Mark Henry(c) vs. The Big Show for the World Heavyweight Championship:
What I Liked:
Whether you like it or not, these two super heavyweights put on a solid bout. It was a slugfest and brawl for a while, but they were not slow and boring. The match took a few minutes to garner some steam, but Henry really showed he is deserving of holding the World Title. I continue to be impressed with his dedication, willingness to adapt to situations, and continued focus on becoming better. The Big Show looked good as well, especially with the elbow drop from the top rope. You wonder what they were going to do, and this was a fantastic spot, one we rarely, if ever, have seen before. The aftermath of the match was good as well, having this feud come full circle.
What I Disliked:
The DQ finish, as I feel there needed to be some sort of closure of the feud. They will get one more match, but I feel like they need to add other superstars in the mix to keep Show/Henry from being repetitive. Make TLC a Fatal Four Way, with a Tables Match. I really do like this feud, but there needs to be other guys to fasten the pace, to sprinkle in athleticism from time to time, and to further help Henry progress as a champion.
We get an entertaining backstage segment involving Barrett. Miz, and Truth. Barrett discusses about being a winner, but Awesome Truth interrupt. Truth says a funny line about pigeons that really went over well with the crowd. They tried to get the spotlight on them, and away from the Rock and Cena….like that's possible. Good try. Grade: B-
