Zack Ryder def. Sheamus
On Monday, Zack Ryder proved himself to be an American hero by eliminating Sheamus to win the Fourth of July 16-Man Elimination Tag Team Match alongside Big Show!
Three days later on SmackDown, he again made fireworks at the expense of The Celtic Warrior. After beating his opponent to the punch in a top-rope back-and-forth, Ryder dropped the big elbow on the Irish Superstar for the three-count!
Moments after the contest, the victorious Ryder gave the WWE Universe even more to cheer about when he challenged Rusev for a United States Championship Match. He then left the defeated Sheamus to throw a tantrum.
