Will Sheamus’ jokey attitude give him the last laugh?

Speaking of Sheamus, the first-ever Irish-born World Heavyweight Champion has been poking a pretty large stick at Big Show as of late, ever since The World’s Largest Athlete became the No. 1 contender to the World Title in a match against Randy Orton one week ago. 

While getting a few laughs at a giant’s expense might not appear to be the safest course of action on the surface, it remains to be seen whether such actions will ultimately work in The Great White’s favor. Could the motives for his particular brand of humor be strategic — a sort of psychological warfare to throw the former World Title off his game? And if that’s the case, will he be able to successfully get inside the gigantic head of The World’s Largest Athlete, enough to defeat him in their first one-on-one matchup?

In any event, in the wake Big Show walking out of the World Heavyweight Championship Debate on Raw, it will be interesting to see tonight if the time for talk is now done.
