Winner: Mark Henry
Booker says Ryback was worried about the panel, but should have been worried about Mark Henry, who’s back. Matthews shifts the focus to the World Heavyweight Championship match. Hart says that Del Rio is cunning and dangerous, and if he gets Cena’s arm, it could be game over. Foley says it often comes down to heart and will, and it might come down to the support from Cena’s hometown fans, which might not be with him. Booker says we’ll find out if Del Rio can pull out the win tonight.
We get a recap of last month’s match between Cena and Del Rio, where Cena returned to win the World Heavyweight Championship, and the events that have taken place over the last couple of weeks of Cena’s reign.
