Laurinaitis handed down the largest fine in WWE history to Sheamus

HAMPTON, Va. - The Legends of WWE converged on SuperSmackDown LIVE, as World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus received the largest fine in WWE history - before teaming with a master of the mic to overcome two SmackDown World Title contenders.  

SmackDown: Blast from the Past opened with WWE Hall of Famer “Mean” Gene Okerlund interviewing Sheamus – in the midst of the controversy over The Great White hitting referee Chad Patton with the Brogue Kick on the April 6 episode of SmackDown.

The Celtic Warrior wasted no time apologizing for letting his temper get the best of him and for not following the “code of honor’ of a World Champion – saying he was sorry for his actions to Patton, the other WWE referees and the world.

They were quickly interrupted by SmackDown and Raw General Manager John Laurinaitis. After making The Great White repeat all three apologies, he notified the World Heavyweight Champion that he was on “permanent probation,” telling him that if he touches a referee again whether it be accidently or otherwise, he would be immediately fired. “Mr. Excitement” went on to hand down the largest fine in WWE history – $500,000 –  to Sheamus and announced the “Blast from the Past” main event: Daniel Bryan & Alberto Del Rio vs. Sheamus and “Mean” Gene.
