Title This: WWE Wrestlemania 29 Reaction

Mark Henry defeated Ryback



This match frustrated me the most. Ryback gets his big debut at Wrestlemania against Mark Henry. Throughout this feud, I was stern in saying that Ryback winning was a guarantee. I was fooled, as most were. Ryback and Henry started things off ala Goldberg/Lesnar of Wrestlemania XX. They teased some fighting for a few minutes. They finally got going and it was slower than I thought. A few bear hugs, a few clotheslines, and then it seemed like the match was coming to the conclusion. Ryback gets Henry up and the crowd erupts. Henry reverses it and lands right on Ryback. Henry picks up the win. Ryback would get his moment after the match with a Shell Shocked, but the crowd did not pop as loud because it was ALL ABOUT seeing him get Henry on his shoulders the first time. Ryback needed this win badly. He continues to lose big matches over and over again. You cannot give a guy an undefeated streak, face CM Punk and John Cena, but then lose clean to rookies and a veteran who could get others over. If Henry lost, he does not lose credibility because he is ESTABLISHED. Ryback is not.
