— Mark Henry’s knees went out in a match against Big Show on January 24th in Tucson, Arizona. The belief is that Henry’s body was overcompensating because of the groin injury and that he shouldn’t have been in the ring.
According to a script from the SmackDown show, Daniel Bryan was supposed to run-in when Mark Henry was down and take out Big Show with a chair, like he did. Show was supposed to come back and chokeslam him with Henry then laying out Bryan with a splash. Henry was in so much pain he couldn’t get up and splash Bryan.
