A lot has changed recently on the blue brand.
It took Mark Henry 15 years to finally get to the top of the mountain, and for old-school fans, it's definitely a very gratifying sight to see The World's Strongest Man finally hold the strap. He's put in his time and his effort for as long as any wrestler in the WWE today, and he deserves to finally get his chance to shine.
However, even though his victory was a shocker, things might end up becoming very predictable very quickly on Smackdown. A future icon like Randy Orton will have his title back in no time if the WWE creative team goes the obvious route with this. Many people still believe that Henry's current title run is simply just a way for the WWE to thank him for all of his hard work over the years, and considering Mark Henry's age, it seems like his time at the top will be very short-lived.
Christian was right, too, I really can't see Henry on a billboard highlighting an event. He's a little too past his prime for that.
Still, you can't deny Henry's domination right now. I just hope the WWE is smart and doesn't ruin this truly exciting time on Smackdown. This is the time to really turn things up a notch.
In my opinion, this is the first time in a while that Friday nights have been this awesome. They can throw Sheamus and Christian into the mix, but that's boring. Let those two feud for a while. I don't know about you, but I want to see some more change on Friday nights. Time to try some new things and push some new stars.
Here's a few ways that the exciting WWE WHC scene can be even better.
