Detailed Results

The show kicks off with the longest reigning WWE Champion in SmackDown history and the color commentator for WWE Main Event, as well as RAW & SmackDown, John “Bradshaw” Layfield as JBL would conduct an interview with “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry in the middle of the ring. JBL first shows footage of Mark Henry’s back-to-back attacks on Sheamus a couple of weeks ago before JBL introduces Mark Henry, who joins JBL in the ring. JBL says that he has never seen Sheamus get “decimated” the way that Mark Henry decimated him. Mark Henry says that Sheamus thinks that it does not matter how “big or bad” someone is, but he proved Sheamus wrong. JBL then declares, “because that’s what you do” and Mark Henry responds, “that’s what I do”, but after JBL excitedly repeats himself, Mark Henry asks if JBL is “making fun” of him. JBL immediately backtracks, saying that they are both Texas boys and saying that he would not make fun of “The World’s Strongest Man”, saying that is Mark Henry’s “biggest fan”. JBL continues, saying that he would love to see Mark Henry in action on Main Event and Henry agrees. JBL says that Mark Henry does not turn down any challenge, saying that beating people in singles match has been done time and time again and Mark Henry agrees again, saying that he will take on two WWE Superstars. JBL admits that it would be great to see that, but mentions that the fans have been seeing quite a few Handicap Matches as of late, saying that Big Show has been “awesome” in his 2-on-1 Handicap Matches. Mark Henry then asks if JBL is saying that Big Show is “more powerful” than him before volunteering himself to take on three WWE Superstars. JBL says that Mark Henry is “The World’s Strongest Man”, suggesting that, if Mark Henry were to face four Superstars in a Gauntlet Match, he might finally get the respect he deserves. Mark Henry thinks about it for a moment before telling JBL to get out of the ring because he will face any four Superstars in a Gauntlet Match!

After some unintentional coaxing from JBL, the featured attraction of Main Event would see “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry face four Superstars, one after the other, in a Gauntlet Match! Jimmy & Jey Uso then come out as Jimmy Uso would take the unenviable task of going one-on-one with Mark Henry in the first part of the Gauntlet Match. Mark Henry quickly dispatches the tag team specialist, hitting the World’s Strongest Slam on Jimmy Uso, defeating one-half of the Usos. Jey Uso then tries to get the jump on Mark Henry, but to no avail as Henry quickly regains the advantage. Jey was later able to get a short boost of offense against Mark Henry, but Henry proved too much for the second Uso, planting Jey Uso with the World’s Strongest Slam to advance in the Gauntlet Match. Santino Marella was then revealed as Mark Henry’s third adversary in the Gauntlet Match. Mark Henry powers through Santino Marella, squashing Marella with the World’s Strongest Slam, defeating his third Superstar in a row. Mark Henry’s fourth and final opponent in the Gauntlet Match would be quite a bit tougher than his previous three as “The World’s Strongest Man” would have to combat “The Punjabi Giant” The Great Khali. Mark Henry would manage to overcome the size of The Great Khali, planting Khali with the World’s Strongest Slam. However, Khali would manage to get his foot on the bottom rope, avoiding the defeat. Shortly after this, Khali hits two chops to the skull of Mark Henry, resulting in Henry rolling out of the ring and, after collecting himself, Mark Henry opts not to get back in the ring, taking a count-out loss as Khali puts an end to Henry’s reign in the Gauntlet Match!

With the Triple Threat Match for the World Heavyweight Title coming up in a month at Extreme Rules where Dolph Ziggler will defend the World Heavyweight Title against both Jack Swagger and Alberto Del Rio, Swagger’s manager and mouthpiece, Zeb Colter, speaks on the Triple Threat. Colter accuses Del Rio of sneaking his way into the title match before addressing Dolph Ziggler, saying that Ziggler has “peculiar and questionable morals”. Zeb continues, saying that the world deserves a better champion, saying that Jack Swagger will be that champion and, this Friday on SmackDown, he will prove it when he faces Del Rio in a No Disqualification Match. Jack Swagger then comes out, repeatedly shouting “we the people”.
