SmackDown General Manager Booker T made the first-ever SmackDown match between World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus and Damien Sandow

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Just one week after an RKO out of nowhere cost Dolph Ziggler a chance to cash in his Money in the Bank contract on World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus, The Showoff got a chance at retribution, as he and The Viper clashed one on one in SmackDown’s main event.

World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus kicked off the best show on Friday nights by acknowledging the illustrious career and fighting spirit of Triple H. He pointed out that although the future of The Game may be uncertain, one thing was clear: The King of Kings was the embodiment of a champion. He then added that his opponent at Night of Champions, Alberto Del Rio, was ironically the opposite.

Before Sheamus could tear into The Mexican Aristocrat, Damien Sandow interrupted the “ignorance spewing hooligan.” Calling Sheamus a buffoon and a propagation of Irish stereotypes, the self-professed “martyr” deemed the champion unworthy of his time. Before “The Intellectual Savior of the Masses” could depart, however, SmackDown General Manager Booker T came out and, to the delight of the WWE Universe, made a first-time ever showdown for later in the evening: Sheamus vs. Sandow.
