farewell match. Henry, whilst speaking with SiriusXM, claimed that former NXT stand-out Corbin has the potential to become an icon by defeating Kurt on the grandest stage of them all.

“Steve Austin was Steve Austin, but Steve Austin really became Steve Austin after he got his neck broke. He rose to the occasion after he came back, and did the whole Austin 3:16 thing. He had to have a moment that was created for him, and that is what Baron Corbin is gonna have in this opportunity. He has an opportunity to create just like Steve did [at WrestleMania 13 vs Bret Hart] to make himself somebody that is bigger than life. Steve Austin was above average. He was good. But he became an icon afterwards, and I think that Baron Corbin has the opportunity to become an icon by beating an icon.”
