Two weeks ago, “the World’s Strongest Man” made his return and wasted little time in re-establishing his dominance in World Wrestling Entertainment, flattening Rey Mysterio, Sin Cara and Daniel Bryan in one fell swoop of rage.
The Great Khali, Hornswoggle and Randy Orton have also felt his wrath, and now, he prepares to enter the Elimination Chamber, where five potential victims await him.
There are a number of questions surrounding Mark Henry as he anticipates his entry into the Elimination Chamber, the most intriguing of which is whether or not he can sustain the momentum he has currently if he loses on Sunday.
There have been very noticeable pops for the former world champion since returning to WWE television. Can he sustain the fan interest if he looks any less dominant than he has of late by losing inside the Chamber?
What about his stamina? Considering the fact that Henry lost a year of his career to injury and has only competed in three matches since returning, there is undoubtedly ring rust that must be worked off before he gets back to the level of performances we saw from him a year ago.
With so much star power in the No. 1 contender’s Elimination Chamber match, there is a likelihood, no matter how large, that Henry will square off with his WrestleMania 29 opponent.
Could it be Chris Jericho, who has been on a tremendous roll since his return at the Royal Rumble? How about Randy Orton, who has a history with the “World’s Strongest Man”?
Perhaps, Kane and Daniel Bryan would have gone their separate ways by the time WrestleMania rolls around, therefore, would be available to take on Henry in a singles match.
Whatever the case may be, it is safe to say that the direction Henry takes on the road to WrestleMania will likely become clearer by the time Sunday’s Elimination Chamber match wraps up.
