Mark Henry is on the warpath.

Henry is a behemoth of a man who over the past few weeks has absolutely been destroying any one that has got in his way.

In the past two weeks, he has attacked Sheamus and Randy Orton. He went after Sheamus after losing his match against him on August 26th. Then he came out to beat on The Viper after he beat Christian to defend his title.

Henry will do anything to get the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. The most telling sign of that is that after his beat down of Randy Orton, "The World's Strongest Man" grabbed the World Heavyweight Title and held it over his own head.

Such an act of disrespect can only mean one thing, Henry will not stop until the title is his. The only thing remaining is whether that will be at the Night of Champions or tonight.

There is a good chance that there will be another attack on Randy Orton tonight, backstage or in the ring. "The World's Strongest Man" will be looking for Orton. Whether it is in the ring or not is the only thing that is up for debate.

Orton will need to be at full strength to take on Henry, if there is another attack. Orton was absolutely pummeled by Henry last week. Unless Orton can find some back up, the result will likely be the same.

The Viper needs to keep his head on a swivel tonight, because Henry is looking for blood and won't stop until that title is permanently his.
