Mark Henry puts over Rusev: He will hold true for the next 10 to 15 years

From his interview with the Miami Herald:

"He is respectful. He is a really good listener. He is going to be a guy who holds true for the next 10 or 15 years. Hopefully, his body holds up, and he doesn't have as many injuries as I did. I know what talent looks like and who has got it. Those are the people I want to work with and against. I'm happy to be able to say I had a hand in making some moments for him in his career."

High praise from Mark Henry, one of the longest tenured wrestlers on the WWE roster, even if that time was marked with repeated injuries and failed pushes. He doesn't shy away from nodding to that, however, and it's difficult to disagree with his assessment that a healthy Rusev could be a major star for the promotion for the next 10 to 15 years.

He's certainly being positioned as such right now.

Anyone care to disagree with Henry? If so, why?
