Monday night on WWE RAW, we finally learned who will be the next person to take on Rusev, just 24 hours after he ended his feud with Jack Swagger at SummerSlam with a win in their flag match. And as the rumors stated recently, the next man up to take on the Russian is none other than Mark Henry.
Rusev and Lana came out to gloat about their victory at SummerSlam, when they were interrupted by the World’s Strongest Man. Henry hit the ring and began to talk about American pride. He then told Rusev that he was going to give him a personal tour of the Hall of Pain.
That was when Rusev went after his new challenger, but it wasn’t long before Henry left Rusev laying in the middle of the ring with a World’s Strongest Slam, sending a clear message that he is not to be messed with.
And for good measure, Henry made sure that Rusev stayed down.
Again, this is a feud that has been talked about for quite some time, and in the end, we all know that Rusev will end up coming out victorious in this one. All feuds with veterans for Rusev will be enhancers for his character.
But, at least we know that Henry is going to have some fun with it.
