Sheamus & Randy Orton def. World Heavyweight Champion Big Show & United States Champion Antonio Cesaro

On the same week that saw United States Champion Antonio Cesaro defeat both WWE Hall of Famer Sergeant Slaughter on Raw and former World Heavyweight Champion The Great Khali on WWE Main Event, General Manager Booker T ordered The Swiss Superman to join forces with World Heavyweight Champion Big Show to take on Randy Orton & Sheamus.

Despite obvious friction between Sheamus & Orton earlier in night, for a while, it seemed as if the explosive combination would work together without a hitch. After The Celtic Warrior avoided Big Show’s KO Punch and leveled The World’s Largest Athlete with the Brogue Kick, he tagged The Viper into the match to finish off their adversaries.

But as Orton looked ready to take down Cesaro, The Celtic Warrior tagged himself back into the ring, immediately causing noticeable discourse between the two former World Champions.

Second later, Sheamus hit White Noise on the United States Champion, setting up the inevitable Brogue Kick. But before he could hit it, Orton suddenly jumped into his path and hit Cesaro with the RKO. In doing so, he instantly snatched the thunder away from The Celtic Warrior, who was left to pick up the pin without hitting his signature maneuver. 

If the match’s outcome shows one thing, it’s that as Superstars head down the road to the Royal Rumble Match, allies will be as dangerous as enemies.
