LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - For John Cena, there was big trouble in Little Rock. First, the 2011 WWE Superstar of the Year found out that, instead of the usual 30 entrants, this year’s Royal Rumble will be the largest in WWE history with 40 Superstars with which to contend. Then, during the main event match against CM Punk, the returning Superstar got slammed to the mat by a mysterious mountain of a man, who had intervened on Punk’s behalf. Who says bigger is always better?
Mark Henry won an Over-the-Top Rope Challenge
For the love of a good woman – or in this case, a really bad one – Ted DiBiase issued an Over-the-Top Rope Challenge. And Mark Henry was there to answer the call. In fact, during the contest, the two were joined by nine other Superstars, including King Sheamus, R-Truth, David Hart Smith, Darren Young, Yoshi Tatsu, Zack Ryder, Primo, William Regal and Tyson Kidd. Despite the crowded field of fellow Rumble competitors, The World’s Strongest Man flipped his final opponent over the top rope to claim victory.
