BIRMINGHAM, England — WWE Main Event’s first-ever broadcast from the United Kingdom kicked off in a big way with the arrival of World Heavyweight Champion Big Show. Making his way to the ring to join The Miz and Michael Cole at the announce table, The World’s Largest Athlete scouted his Survivor Series opponent, former World Champion Sheamus. Outside of the massive shadow cast by Big Show, R-Truth battled Heath Slater and next week’s tag team main event was announced.

Earlier during on WWE’s U.K. trip, Sheamus and Big Show found themselves trading blows in a pub brawl. On WWE Main Event, The World’s Largest Athlete came to observe his rival while The Celtic Warrior had another brawl awaiting him — this time against Wade Barrett.

The culture clash between the British grappler, Barrett, and the fighting Irishman, Sheamus, was particularly symbolic in Birmingham, England’s LG Arena. The Bare-Knuckle Brawler cameprepared to address his opponent, but The Celtic Warrior wasted no time making his way to the ring, stalking past his enemy and unleashing an attack on his lingering foe, Big Show. Officials separated the two warriors and restored order so the night could continue, but the bad blood between the World Heavyweight Champion and his Survivor Series challenger was already boiling.

After the bedlam was quelled, the featured contest of the evening finally got underway between two of WWE’s toughest and most resilient Superstars. Barrett tried to find the best way to tactically approach Sheamus and prove himself a major contender in WWE. The Celtic Warrior’s main goal for the evening was to send a loud and clear message to the World Heavyweight Champion observing from ringside. Support from the WWE Universe inside the LG Arena was split between Sheamus and their fellow countryman (and otherwise hated Superstar) Barrett, giving The Celtic Warrior more incentive to secure a victory in front of The World’s Largest Athlete.

As the battle raged back and forth, Michael Cole described the match perfectly: “a European-style brawl.” Neither competitor maintained an advantage for long as their respective toughness and relentless fighting styles was certainly on display.

Although the contest was a virtual stalemate, Barrett built a great deal of momentum in the middle of the match as they fought on the outside when he executed a devastating elbow drop off of the barricade. This, however, was not enough to suppress The Celtic Warrior, who battled back before the two struggled through countless near-falls, leaving the WWE Universe — and Big Show — on the edge of their seats.

Sheamus mounted a final offensive that all but sealed the deal in Birmingham. As he lifted Barrett up to execute White Noise, Big Show left the announce table, but The Celtic Warrior delivered his patented maneuver and a win-securing Brogue Kick.

Following the contest, Matt Striker caught up with the retreated giant in the locker room area, but The World’s Largest Athlete’s only response to the interviewer’s questions was a potent KO Punch to Striker’s jaw.
