So let me get this straight. Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio are fighting (again) because Sheamus made a mess out of Del Rio’s sports car? Wow! What a premise for a World Heavyweight Championship match – almost as good as when Big Show and The Big Bossman fought over Big Show’s dead dad’s coffin! You have to love WWE Creative … no you don’t.
Del Rio outsmarted the big Irishman at every turn throughout this formulaic championship match. With Sheamus’ arm already injured on Smackdown Del Rio predictably worked it over throughout the contest. Despite being in ‘obvious’ agony Sheamus managed to reverse the Cross Arm Breaker into a slam and powered his way out of trouble.
An incident involving the turnbuckle early on seemed innocent enough but actually set up a near fall when The Great White ate a face full of steel. When Sheamus kicked out of the pin a frustrated Del Rio began attacking his personal ring announcer which allowed Sheanus to use a weapon (a shoe?) and pick up a victory. Unfortunately Del Rio’s foot was over the bottom rope which will no doubt lead to another rematch down the line. Hurrah.
Del Rio was not pleased with the end result.
