The new movie about NWA has caused a good amount of debates and some controversy. Mark Henry decided to add on to that. The former world heavyweight champion stated that he was boycotting USA Today because of an ignorant article that was written. He was not specific, so fans are left to guess which one pissed him off. For those that don't know, Henry was a big part of the racial controversy in WWE not too long ago.

While controversy does create cash, the belief is that Bill DeMott will choose the safe route more frequently when it comes to picking guests for his upcoming weekly podcast interview show. The former head trainer in WWE will most likely go with performers who have publicly and privately backed him up against the abuse allegations. Doing that would help repair his reputation a little bit.

That would generate quite the interest for the new show.

Since the two of them have not been able to get along very well over the past couple of years, it should come as no surprise that Scott Steiner would be jumping all over the Hulk Hogan controversy.
