Catch show on
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.
Big Show def. Mark Henry
Once again, Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes emerged to make fun of Big Show’s 3-8 WrestleMania record, claiming that by costing the giant an opportunity to go to The Show of Shows at Elimination Chamber, he “saved” him from “floundering” yet again.
When The World’s Largest Athlete joined him in the ring, however, Rhodes quickly exited into the crowd. Before Show could pursue him, Theodore Long put a stop to it, announcing that the two adversaries would face off for the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania.
Then, as Rhodes sat in with the SmackDown announce team, Big Show battled Mark Henry in the ring. Charged with the prospect of impending WrestleMania redemption, the gigantic Superstar kicked out of the World’s Strongest Slam, then landed the WMD to reign supreme over the former World Heavyweight Champion.
Mark Henry vs. Big Show
Big Show immediately unloads some punches on Mark Henry at the sound of the bell. Big Show punches him in the corner, backs up, and delivers a splash. Henry ducks a WMD, and he takes Big Show down with a clothesline. Henry stomps at him and drops a forearm. Henry head-butts him in the back for the head and pushes him down. Big Show fights back with some punches, but Henry takes him down with another clothesline. Henry talks some trash, and he knocks Big Show down as he was getting up for a two count. Henry pushes him to the ropes and stands on him. Henry yells at the referee, and he goes back to punching Big Show. Henry chokes him with a knee, and he screams for Big Show to sneak up on him. Henry talks some serious trash, and he stomps Big Show in the corner. Henry whips him hard to the corner and runs into a boot. Big Show takes him down with a big clothesline.
Big Show hits a few more clotheslines and finishes up with a spear. Cody Rhodes’ music hits, and he comes out to the stage. Rhodes says Big Show Chokeslamming someone can’t be WrestleMania. Rhodes then shows Big Show’s match against Akebono at WrestleMania. Rhodes says Big Show made an “ass” of himself. The video is called, “Another Embarrassing Big Show WrestleMania Moment.” Big Show was staring at the screen, and he turned into a body slam from Henry. Henry hits a big splash for a near fall. Henry argues with the referee. Henry grabs Big Show, and Big Show comes back quickly with a WMD. Cody Rhodes looks stunned. Big Show then leaves the ring to chase down Rhodes. The match appears to be over.
World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan came out next and cut a great promo after being invited out by Michael Cole. Cole admitted to being wrong about Bryan all this time and offered Bryan his hand. Bryan didn’t shake Coles hand but instead gave him a bit of a well needed reality check as he informed him that not everything is all about Michael Cole. Bryan then began to tell the crowd that he is a great champion aswell as a great role model out and tells everyone that they should be vegans just like him. He explains he shouldn’t have to defend his title in the Elimination Chamber and especially not against five other men, especially not against Big Show, who he beat four times and holds the shortest title reign of all time and is a complete failure that doesn’t deserve to be in the match. Bryan continued to say that if Long doesn’t take show out of the Chamber match, then he will take his case to the board of directors and get Teddy Long fired. As the champ thanks the crowed and is about to make his exit, the Big Show makes his way to the ring (big reaction). He says he would have been out sooner but he just finished a great big steak. Show tells Bryan that he is no role model and he will no longer be champ after the Chamber. Bryan then said that he understands that due to the odds, he may lose his title but it will not be to the Big Show as Show will lose, just like he always does. Bryan then pokes Show and Show starts to beat on him until AJ appears (Witha neck brace), Show tries to apologise to her for what he did, Bryan then tried to attack Show from behind but Show grabs him and is about to Knock him out but AJ stops him and the Champ escapes from the ring, AJ follows and leaves with Bryan.
Big Show def. Mark Henry by Count-out
After breaking out of Bryan’s LeBell Lock, Show roared back, chokeslamming the champion and nearly landing a crushing WMD. Bryan scrambled out of the ring, but where will the submission specialist run when he faces Big Show and Mark Henry in a Steel Cage Match this Sunday?
The Daniel Bryan vs. Big Show World Heavyweight Title Match ended in a No Contest
Amidst an extremely heated No Disqualification, No Count-out World Heavyweight Championship Match between Daniel Bryan and Big Show, The World’s Largest Athlete took off after the World Champion outside the ring. However. his offensive came to a grinding halt when the giant accidentally slammed, full-force, into a defenseless AJ, thrusting the unsuspecting Diva to the ringside floor and bringing a premature ending to the intense competition. WWE medical personnel carried the injured Diva out on a stretcher, with an openly guilt-ridden Big Show and an irate Daniel Bryan following behind.
Because the match ended in a no contest, Bryan retained his championship gold. As a result, he will face Mark Henry in one week as part of a special Sin City SmackDown in Las Vegas.
