With his partner Scott Dawson providing guest commentary at ringside, Wilder kept Shorty G on defense with some ground and pound. However, the ever-resilient former Olympian fought back and locked his foe in the Ankle Lock for an academic submission victory. Shorty G had no time to celebrate, however, as Dawson bolted from the commentary table and blindsided Shorty G before the former SmackDown Tag Team Champions dropped their new rival with a Shatter Machine.
Their attack came grinding to a halt, though, as Sheamus made his long-awaited return, prompting Dash & Dawson to exit the ring. The bad news was just beginning for Shorty G, however, as The Celtic Warrior dropped him with a Brogue Kick before coldly glaring into the WWE Universe and taking his leave.
That’s one way to make a comeback.
