King of the Ring Semi-Finals Tournament Match: Neville def. Sheamus
MOLINE, Ill. – It truly was a royal night on WWE Network, as Dolph Ziggler got some payback on Sheamus, The New Sensation electrified the WWE Universe and a new King of the Ring was crowned.
WWE King of the Ring Live began with bang as Sheamus collided with Neville in a battle of size versus speed. Despite The Celtic Warrior’s claims of being the bigger man, it was The Man That Gravity Forgot that would come out on top, thanks to some help from Dolph Ziggler.
The Irish powerhouse took advantage of the vast size difference between him and The New Sensation, delivering clubbing blows to his British opponent. However, it was a distraction from The Showoff that would open the door for Neville, who connected with a kick to the head of Sheamus before electrifying the WWE Universe with the Red Arrow for the victory.
Ziggler wasn’t done though, as he soon charged the ring and attacked Sheamus in a vicious post-match brawl that left the Irishman busted open.
