BIRMINGHAM, England ? As WWE once again made history by bringing SuperSmackDown LIVE to the U.K. for the first time, Randy Orton squared off with Wade Barrett in a furious Falls Count Anywhere Match, Sheamus & William Regal looked to get gigantic retribution on Big Show & Wade Barrett and Kofi Kingston put his Intercontinental Title on the line against The Miz.??
An irate Sheamus took issue with World Heavyweight Champion Big Show?s barroom sneak attack
A very angry Sheamus joined Michael Cole in the ring as the lights came up on an epic SuperSmackDown LIVE. Clearly not in the mood to be interviewed, he insisted that Cole leave the ring, as he paced back and forth like a caged animal.
The rage of the first Irish-born WWE and World Heavyweight Champion was the direct result of an altercation with World Heavyweight Champion Big Show the previous night inside a Birmingham pub. In the volatile incident ? first reported by WWE.com and captured by a mobile phone recording (WATCH) ? The Celtic Warrior was sharing a pint with former Intercontinental Champion and King of the Ring winner William Regal, the same English grappler who has been a tremendous influence on Sheamus? and so many other Superstar?s careers.
In an act of pure aggression, Big Show suddenly launched a surprise assault from nowhere, not only unleashing his massive fists on Sheamus, but also hitting the KO Punch on Regal ? a move that the red-haired competitor interpreted as an incredibly disrespectful act to both himself and the legendary Blackpool brawler. In response, the fuming Sheamus called out Big Show to finish what he started, 12 days before their Survivor Series World Title clash. (MATCH PREVIEW)
The giant answered this request from the TitanTron, calling Sheamus ?an ungrateful ginger? for ignoring the fact that the massive champion didn?t hurt him worse than he did. He also proclaimed that he wouldn?t waste his time with him on SuperSmackDown LIVE.
Wade Barrett interrupted the verbal confrontation, just one day before he will mix it up with Sheamus in a volatile one-on-one contest on WWE Main Event ? Wednesday on ION Television at 8/7 CT.? After the bare-knuckled brawler questioned Sheamus? sanity for wanting to face both him and Big Show on consecutive nights, the three-time World Champion challenged Barrett to come to the ring himself. Instead, the English grappler opted to save his time and walked away.
As Barrett was strolling through the back moments later, SmackDown General Manager Booker T caught up with him, informing him that, after talking to William Regal, Barrett & Show will take on Regal & Sheamus in a SuperSmackDown LIVE Main Event tag team match!?View Comments
