Sheamus def. Cody Rhodes

The age-old question of what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object was finally answered when Sheamus’ boot collided with Cody Rhodes’ mustache on Raw, initiating an instantaneous pinfall for The Celtic Warrior and a tough loss for the former Intercontinental Champion. But like all great solutions to age-old conundrums, it took some time for the two Superstars to arrive at that fateful point of contact.

With Damien Sandow disparaging the Irishman from a post at the commentary table, Sheamus and Rhodes went to work on each other in the ring. Rhodes certainly lived up to his newest, Sandow-coined moniker (“The Prince of Precision”) in his initial dismantling of The Celtic Warrior. But Cody’s technical acumen proved a poor counter once Sheamus picked up momentum, dodging a Rhodes moonsault and unleashing the aforementioned Brogue Kick to earn a hard-fought win.
