As we reported prior to the Cody Rhodes "firing" angle that took place on RAW a few weeks ago, the communication broke down between WWE officials and the creative team. That is the reason the angle seemed rushed, as Rhodes requested time off for his upcoming wedding and honeymoon, and WWE failed to write him off of television until the last minute.
Apparently the same can be said for Mark Henry. As noted, Henry injured his hamstring at a recent WWE live event, but has since been cleared to return to in-ring action. According to one source, the creative team was not aware that Henry was cleared to compete until reading it online. The communication backstage in WWE is said to be in really rough shape at the moment, resulting in the Rhodes and Henry situations.
