Payback: CM Punk vs Mark Henry – Intercontinental Championship Match Preview
CM PUNK VS MARK HENRY (c)
CM Punks road to recovery continues as he meets the World Strongest Man Mark Henry at Payback. Punk, a former WWE Champion in universe mode, has been on a downward spiral for an extended period of time on RAW, but ever since he was drafted to Smackdown he has had a career resurgence.
Mark Henry is the only man in Universe Mode who has held two different singles titles, the World Heavyweight Championship and now the Intercontinental Championship. Mark Henry has been one of the most successful superstars in Universe Mode, on top of the two title wins he is also a Money in the Bank winner. Henry continued his dominance by winning the Intercontinental title at Wrestlemania 30 and then successfully defending it against Wade Barrett at Extreme Rules. On a recent episode of Smackdown, Henry was defeated by CM Punk in a singles contest, to allow Punk to enter the Intercontinental title frame.
Punk would move on to face Kofi Kingston who won a fatal four way contest to earn his way into the picture, Punk and Kingston would battle in a back and forth contest with Punk getting the better of Kingston and winning the match and earning the right to face Henry at Payback.
Can Mark Henry continue his dominance in the WWE on the blue brand, or will Punk continue to resurge back into the title scene and win his first championship belt since Extreme Rules 2013?
