We are back and Mark Henry makes his way to the stage and he has something to say. He tells us who he is. He says that he did not become World’s Strongest Man because he won it in a cracker jack box, he did it because he earned it. He was a member of the US Olympic Team in 1992 and 1996. He has been World’s Strongest man since he entered the WWE 17 years ago.

He earned the respect of every Superstar he worked with, but there was jealousy, politics, and there was a lot of backstabbing. There are a lot of ‘accidental’ injuries. All of these years, he has earned it. ‘They’ never gave him a legitimate opportunity to be the WWE Champion. The thousands of miles he traveled, the nights he spent away from his family, the years that he pretended to like the boys.

All the years of doing the right thing for the business, that got him nowhere. He deserves to be the WWE Champion. After the years that he has given to this organization and to the people, he has earned the right to be the WWE Champion. Like he said before, they hang on every word he says because the people are puppets.

At Money in the Bank, now that he finally has his chance, nobody is going to keep him down any more. He will do the right thing. He will do the right thing for him. After he beats John Cena, nobody will be able to deny him. Everyone will say that Mark Henry earned the WWE Championship.
