World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus def. Jack Swagger

Sheamus offered the opinion that his shoving John Laurinaitis on Monday Raw SuperShow was either an accident or – if his naysayers are to be believed – an “accident on purpose.” Instead of apologizing to “Mr. Excitement,” World Heavyweight Champion apologized for Laurinaitis being a “massive arse.” He then went on to ridicule Eve, David Otunga and even Big Show.

Moments later, Vickie Guerrero interrupted, stating that Eve just informed her that The Celtic Warrior would go one-on-one with Jack Swagger.

Despite Guerrero’s interference and the All-American American’s unrelenting assault on an ankle injury that Sheamus suffered during the match, the first-ever Irish-born World Heavyweight Champion roared back with the unending spirit of a true Celtic Warrior. When the dangerous Swagger went for the Gut-wrench Powerbomb, The Great White escaped – seconds before hitting the Brogue kick for the victory.
