Home » WWE News » Show’s Title Shot at WWE TLC, Update on Booker T vs. Cody Rhodes, Daniel Bryan Speaks

- As seen on SmackDown last night, Daniel Bryan cashed in Money in the Bank to defeat World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry. The match was overturned by Teddy Long because Henry wasn’t able to compete. Bryan told WWE.com in a storyline video that he tried to cash in because then, he wanted to take the World Heavyweight Title from Mark Henry more than he wanted to main event WrestleMania 28.

– Regarding Bryan’s steel cage match against Henry on this coming Tuesday’s live SmackDown special, the winner of that match will defend the World Heavyweight Title against Big Show at WWE’s TLC pay-per-view.

– Also coming out of SmackDown, WWE has a new backstage interview with Booker T, discussing Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes. Booker insists he does not want to return to the ring to face Cody because his wrestling days are over. Booker says he has put that life behind him and it’s about focusing on the new generation of stars. This is all part of the storyline as Booker is scheduled to return to the ring soon

    Wow, I miss reading one Smackdown result and this is what happens. I’m glad Bryan is getting back into relevancy since he’s been losing just about every week. No way to treat the future Wrestlemania headliner. Reading the results on WWE.com, it looks like he does still have the briefcase though I wonder what the point of giving him a sudden main event push now means. If WWE actually puts Bryan in the World Title match at Wrestlemania, I’ll be shocked. I have a feeling he’s going to lose that briefcase or lose his title shot before then.

    Are we really trying to apply logic to a wrestling storyline? C’mon. Mizzark said before hand he wasn’t cleared to compete. There’s your explanation. They wanted to gauge the crowds response to him winning. But then again its Smackdown so its hard to tell what the audience is doing and if the cheers are legit or edited in. It was pretty obvious that something was going to overturn it cause if he had really won the World Title, I’m sure it would have leaked out a little before then.

    the champion must be on their feet when cashing in. henry wasnt standing. he was just rolled over and pinned

  • KpNuttzLol

    A stupid angle really. Batista beat down Edge and CM Punk cashed in, Mark Henry beat down Undertaker badly and Edge cashed in, Edge beat Jericho and his bruised ribs down badly and Swagger cashed in. So really, it made no sense to do that.

    I think Bryan will win the title. It will lead to Henry attacking at TLC causing some DQ finish, a Triple Threat at Royal Rumble and somehow Bryan will be back in the main event at Wrestlemania with his briefcase.

  • Pissed Off Fan =(

    I would love for Booker T to win IC title one last time BUT with yhis storyline they can use it to bring in Goldust

  • TheMark

    Booker, what the point of announcing your “last run” on twitter then denying you are going to wrestle on wwe.com?

  • WWE@Helms

    By the way I forget CM Punk and I meant compete not complete.

  • WWE@Helms

    @D2K John Cena,Undertaker,Chris Jericho,Edge, Rey Mysterio, Randy Orton. They were all MEDICALLY,able to complete but not Mark Henry so therefore the storyline makes it that the title match never happened.

  • D2K

    That’s lame. What’s the point of him having the MITB just the decision can be overturned? How many other times have titles changed hands when someone cashed in a MITB on a injured opponent? Bad move.

    Looks like Henry will win.
