U.S. Champion Sheamus def. Curtis Axel

Perhaps it’s appropriate that, before facing Sheamus, RybAxel left the choice of who would battle the Irishman up to a little bit of luck. Specifically, the outcome of a coin flip, although Curtis Axel might have been questioning how fortunate his win was when all was said and done: The Celt went a-clobberin’ early and often against the former Intercontinental Champion, forcing Axel to stage a last-minute rally when defeat seemed certain. Axel lived up to his “Perfect” pedigree by beating Sheamus onto his heels, though the new U.S. Champion proved himself worthy of the gold he wears by breaking out the Cloverleaf for a submission victory.

Alas for Sheamus, Ryback didn’t take too kindly to the Irishman’s defeat of his partner. “The Big Guy” pounced on the Irishman and dared him to throw down for a second consecutive time. Like any fighter worth his salt, Sheamus accepted with gusto.
