This one was let out of the bag earlier in the week when Ryback did an interview with Boston media, letting them know what he’d be issuing at the PPV.
It was further let out of the bag when reports trickled in that Mark Henry was spotted on the same Boston-bound flight as other WWE staff.
So, with Ryback issuing the challenge, indeed it was Mark Henry who accepted.
It would have been really nice to see Henry just absolutely destroy Ryback in his return, but the big man had to put in at least a bit of work on the evening. The end result was the same though, with Henry fairly dominant in his returning victory. It would be nice to see the veteran getting a nice face run and a taste of WWE gold, though with the current authority angle, I can’t say I see it making sense.
