Mark Henry vs CM Punk

Henry shoves Punk in the corner, then Punk tries to kick him in the legs but Henry catches his leg then chokes him. Punk breaks his grip and hits a few dropkicks, but Henry comes back with some rib shots and stomps to the back by the ropes. Henry steps on Punk's midsection and drops him with a clothesline for a two count, then Henry puts Punk in the corner and throws a few kidney punches. He headbutts Punk and walks towards him, and Punk tries to fight back with some quick strikes but Henry puts him in a bear hug. Punk breaks the hold with a swinging DDT for a two count, then Punk kicks him in the chest and drops him with a running knee smash for another near fall.

Punk climbs the turnbuckles and leaps at Henry, but Henry catches him and throws him in the corner, then tries to follow it by going for a middle rope bomb. Punk rolls away and strikes Henry, then he avoids another bomb and goes for a springboard elbow but Henry clotheslines him on the way down. We get back after a commercial with Punk on the top turnbuckle, and he leaps at Henry but ends up getting kicked in the ribs on the way down. Henry chokes him near the ropes then he puts him in a nerve hold, and Punk breaks it up with a jawbreaker but Henry whips him back into the corner.

Punk avoids a corner splash and chops the hell out of Henry, then he drops him with a kick to the face and climbs to the top turnbuckle. Punk hits a top rope elbow drop but injures himself on the way down, and he struggles to get up but he surprises Henry with a running knee smash. He hits another high knee smash and goes for a bulldog, but Henry scoops him up and throws him out of the ring. The referee starts a count as Henry falls to the mat, and Punk tries to climb back in the ring but he is unable to make the ten count. Henry gets pissed about the result and goes out to get Punk, and he hits a World's Strongest Slam on the floor before leaving. (Cont'd…)
