WWE Hall of Famer and co-host of Busted Open Radio Mark Henry recently issued a ‘challenge’ to WWE’s creative team. The ‘World’s Strongest Man’ was discussing the upcoming Money In The Bank PPV, and how the company has a major opportunity to be creative with the empty arena situation going forward.
“Oh man, it could be like Donkey Kong” Henry began, discussing about the ‘corporate ladder’ MITB match specifically. “It could be like a video game, it could be like the old Tron movie. I can see Vince landing a helicopter on the roof and handing somebody the title, saying ‘YOU DESERVE THIS.’ If you can make it up? If you could think it, then it can be done in pro wrestling. And I think that is the thing that is happening in this pandemic. We’re actually being allowed, even more so than before, to rely on coming up with something that’s going to be so creative and so out of the box that you just sit back and go ‘I can’t believe that just happened.'”
Henry added, “I’m excited, and the really creative people are able to voice those opinions and try just throw sh*t at the wall and see what sticks. Don’t do what’s common. Don’t do what’s expected. Do what is unexpected. That’s what we, that’s what we [the fans] want anyway.”
Henry would then issue a ‘challenge’ to the creative team at WWE. “We have to think outside the box and come up with something that’s going to rock people’s brains for weeks. And, you know, that’s, that’s kind of where we are in this pandemic time. But all of the writers? This is gonna be a challenge, I’m challenging the writers. I’m challenging the talent to come up with something and think differently than they’ve ever thought before because you now have the ability to do that.”
As noted over the weekend, the WWE Money In The Bank ladder matches were already taped so whatever they have in mind has already been decided. According to reports, the plan is for both matches to be cinematic similar to the Boneyard and Firefly Fun House match.
