EDMONTON, Alberta – WWE Main Event was full of pulse-pounding WWE action including Sheamus battling Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett, Justin Gabriel going toe-to-toe with Antonio Cesaro and R-Truth joining forces with Tons of Funk to face 3MB. Also, a brand new commentary team of The Miz, Josh Matthews and Ricardo Rodriguez debuted!

Sheamus def. Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett (Non-Title Match)

Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett and The Celtic Warrior are no strangers inside the squared circle. They have faced off previously in battles that have degraded into all-out brawls. Also, still visibly upset over his loss to Fandango on Raw following The Miz’s interference as special guest referee, Barrett engaged in a heated exchange with The Awesome One before the contest, only to ramp up tensions.

The familiarity between Sheamus and Barrett was clearly evident early in the contest as momentum swings remained even. Although The Celtic Warrior tried to rely on his strength to keep The Barrett Barrage at bay, The Bareknuckle Brawler’s resilience was enough to balance out Sheamus’ offense.

The physicality of the contest reached a fever pitch when Barrett knocked his opponent out of the ring causing Sheamus to apparently injure his elbow. Alas, The Fighting Irishman remained in the fight even as Barrett targeted the elbow.

Just as the WWE Universe had hoped, the match turned into an all-out brawl with neither Superstar maintaining an edge for very long. It became impossible to predict who would have his hand raised in victory. Barrett and Sheamus pulled out all the stops, but it was ultimately a Brogue Kick out of nowhere that secured a hard-fought victory for The Celtic Warrior.

Following the contest, the Intercontinental Champion had some harsh words for the Canadian crowd, claiming he was so tough he could beat them all. Barrett then directed his attention to his nemesis, The Miz. Challenging The Awesome One ended up making the British grappler’s night even worse as he was silenced with a Skull-Crushing Finale.
