    Default You knew it was coming sooner or later

    - As of now, WWE is planning on doing a strongman vs. strongman battle with Big E Langston and Mark Henry at this year's SummerSlam pay-per-view.

    Urgh, I hope this doesn't turn out like Ryback vs Henry at WM...

    Uh yeah I've no interest in seeing this though I would hope Big E. Langston would go over Mark Henry.

    ZERO interest in seeing this. At the best it'll be a pee break while watching the PPV I guess.

    I like the idea, since Langston is probably stronger than Henry. Could be Henry passing the torch.

    Only if Big E. can win some knee pads if he beats Henry.

    Zero interest in this. Whether its a passing of the torch moment or not it still seems boring as hell.

    Just make Big E wear a singlet like Swagger. Showing way too much cheek as of late. Now if you wanna make AJ wear what Langston is wearing...

    Why? In what possible way does this make sense? Henry should stay a heel, and Langston should stay a heel.

    If anyone should be built towards a feud with Henry based on sheer physical might, I'd want it to be Antonio. Especially since WWE does such a great job of driving home the idea that he is "pound for pound, the strongest man in WWE."

    I was thinking on Monday that Big E needs a new singlet. I am seeing WAY too much ashy ass during his matches.
    Least the man could do is moisturize. Use some lotion, or SOMETHING.

    Every single time I see weights on WWE TV, I turn it off. If I wanted to see big guys lift weights, I would go to the gym.

    We also saw months and months of Maggle Cole versus Jerry Lawler a few years back. When has something sucking ever stopped WWE before?

    Can't believe so many people don't like this, I love the idea. It's a clear passing of the torch, does anyone have a better idea for a feud for Henry? I don't. There's few interesting things left for Henry to do.

    The actual match may suck, but the build up will be pretty cool. As was the Ryback vs. Henry build up, people are probably forgetting it was one of the matches many people were looking forward to most.

    And I never understood why people were looking forward to it so much. I always thought it was going to suck, and they didn't disappoint in that regard (although they certainly disappointed, period).

    This will suck too, and if the build is nearly identical to the stuff Henry's done recently, then I can't see myself caring about that, either.

    The reason I would enjoy this is because it is rare these days that we get a none main event feud that has anything new to it outside of feuds going into WrestleMania.

    There are so many feuds these days which have the same old boring build up which includes costing the other a match and then being paired up with another singles feud for many tag team matches on Raw. It's one of the main problems with Raw. I see this feud being a bit different to all that with each guy showing their strength each week through various competitions and stuff.

    I see what people are saying with it looking to be similar to the Ryback/Henry feud going into WrestleMania, but it's still a hell of a lot better than the generic singles feuds we often get these days. For that reason alone I am glad it is happening.

    Lol...I hear you.

    Actually I hate the idea of a guy as buff as Big E wearing a singlet anyway.

    I've never liked seeing guys built like him wearing singlets.

    I hated it when Warrior tried it, and I hate it now with Big E and Ryback.

    If your that buff, why wear a singlet, why not just wear trunks?

    Put Big E in some trunks, give him some knee pads, and maybe some elbow pads and he'll look awesome.

    I guess I can attribute being excited for this to liking both guys so much. I see a lot of people around here talking about how much Big E can't work and I don't get it. I just don't see that, he's really quick for his size and strong as all hell, what more do you need from a big man? I think he'd get a much better match out of Henry than Ryback did, as long as the build is an actual feud and not a strongman snoozefest, than I'm more than excited for this.

    I would have such a hard time figuring out who to root for.

    Agreed, Big E would look great with trunks/knee pads, or even long pants. I also hated when Warrior had the singlet too. Same with Ryback. Always hated his RVD, flea market looking tights.

    If it works towards Langston as a face I am all for it. I preferred him as a face on NXT

    ( ?_?) - 97% of PW suddenly think Michael Cole is awesome. If you're part of the 3% that still thinks he is an annoying tool, copy & paste this into your sig.

    Let me go on record as saying that Mark Henry has really come into his own the last couple years. I think he plays the monster/strong heel as good as anyone has in the modern era. Henry may not be the greatest "wrestler" but seriously, he has really done a great job at playing this character in his promos and his matches.

    Obviously, they key to a successful match with Henry is to have an opponent that can either wrestle really well or be able to take some awesome bumps.

    I'd be psyched for this.

    So either they're gonna turn Mark or they're gonna turn Big E.

    Based on his current storyline I'd say mark will be the one to turn...which would be awesome.

    Honestly I'd love if it was how mark Henry was written out if he retired.

    He and Big E feud, lift some heavy stuff, and then Mark passes down his moniker of WSM or something.

    You know how Mark "pulled" two trucks last week? Well Big E should pull...FIVE!
