    His return was awesome, much better than Swagger’s. Glad they are keeping him as a monster heel. Hall of pain continues!

    • James

      I agree that Henry’s return was awesome, but I also think Swagger’s return has also been very good. He is serious which is how he should be and I also liked the black singlet he wore tonight a much darker Swagger who I believe can be very good. I really, really hope he gets put in the chamber match I love the new Swagger. What haven’t you liked about it?

      • Randy James Crawford

        No I think he is just saying Mark Henry’s return was better because he got himself more noticed probably.

        • Steve

          Henry just is a bigger star than Swagger, thats all. Swagger really need some public speaking training or something. he is good in ring, but his promos needs to be a lot better if he wants that main event spot

      • Sisisi!

        Swagger can go far as a dark serious character, he has the skills.

      • HollywoodRonCorleone

        I like the new swagger always seen this side in him even back in his ECW days… Always been a fan of his work… His mic skills they are not the best but neither was bret harts and he’s pretty good lol

    • Vince

      Hopefully Vince won’t bury him.

      • Randy James Crawford

        If Vince buries him, He buries Vince.

    • HollywoodRonCorleone

      Agreed I was marking the fuck out last night I missed that Mark Henry jaw jackin while he’s kickin ass! My boy said ” I’m an original! There will never be another like me!” Can’t wait to see him put Langston and Ryback in they place

    • Raheel Aslam

      Hall of Pain is in the past its time to BENT ON DESTRUCTION

  • A Paul Heyman Guy

    Swagger needs to change his persona. His character now is stale and boring if he keeps on going like this he will end up being like tensai just a jobber/joke

  • Stijnosb

    damien and cody split because they wanted to push their singles career… yet Damien Sandow has landed on the land of future releases.. WWE Superstars…

  • WWEFan4Life

    Its been a whole week of awesome returns, Lesnar, Jack Swagger and now Mark Henry… just awesome

    • Progress_Now

      lol Swagger? the crowd was dead during his entrance and even deader when he beat Santino. it’s just noone gives a damn about him

      • WWEFan4Life

        Yeah, I suppose… but still, 2 monster heels making a return in 1 week? Still pretty good in my book

        • Progress_Now

          Swagger is a monster?

          • WWEFan4Life

            No, Lesnar and Mark Henry

    • morrisonfanone

      Now if Christian came back I would be happy.

      • WWEFan4Life

        Yes, that kid really does need a good push, WWE certainly havent been using his in ring skills properly, and I wouldnt really blame Christian if he wanted to leave (if he hasnt already) I mean, wouldnt you, if you were not being used, but you had awesome skills in the ring and you were being kept of TV. I know I would

        • Mr_DJ

          Christian will be turning 40 this year, I’ll consider it lucky if he gets another relevant push because of his injuries.

          • WWEFan4Life

            Really? Jesus… yeah, then I understand why wwe want to let him rest

          • Backstreet Bungalow

            They don’t want him to rest it’s no secret Vince just doesn’t care for him

          • WWEFan4Life

            Vince doesent really care about anyone but his poster boy Cena.

        • morrisonfanone

          I could’ve sworn I was the only one that liked him.

          • WWEFan4Life

            Nope, there are thousands of peeps around the world. Including me and you

  • Abra Kadabra

    Mark henry should have a squash match against ryback. Ryback being the guy being squashed! Henry makes a more believable indestructible force than ryback too


    Honestly Henry’s return does not surprise me one bit, Vince u call yourself a leader… Come on really!!! This is a typical WWE return of a big guy.dont get me wrong it was great that he came out & brought the pain!! But really.. REALLY this is another 400+ pounder that could easily be a main eventer, yet as I said before typical has to take out the small guys…hmmm sounds like guy recently maybe ryback!???

  • morrisonfanone

    How did they keep his return a secret. I wasn’t expecting him to come back like this. I did expect him to be heel.

  • BEASTziggler

    Good he’s a dominant heel. They’re turning everyone face now!

  • JamieEvsxx

    sweeeeeeeeeeeet all we need is a return from Captain Charisma and it’s all gooooooooooood…xD

  • I’ve still got it

    WWE needs Mark Henry to come back strong, there’s a void on the heel side that needed to be filled. Now if they could send Randy Orton full heel, they’d have something. Mark Henry looked good, the man’s arms are bigger than my thighs.
