World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus & Rey Mysterio def. Dolph Ziggler & Alberto Del Rio by Disqualification

After enduring an absolutely brutal offensive by his two opponents Alberto Del Rio & Dolph Ziggler — in his first match back in action in nearly a year,  mind you — a completely war torn Rey Mysterio managed to tag Sheamus into the explosive main event.

The Great White quickly cleaned house. But just when he was looking for the Brogue Kick on the Mexican Superstar, Ricardo Rodriguez grabbed his leg from outside the ring. This forced the referee to call for the bell and give The Celtic Warrior and his heroic masked partner the win by disqualification.

However, when Sheamus turned his attention to Rodriguez, Del Rio seized the opportunity to launch a painful, post-match strike. He hit the first-ever Irish-born World Heavyweight Champion with an earth-shattering kick to the side of the head, before locking him in the Cross Armbreaker. He refused to let go as a figurative sea of officials worked to get his the titleholder loose.

Dio Rio finally relented, leaving the ring on his own treacherous terms. At that moment, seeing The Great White writhing in pain, Ziggler looked poised to cash in his Money in the Bank contract. But, just when he was about to make use of his opportunity, a revived Mysterio burst into the ring and blasted The Showoff with the 619. Regaining his bearings, Sheamus followed up with the Brogue Kick that finished off the bleach blond threat ... for now.
