Sheamus def. The Miz

Safe to say Sheamus and The Miz haven’t had a good couple of weeks, with both men losing their championships — The Miz on WWE Main Event and Sheamus at Hell in a Cell. So what better way for them to work through their frustration than battling each other in a one-on-one match?

With World Heavyweight Champion Big Show taking a prodigious place at the commentary table, The Awesome One met The Celtic Warrior head on in a heated match that saw the U.K. native conquer the mouthy American, though not without some difficulty.

While Sheamus attempted to rediscover his ferocious side, Miz matched him blow for blow through a match of elusiveness and tenacity, withstanding the mighty Irishman’s offense and presenting Sheamus with a stiff challenge by way of his own spry, speedy style of attack.

The opportunistic Miz found his opening, however, after Sheamus lost focus at sight of the giant, recovering from Sheamus’ forearm clubs and using the announce table as a weapon to slow his opponent’s momentum. The Awesome One continued to use Sheamus’ surroundings against him, hauling The Celtic Warrior into the ring steps and trapping the stunned Irishman in a sleeper hold. Miz’s signature backbreaker/neckbreaker combo seemed to slow Sheamus down enough to put victory within reach. Showing off his aggression as well as his in-ring smarts, The Miz was close to a huge victory.

Alas, he was not close enough. After Miz took a bit too long to celebrate his own efficiency, the former World Heavyweight Champion found his second wind and unleashed hell on the beleaguered former WWE Champion, overpowering the surging Awesome One and finally felling him with a White Noise/Brogue Kick combo in a tremendous statement win. It's safe to say that Big Show, who went suddenly silent at the final bell, got the message loud and clear.
