Report: Why WWE Booked World Title Switch At TLC PPV

Nick Paglino

Mark HenryProWrestling.net is reporting that the reason why WWE decided to book the World Title switch at tonight's TLC PPV is because Mark Henry is legitimately hurt.

According to the report, Henry suffered what's being described as a pull in the groin area, which he reportedly suffered during his match against John Cena on Raw this past Monday night. After having the injury evaluated, it turned out to be more serious than originally thought.

It's being said that a majority of the creative team wanted to allow Henry to work a lighter schedule in order to let the injury heal, however Vince McMahon was said to be less sympathetic and decided to book the title switch at TLC tonight.
