In one of the fiercest matches of the evening, Randy Orton and Mark Henry — two of Sunday’s premier Elimination Chamber Match participants (MATCH PREVIEW) — locked horns for the second time in two weeks. One week ago on the blue brand, The World’s Strongest Man overcame The Viper with the World’s Strongest Slam to smash his way into the pay-per-view contest.

Tonight, WWE’s Apex Predator tried to rectify last week’s loss with the help of the RKO. His enraged opponent countered his attempt at the last second, however, using his incredible strength to send Orton out of the ring with a single blow. Outside the ropes, Henry re-engaged his adversary, but the nine-time World Champion escaped his attack and hit the furious warrior with a chair. While this move brought the disqualification and definitely showed that The Viper was prepared to pull out all the stops in the upcoming Chamber Match, the action would hardly cease at the bell.

When Orton proceeded to continue his assault with a post-match chair attack, Henry seized the advantage again, squishing The Viper with the World’s Strongest Slam and sending a signal that he fully intends to headline WrestleMania.
