Mark Henry interrupted John Cena's championship speech

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Having finally redeemed himself on The Grandest Stage of Them All, there was a new, elated purpose to John Cena in his first Raw as WWE Champion in nearly two years. Not only did he seem physically invigorated by the title gold around his waist (check out his championship dance, complete with a kick and a “heel turn”), but Cena also got down to business. He intended to celebrate his title win the only way he knew how: by defending it.

It didn’t take long for a challenger to present himself. Mark Henry, emboldened by his defeat of the monstrous Ryback at WrestleMania, stalked to the ring and demanded an opportunity to challenge for Cena’s hard-won championship. One ruling from new Hall of Famer and reigning SmackDown General Manager Booker T later, and terms were set: Given that the injured Rock was unable to make good on his rematch clause, Henry would indeed get a crack at The Champ … provided he beat Cena one-on-one on Raw.
