Title This: WWE Raw Reaction 2-4-13

Mark HenryThe Storylines

-After Daniel Bryan defeated Rey Mysterio, We saw the return of Mark Henry. Henry comes out and takes out both men, dominating Bryan and Rey. Rey gets the worse of the two, as Henry tossed him around the ring. Sin Cara tried to come out, but got his with a World's Strongest Slam. I really was happy to see Mark Henry return for a few reasons. The man knows the business, that is why he is still in WWE. He is a student of the game, and his promo work is actually very solid. He is a clean speaker and knows how to articulate his words to create heat from the crowd. His look is still excellent, and he can be used in a variety of ways. His World Heavyweight Championship reign in 2011 was excellent. He was able to build himself up into a dominant force, something that WWE Struggled with in the past. Now that he is back, there is another heel to look out for, while younger guys like Ryback could learn from him. I really am excited to see where this leads Mark Henry. Do not be surprised if he enters the Elimination Chamber. Anyone is better than Khali, right? Grade: B

-The Big Show was not in attendance, but in a hotel room in Atlanta. He told Alberto Del Rio to send a contract over and give him a rematch. After a few horrible scenes, we finally get Big Show eating dinner (the same plate for about two hours) and he gets a guy with a contract. Show signs the contract, but Del Rio is standing outside. Both men brawl in the hotel lobby and Del Rio ends up hitting Show in the head with a Fire Extinguisher.

I really got excited for this rematch last week, but tonight was a different story. I am not sure I really enjoyed the interaction. Yes, it was different, but it seemed like both guys were off of their game. Maybe it was because of the lack of pop Del Rio had, or the fact that I knew Big Show's entire night was taped and came off weak. Was I the only one feeling this? Comment below to fill me in on what it was about tonight that did not sell me on Show/Del Rio.

Grade: C

-Brock Lesnar came out and it was revealed that Vickie Guerrero signed him, and Paul Heyman did not have anything to do with him returning. This occurred on MizTV, and we saw Brock tear the set up and F5 The Miz. Brock is back, so now when does Triple H come back to save the WWE from Lesnar? I still love Lesnar, and he looks like he will be on a rampage until someone tries to stop him. I really wish it was Taker/Brock.

Grade: B
