But instead of walking off into the sunset, Henry laid out WWE Champion John Cena with a vicious World’s Strongest Slam!

After the shocking turn of events,  Henry challenged Cena to a match. Later, Raw Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero suggested Henry face Cena in a  WWE Title Match at Money in the Bank on July 14, and Mr. McMahon agreed.

Vote: Did Vickie Guerrero make the right call in giving Mark Henry a WWE Title opportunity?

What will the big man do next? If one thing's for certain in WWE, it's to expect the unexpected!
