Ryback is set to face Mark Henry at WWE WrestleMania 29. The company allowed the two to face each other during last weekend’s live events to warm them up for their “first” televised encounter.
Fans in attendance say that the Ryback vs. Henry matches weren’t very good. This is to be expected since the two wrestlers are huge behemoths. Not to mention, the two of them have never faced each other before and don’t know each others strengths and weaknesses.
The best kind of wrestling matches are when two wrestlers know each other inside and out and have great chemistry. The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin knew each other very well and always had great matches.
As for Ryback and Henry, the two of them have rarely worked with one another and the size of both of them is a problem too. There’s not much excitement that can happen when you have two big guys that are wrestling each other. Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XX was boring because both wrestlers refused to increase the tempo of the match.
There is some backstage concern within the WWE with how Ryback vs. Henry will appear at WrestleMania 29. The plan right now is for Ryback to pick up Henry for his “Shell-Shock” finisher. If he does it correctly, it will be a memorable WrestleMania moment. If he botches the attempt, it will be an embarrassing moment for sure. Ryback and Henry better step up their game or else fans will voice their opinions loud and proud.
