Source: F4WOnline- As seen Monday night on Raw, WWE Intercontinental Champion Big E Langston and Mark Henry defeated the team of Ryback and Curtis Axel, with Henry being portrayed as a mentor to the young up-and-comer. This alliance is not expected to last, because as of this week, WWE creative has plans for "The World's Strongest Man" to battle Langston at the Royal Rumble.
- As seen Sunday night at Survivor Series, Mark Henry returned to action by answering Ryback's open challenge, and defeating him. According to F4WOnline.com, the short-lived storyline was copied from TNA Wrestling. On Impact Wrestling on Spike TV, former WWE Diva and reigning TNA Women's Champion Gail Kim has been issuing open challenges, which inspired WWE's creative department to utilize the idea for themselves.
- According to a source within WWE, plans are in place for the company to heavily focus on tag team competition in 2014, and company officials are contemplating holding a three-day tryout camp for independent wrestling duos early in the year. It is said that WWE honcho Paul "Triple H" Levesque is a huge fan of tag team wrestling.
