"The World's Strongest Man" Mark Henry has lashed out at the fans who have been mocking WWE legends Goldberg and the Undertaker via social media.
The pair came under much criticism for their botched match at Friday's Super ShowDown, with Goldberg having accidentally smashed headfirst into a ring post and later revealing he was knocked out. There were a few other poorly executed moves during the match.
There has been concern from fans over the veterans' wellbeing and ability to perform in-ring at this stage of their careers. But others have flat out ridiculed the two stars, much to the disappointment of Henry.
“Goldberg deserves the respect that he’s earned," the former wrestler said on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio recently (transcribed by Sescoops). "The guy went in and busted his face open. He finished that match. How about saying ‘thank you for not tapping out?’”
"They deserved better than that!"@TheMarkHenry has some choice words for social media users with "Twitter fingers" trying to tear down the legacies of @undertaker & @Goldberg #WWESSD pic.twitter.com/bdOJtNQB8D— SiriusXM Busted Open (@BustedOpenRadio) June 11, 2019
“He could have easily said ‘Hey man, I can’t see, I rung my bell.’ And they went into a series of Choke Slams and one, two, three, and it’s over. Could have done that. Didn’t do it. They went through it for you.”
Henry went on to criticize the physical ability of the "Twitter fingers" mocking the two wrestlers. We can't be certain how he's informed on fan fitness levels but maybe he knows something we don't.
“The twitter fingers, the people that probably can’t run a mile in under a day," he continued. "The people that can’t lift their own body weight, do one pull up. People that don’t have any belief in nothing beyond their own nose.
"Those are the people that came on social media and berated the Undertaker and Goldberg, when it was a travesty to the wrestling business because they deserved better than that. They deserved better than that. And anybody that sent a tweet like that, you should be ashamed of yourself.”
