Up next, Mark Henry is here tonight.
Mark Henry comes out and stands on the stage.
Henry: My name is Mark Henry, and i'm known as the strongest man in the world. And I didn't get that name out of some Crackerjack Box either. I earned it. I earned it cause out of every other kid I was the strongest kid. When I was in Texas breaking world records, I represented the Olympics in 1992. I legitimately retained that status ever since I entered the WWE 17 years ago. I earned the respect of everyone I worked with. But out of this environment comes jealousy. Politics. And a lot of backstabbing. There's a lot of "accidental" injuries. All these many years i've earned it. They...never gave me a legitimate opportunity to be WWE Champion. All the thousands of miles I traveled. All the nights I spent away from my family. All the years that I pretended that I liked the boys. All the years of doing the right thing. Doing the right thing for the business. Well that got me nowhere! Damn it, I deserve to be WWE Champion!
Henry: After all the years that i've given o this organization. All the things and all the time I gave to you people, I earned the right to be WWE Champion. Like I said before, you hang on every single word I say. You're just a bunch of puppets. At the Money in the Bank pay per view, now that I finally have my chance, nobody's going to keep me down anymore. I'm going to do the right thing alright. I'm going to do the right thing for me. And after I beat John Cena, nobody in the world will be able to deny me. All you people, you're going to say "God! That Mark Henry, he EARNED that WWE Championship!" Yeah, you're going to say it. But I want this camera right in my face. I want this to sink in clear. John Cena...at Money in the Bank, i'm going to beat your ass!
Henry heads to the back.
We meet Brad and Vickie backstage watching Henry.
Brad: I wouldn't want to be Cena right about now.
Vickie: No I wouldn't-
Vince McMahon walks in
Vickie: Vince! How are you doing?
Vince: I'm having a blast! Did you see Daniel Bryan out there?
Vickie: Yes I did.
Vince glares at her.
Vince: What did I tell you about Daniel Bryan last week? What did I tell you?
Vickie: That he's small...and has issues.
Vince: So you're not listening to me, are you? I'll tell you this, that main event tonight. That's awesome. Champion versus champion.
Vickie: That was my idea!
Vince: I'm sure it was
Vickie: And your other family members enjoyed it too
Vince: Right, but they don't understand. Just like you don't understand. This is a great match, but you're throwing money away. That match should be on pay per view. You give it away! You give it away for free! Because you don't understand business. That's all. Good business. There's a list a mile long of people excommunicated, fired, or thrown out of my building by me because they wouldn't listen or do what I say. Enjoy the rest of your evening.
