Now, we get our first match of the evening, Randy Orton vs. Mark Henry.
Last Friday, Orton beat Kane in a No Disqualification match. How will he fare against the "World Strongest Man" Mark Henry?
Speaking of which, he's been busy over the past couple of weeks, and he's done a very good job in the ring. We get an announcement that Henry will fight CM Punk this Monday for the WWE Championship. It will be no disqualification and no countout.
We start off with Henry throwing him into the turnbuckle, but we get some good back-and-forth action. However, Henry stops him with a headbutt.
Some more throwing against the turnbuckle, but Orton dodges.
Randy Orton goes for the 10-count punch and gets in a couple shots, but Henry stops hm and slams him to the mat.
We see Randy's father, "Cowboy" Bob Orton watching the match on a television backstage, as we cut to commercial.
The show is back on as Orton powers out of a submission applies by Mark Henry. I spy a sign that says "Raven is the worst."
Henry applies yet another submission onto Orton, and he punches out. Headbutt and a scoop slam by the "World's Strongest Slam." And now a splash. Henry goes for the cover but only gets two.
Mark Henry puts him into the turnbuckles, gives him a couple shoulder thrusts and follows that up with a big clothesline. He then hits Orton with a second clothesline, and he falls to the mat.
Mark Henry goes for another splash, but Randy Orton gets out of the way. Orton, now trying to clothesline him, stomps him on his foot. Mark Henry falls to one knee, and Orton gives him a DDT.
Henry, now on the apron, gives him kicks, but he gets out of it.
Mark Henry, about to deliver a World Strongest Slam, but Randy Orton counters it. Orton's now going to give him a RKO, but Henry pushes him out of it, and he falls out of the ring. They brawl a little, and Orton hits Henry against the steel post.
Randy Orton climbs back into the ring, and it looks like he's about to win by countout. But the pyro goes off at the ramp, and you know what that means! Kane is here! The question is, where?
We find Kane on the TitanTron. He tells him how he beat him at WrestleMania but also how Orton can be a savage, as he showed on Friday. Kane says he's having too much fun to let their feud stop, and we find that he took out Randy's father.
Orton goes backstage, looking for his father. He eventually finds him, but Kane hits him with a pipe, once to the gut and then once to the bank. For whatever reasons, Orton holds his head.
This was a short but a decent match. Though not near the quality he put against Punk, Mark Henry did a decent job in the ring.
What's more is that the Orton/Kane feud lives on. What I thought what a quick, garbage feud, is actually developing pretty nicely. It will be interesting to see what happens as we get closer to the Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
