Mark Henry to officiate arm wrestling match on WWE Raw

An arm wrestling competition is set for tonight's post-SummerSlam episode of Raw.

WWE announced this afternoon that Mark Henry will officiate an arm wrestling competition between United States Champion Apollo Crews and Bobby Lashley on Raw tonight:

After overcoming MVP at SummerSlam to retain the United States Championship, Apollo Crews must now test his strength against 'The All Mighty' Bobby Lashley -- with a WWE Hall of Famer presiding, as 'The World’s Strongest Man' Mark Henry will officiate an Arm Wrestling Competition between Crews and Lashley tonight on Raw.

Crews is already more than familiar with Lashley’s brute power after being put on the shelf earlier this summer by Lashley’s devastating Full Nelson.

Henry figures to help keep order with the rest of The Hurt Business likely not far behind, but can Crews withstand Lashley’s indomitable strength?

MVP's Hurt Business stablemates Lashley and Shelton Benjamin were banned from ringside for Crews' United States title defense against MVP on last night's SummerSlam pre-show. WWE has announced that Crews will defend his US title against Lashley at Payback this coming Sunday (August 30).

Tonight will be the first Raw of the WWE ThunderDome era at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. Keith Lee will make his official Raw debut after losing the NXT Championship to Karrion Kross in the main event of TakeOver XXX.

Aleister Black will appear on the KO Show with Kevin Owens tonight. Ivar of The Viking Raiders facing off with Dolph Ziggler in Raw Underground is also set for the show.
