As expected, Mark Henry made his return to WWE on Saturday night at the live event from Madison Square Garden in New York City. During the main event, Henry returned as one of Ric Flair’s lumberjacks for the John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt main event. Triple H also had his own lumberjacks to back up Bray Wyatt. Basically, Flair and his lumberjacks were in the corner of John Cena while Triple H and his lumberjacks were in the corner of Bray Wyatt.
During the main event, Henry turned heel and threw Cena into the ring post. Towards the end of the match (Cena defeated Wyatt), Flair and Bray got into it and Wyatt was busted open and bleeding badly. As he headed towards the back after the match, his entire face was covered in blood. Despite the injury, Bray is NOT expected to miss any in-ring time. A few stitches and he’ll be good to go!
Here is a report from the WWE-MSG main event. A full report from the entire show is posted on the main newsboard.
John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt. The Lumberjacks were everyone who worked the show plus Mark Henry, Great Khali and Titus O’Neill, so there were 16 total (8 for Flair and 8 for Triple H). No Rusev. Triple H and Ric Flair each had their own entrance. HHH tried to cut a promo but Flair took the mic and that led to them grabbing the mic from each other until Bray’s entrance began. They went back and forth battling. When Cena was tossed to the outside, the heel lumberjacks all put the boots to him. Bray did it again and Cena had the boots put to him before they tossed him back in. Bray drilled Cena with a DDT for a two count. Cena mounted a comeback but was caught In a sleeper. The loudest reaction all night was the back and forth chants for Cena during this sequence. Cena fought him off and nailed a tornado DDT off the ropes. He backdropped Bray over the ropes and the faces all worked him over. Wyatt was tossed back in the ring and Cena did all his standards but was freaked out by the Wyatt Spider Walk. Bray nailed an Avalanche one the corner and went for Sister Abigail but Cena escaped and went for the AA. Wyatt caught him with a Urange for a two count. Wyatt tossed him out where Henry caught him and out him back in. Cena was nailed with a back sentom splash for a two count. Wyatt attempted a Superplex. Cena slipped down and nailed a sitdown powerbomb but was pulled out by the heels before he could score the pin. The heels attacked him and faced off with the faces. There was a huge brawl. Cena did a dive off the top onto the Lumberjacks. They brawled to the back. Cena went to grab Wyatt but HHH kicked him and nailed a Pedigree. He told Wyatt to make the cover but Flair rolled in and kicked Wyatt low. Flair and Bray faced off. Flair peppered him with punches including a stiff one that busted Bray open above the eyebrow, which began bleeding. He chopped Bray but was taken down with a punch. HHH instructed Bray to pin Cena so he went for Sister Abigail but Cena turned it into an STF and scored the submission. Fun main event with both guys working super hard despite their insane travel the last 24 hours.
Notes: Byron Saxton was the ring announcer and did a fine job. Why they never use Howard Finkel here is beyond me. It would add something unique and special and Fink was the best of all time, but that’s just me….They were selling new shirts for Bray Wyatt and The Usos as well as signed photos of The Usos, John Cena and Sheamus…Michael Hayes worked the show giving music and production cues…..There were a few video flubs early in the show.
