We are in Lafayette, Louisiana and your announcers are Rich Brennan and Jerry Lawler.

Mark Henry makes his way to the ring and he has something to say.

Mark says it will be twenty years in August since he signed his first WWE contract. In that twenty years, he has been everywhere but the North Pole, South Pole, and Antarctica. He has done everything under the sun. He has held titles. He was ECW Champion. He was European Champion. He was WWE Champion. There is one thing that he has not done. . . win the Royal Rumble match.

In 2016, that so special match will be something he can x off his list. We know he is the strongest man in the world. There will be twenty-nine other men that he will toss . . .

Konnor and Viktor interrupt and they make their way onto the stage.

Konnor says the World's Strongest Man, it appears to them that you have the World's Shortest Memory. Viktor reminds Mark that they eliminated him in the Andre the Giant Battle Royal. Not even the World's Strongest Man can take on the World's Sickest Tag Team. Viktor says they will eliminate all twenty-eight other superstars in the Royal Rumble. Konnor says it starts with you Mark.
