Update on Potential WWE Tag Team

WWE Big ShowEarlier tonight we reported that WWE scrapped a planned backstage segment with Big Show and Mark Henry, that would have cemented the two as a tag team at SummerSlam this weekend. However, it appears that WWE has not completely pulled the plug on the idea, because Big Show and Mark Henry appeared backstage together on tonight’s episode of Main Event. During the final match of the night, Show faced Eric Rowan in singles action, and the World’s Strongest Man was ringside to cheer on his friend and potential partner, leading to a win for the big man. 

KILLAM: As we’ve seen with a few other gimmicks, Main Event seems to be the training ground for the main roster stars when trying something new. This may be an indication of a future tag team for Big Show and Henry, or it could amount to nothing, much like the Big E, Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston trio. 

Another Smackdown Match Announced

Seth Rollins vs. Jack Swagger will take place this Friday night on WWE Smackdown. The match was announced on Main Event tonight, in addition to the singles match between Randy Orton and Rob Van Dam scheduled to take place. Wrestlezone will have complete spoiler coverage of Smackdown later on this evening.
