[2011-11-29-WWE-Smackdown] Daniel Bryan vs Mark Henry (Cage)

Recommended Posts

World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry vs Daniel Bryan - Smackdown 11/29/11 Steel Cage Match

 

Daniel Bryan's little hunny, AJ, kisses him on the lips before the match. Daniel gives a pretty good promo to Matt Striker before the match. He is confident that he can get the job done tonight given the fact that Mark Henry's ankle was broken by Big Show at Survivor Series. This is one of the best cage matches of the all time, a good mix of cage use early and escape attempts. Mark Henry is like a wounded bear injured, but still very dangerous. Daniel Bryan tries to take advantage of his limited mobility by trying to escape the cage. Henry catches him both times. Bryan tries to chop the big redwood down with kicks, but Henry just flings Bryan into the cage and then splashes him into the cage. The best is when Goliath uses the slingshot on David. Henry pulls Bryan back on the ropes and then lets go sending Bryan into the cage. Henry's ankle is really bothering him. He keeps trying to leave via the door, but Daniel Bryan desperately holds onto the injured ankle. Mark Henry hits two of his BIGGEST clotheslines. These were just awesome. Bryan did a great job selling, Mark Henry is selling the ankle really well. Eventually Daniel Bryan gets Mark Henry down and applies the LeBell Lock. Henry powers out, but Bryan wriggles free and it is the ankle lock. HUGE POP! Henry uses his power to whip him off. Bryan goes for the escape. I thought they did a great job building Bryan's escape teases. The crowd was wicked into this. Henry ultimately hits the Worlds Strongest Slam from the top rope to win the match. Mark Henry's knees must hate him. Excellent David vs Goliath match with the wrinkles of the injured ankle and the steel cage. ****

This is always such a joy to watch. Henry is at his best; talking trash & throwing + pummeling a smaller opponent around. He also has a banged up ankle going into the thing, so naturally Bryan sees a target in it & it creates for an AMAZING peak for this banger of a match. The whole finishing gear from that LeBell Lock on is some truly superb stuff. ****
