#2 DX vs. Jeri-Show – WWE TLC 2009
Though the TLC Match was originally designed with tag team competition in mind, by 2009, there had not been a tag match of its kind for nearly seven years. The match had become devoted to WWE and World Heavyweight Title defenses. That changed at the inaugural WWE TLC pay-per-view, when the evening’s only Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match featured then-champions Chris Jericho & Big Show defending against D-Generation X.Despite all four participants’ decorated careers in all types of stipulated contests, this was the first match of its kind for all involved except Jericho. Big Show’s participation in the battle added a daunting challenge for Triple H and Shawn Michaels, who found themselves chokeslammed through tables and tossed into one another on top of a ladder. Clearly, The World’s Largest Athlete understood the risk of allowing either DX member to climb a ladder, so he began to destroy every one he could find.
With HBK and The Game reeling, Big Show ingeniously hoisted Jericho on his shoulders so that he could reach the titles hanging above. The move also gave DX enough time to recover, though, and HBK hit Big Show with Sweet Chin Music, sending Jericho tumbling onto a table outside the ring. Michaels and The Cerebral Assassin then removed Big Show with half of a broken ladder, allowing Triple H to hold the ladder’s half as Michaels climbed up to secure WWE Tag Team Titles.
After turning in back-to-back contenders for “Match of the Year” in their first two meetings at Hell in a Cell and Survivor Series – in addition to brawling in an English pub and a parking lot – World Heavyweight Champion Big Show and Sheamus will battle for the illustrious World Title for a third time in a Chairs Match at WWE’s final pay-per-view of 2012, WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs.
Following Big Show’s World Heavyweight Title victory over Sheamus at Hell in a Cell on Oct. 28 in an incredibly intense contest that ended after, not one, but two KO Punches, it was clear that the competition between the two was just heating up.
That proved true as Show assaulted Sheamus and William Regal at an English pub during WWE’s recent European tour, leaving Regal battered. The vitriol between the massive new champion and The Celtic Warrior then exploded in a parking lot slugfest on the Nov. 16 edition of SmackDown. But, the most shocking sequence of events yet would emerge from their epic rematch at Survivor Series.
When Big Show sensed the possibility of defeat in the climatic final moments of their showdown, the World Champion suddenly pulled referee Scott Armstrong in front of the Brogue Kick, before hitting a distracted Celtic Warrior with the KO Punch. Because The World’s Largest Athlete lost by disqualification, he was able to hold onto his priceless title. But that wouldn’t stop Sheamus from unleashing his own brand of retribution.
Picking up a steel chair, Sheamus attacked The World’s Largest Athlete in one of the most extreme assaults in recent years. Repeatedly blasting the gigantic titleholder, Sheamus tossed away his weapon only after Show repeatedly appealed for him to stop. Discarding the chair was not a compassionate decision, though, as the Irish Superstar put the painful icing on the cake with the earth-shattering Brogue Kick.
In the wake of Big Show’s controversial title defense and Sheamus’ brutal chair assault, SmackDown General Manager Booker T made the announcement on the Nov. 23 episode of SmackDown: Big Show will defend his World Heavyweight Championship against Sheamus at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs on Sunday, Dec. 16. But Booker’s proclamation included a twist.
Most likely based upon Sheamus’ savage chair attack, this World Heavyweight Championship clash will be a Chairs Match, which is sure to add a wrinkle to the proceedings. Sheamus has gotten the best of the giant once with a chair already, so the match stipulation could help The Celtic Warrior.
For Big Show, however, both the chair and the upcoming pay-per-view hold a dark place in his heart. After all, at the WWE TLC event one year ago, the giant lost his newly captured World Title after only 45 seconds when Daniel Bryan cashed in his Money in the Bank Contract seconds after his Chairs Match against Mark Henry.
Complicating matters even further, current Mr. Money in the Bank Dolph Ziggler is always waiting in the wings for the opportunity to cash in his own contract on the champion. If he does choose WWE TLC as moment to seize his opportunity, the question is: Who will the champion be?
With two instant-classic matches as a blueprint, the WWE Universe has an idea of what to expect when these behemoths collide: high-impact, high-intensity action between two of WWE’s biggest and most powerful Superstars. With each battle, with each war of words, this grudge has only grown more barbaric. Can either Sheamus or Big Show survive another show down?
INDIANAPOLIS — The punishment unleashed Sunday night by Sheamus left World Heavyweight Champion Big Show in a wholly unfamiliar state of helplessness, but it fell short of earning The Celtic Warrior his second World Heavyweight Championship.
Though it was Big Show who was left exhausted, battered and crawling back to the locker room after the closing bell rang, the cagey veteran used an underhanded tactic to retain the title.
Capping off a fortnight of despicable acts that included concussing Sheamus’ mentor William Regal and spilling many a frosty pint of brew in an English pub, Big Show pulled official Scott Armstrong into the path of Sheamus’ Brogue Kick during a critical moment in the title bout. The illegal maneuver, which became apparent to all upon viewing the replay, scored Big Show some breathing room as well as a valuable distraction. Sheamus joined WWE referees and medical personnel in checking on Armstrong, and as soon as The Celtic Warrior returned his attention to the champion, it was too late.
Big Show was lying in wait, and he pounced with a KO Punch the instant Sheamus turned around. Though referee John Cone, who entered the ring to assist Armstrong, originally counted the pinfall in Show’s favor, he later ruled Sheamus prevailed via disqualification because Big Show intentionally put an official in harm’s way. From there, Sheamus — equipped with a steel chair — began a post-match assault the World Heavyweight Champion and the WWE Universe won’t soon forget.
Nearly 20 minutes earlier, however, both Superstars were upright and trading stiff blows in the opening moments of the championship encounter. Picking up right where their Match of the Year candidate from last month’s WWE Hell in a Cell left off, Big Show and Sheamus clobbered each other. The Irishman tore into the 440-plus-pounder with rib-bruising knees, and Show brought his XXXL-sized mitts down upon Sheamus’ chest with weltering effect.
Facing a larger opponent, The Celtic Warrior was able to put his speed advantage to use, yet the strategy did not always pay off. Sheamus launched himself off the top rope, but Big Show simultaneously propelled himself into his challenger with a giant spear. The subsequent mid-air collision created a ring-trembling impact and, according to Jerry “The King” Lawler, was a potential turning point in the match.
After the huge spear, Big Show began to methodically work over Sheamus with headbutts and a jumping elbow drop before stepping his size-22 5E boot onto the red-haired skull of his opponent. Never one to give in, Sheamus fought back valiantly as the WWE fans in attendance supported their hero with chants of “Let’s go Sheamus!”
The Celtic Warrior, his right bicep still bruised from his barroom scrape-up with Big Show, clutched onto the champion with a sleeper hold. The giant shrugged him off, prompting an incredulous JBL to ask, “How do you counter the strength of a giant?”
Sheamus, it turns out, had an answer.
As Big Show prepared for his patented splash off the middle rope in the corner, Sheamus got to his feet and lifted the massive champion onto his shoulders before dropping him to the canvas with a high-voltage electric chair.
Slowly, both men fought to a vertical base. With the WWE Universe solidly behind the challenger, The Celtic Warrior built a head of steam, delivering a high knee, ducking the KO Punch and dropping Big Show with a clothesline and brutal double ax-handle. The World Heavyweight Champion countered a Brogue Kick into a chokeslam, but that, too, was reversed into a devastating White Noise.
When Show amazingly lifted his shoulder at the two-count, all Lawler could muster was the word “Unbelievable.”
From there, Sheamus pounded his chest like a gladiator readying to finish off a foe and rushed toward Big Show with the Brogue Kick, only for his boot to strike the referee. The initial announcement that Show had won the bout was not without controversy, and Michael Cole and JBL debated the fairness of the decision.
Once Sheamus regained consciousness post–KO Punch, the irate Irishman brought the fight — and a steel chair — to Big Show, repeatedly blasting the champion with the weapon. Though fans in attendance clearly wanted The Celtic Warrior to continue his onslaught, a battered and beaten Big Show begged off and Sheamus threw the chair aside.
Discarding the weapon was not a merciful decision, though, as Sheamus immediately Brogue Kicked the grounded Big Show seconds later.
The World’s Largest Athlete may have made good on his guarantee that Sheamus would not dethrone him as the World Heavyweight Champion, but considering the manner in which he did so, did Big Show do anything to discredit Sheamus’ accusation of cowardice?
More to the point, is this rivalry destined to go a third round, and if so, what in the world can the WWE Universe expect the next time these two behemoths collide? With each brawl, this grudge has only grown more barbaric. Can either Sheamus or Big Show survive another showdown?
Just one week ago, a very real argument could have been made that Sheamus was the single most dominant World Heavyweight Champion of all time. But at WWE Hell in a Cell, two giant KO Punches did everything they could to silence that argument as Big Show bested The Celtic Warrior and laid claim to his illustrious title. Now, with a Survivor Series rematch already set, the WWE Universe — and, for that matter, Sheamus himself — are left to wonder just how the former titleholder can hope to defeat his gigantic nemesis and reclaim the championship gold that was taken by the colossus.
With a willingness to take on all comers and an uncanny ability to fight through pain, The Celtic Warrior was a proud and unstoppable champion, flourishing in his role atop WWE. So when Sheamus met Big Show at WWE Hell in a Cell, despite the giant-size odds stacked squarely against him, it only stood to reason that the fighting champion would once again prevail.
But it was not to be.
The match itself was just as physical and brutal as the WWE Universe expected, as the two powerhouses displayed a ferocity that was, at times, frightening to watch. When it was all over, though, Sheamus’ reign as World Champion came crashing to an end. The former champion will have another chance at The World’s Largest Athlete — and at his World Title — come Survivor Series, but how does one even begin to prepare for Big Show?
At times in their match at WWE Hell in a Cell, the new champion displayed complete domination over The Celtic Warrior, tossing the Irish Superstar around the ring like a rag doll, and leaving angry red welts that materialized all over the brawler’s chest.
That said, overpowering Big Show may be out of the question. Perhaps The Celtic Warrior should instead focus on his submission skills, which were prominently on display in his World Title 2-out-of-3 Falls Match against Daniel Bryan at Extreme Rules. But think back to WWE Hell in a Cell — Sheamus tried to lock in the Cloverleaf, but to no avail as Big Show powered his way out of the usually devastating hold.
There’s always the old standby of the Brogue, though, right? Well, maybe not.
As was made abundantly clear at WWE Hell in a Cell, even the mighty Brogue Kick missed the mark and failed to bring the giant down. Without his most potent weapon, how can Sheamus possibly beat Big Show? Sheamus hammered away at the giant with every move in his arsenal, but Big Show kept powering ahead, kicking out of a thundering White Noise and the Brogue Kick.
Sheamus gave Show everything he had, and Show absorbed it all.
But, just as it took two KO Punches from Big Show to dethrone The Celtic Warrior, maybe if Sheamus had connected with a second Brogue Kick at WWE Hell in a Cell, his title reign would have continued.
Also, keep in mind that it was the first time Sheamus ever faced Big Show in a one-on-one battle, and it took a massive array of offensive power moves that included a chokeslam and two KO Punches to stop the former champion. What’s more, Sheamus has now hit White Noise on the 441-pound Big Show twice, an astonishing feat of strength that will certainly play a factor in their coming rematch. And as was evidenced in the wake of Big Show’s pub room attack on the Nov. 6 episode of SuperSmackDown Live, it became clear that Sheamus is angry. As the WWE Universe knows, an angry Celtic Warrior is capable of some mass destruction of his own.
It’s more than a little strange to see the giant get manhandled, but through flashes of brilliance since their meeting at WWE Hell in a Cell, Sheamus has done just that. Perhaps those flashes can lead Sheamus to the light of another World Title reign. After all, only three seconds is the difference between victory and defeat in WWE.
Hey everyone a tragedy has taken place. Yes, the owner of bigshow-source.net the site is now taking a new admin.
RICHMOND, Va. — John Cena and the WWE Universe wanted Big Show to explain his shocking actions, and boy did he ever. In a fiery tirade, The World’s Largest Athlete showed no remorse for his attack on Cena at WWE Over the Limit, setting the stage for an emotional match that will take place at No Way Out. Also on Raw SuperShow, a lopsided contest set up by General Manager John Laurinaitis turned into a locker room-clearing brawl as Laurinaitis-chosen lumberjacks tangled with other WWE Superstars.
John Cena called out Big Show; match made for No Way Out
Executive Administrator Eve interrupted the Cenation leader to introduce Laurinaitis, who sputtered out onto the stage aboard a “People Power” scooter (perhaps we’ll see that sold on an infomercial soon?). The GM cited his potential serious injuries that he sustained during his match against Cena and reminded WWE Superstars that they risk immediate termination if they lay a finger on him moving forward. Laurinaitis then announced that Cena will face the rehired Big Show at the No Way Out pay-per-view on June 17!
The World’s Largest Athlete refused to apologize for his actions at WWE Over the Limit and said he “did what he had to do” while the crowd chanted, “You’re a sellout!” Big Show angrily shouted at Cena for judging him and threatened to knock him out at No Way Out. As Big Show stormed off, David Otunga came out and challenged Cena to a match and dedicated the one-on-one contest to Laurinaitis.
