Christian & Mark
Henry def. World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton & Kane (WATCH |
Hope is still alive for Christian. Although his loss to Kane in a World Title qualifying match hit him hard, SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long gave him a second chance. Due to Mark Henry’s interference in the qualifying bout with Kane, Long ordered up a tag team battle. If Christian’s team won, he’d earn a World Title opportunity.
Fighting tooth-and-nail, Christian and Mark Henry took on The Big Red Monster and World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton. Sacrificing himself, Christian took an RKO from Orton. But before The Viper could capitalize, he instantly found himself in Henry’s waiting clutches and the victim of The World’s Strongest Slam.

After dispatching of Tatsu with a full nelson, suplex slam, The Great Khali tossed him from the ring. Following the destruction, Mahal informed the WWE Universe that they should continue to expect more of the same from him. And, they should expect no more dancing or kissing from Khali, as his only mission will be to serve.
