Cesaro def. Sheamus; trails Best of Seven Series 3-2

Cesaro def. Sheamus; trails Best of Seven Series 3-2

Still alive after Match No. 5. Cesaro’s long, arduous march toward a guaranteed championship match continued on Raw, where The King of Swing built upon his cross-country victory last Wednesday to narrow Sheamus’ lead in their Best of Seven Series to a single match. That puts The Swiss Superman within striking distance of The Celtic Warrior, who was blanking Cesaro 3-0 as recently as last Monday.

Losing the goose egg seemed to have done wonders for The Swiss Superman’s confidence: Even though Sheamus kept battering away at his back, Cesaro entered the match like a man renewed, smothering the Irishman with an early offensive press that included a Sharpshooter attempt. Sheamus bullied his way back into the match, of course, but Cesaro ultimately beat the Irishman at his own chicanery, escaping the Celtic Cross, applying a rollup and using the ropes for extra leverage.
