Chris Jericho and Alberto Del Rio def. World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus and Randy Orton
Sheamus didn’t let a shoulder injury inflicted by Daniel Bryan hold him back in this fiery tag team clash. After Randy Orton went to work on Chris Jericho, The Great White followed with some painful shots of his own as pounded his fist into Jericho’s chest. Jericho and Alberto Del Rio soon found a way to exploit Sheamus’ injury, however, when The Celtic Warrior missed the mark with a running shoulder block into the steel ring post. Finding a second wind, Sheamus scrambled to the corner and tagged back in The Viper, who tried his hardest to fight off persistent double-team efforts from Del Rio and Jericho.
In a stunning exchange, Sheamus hit Jericho with the Irish Curse backbreaker after he was tagged back into the match, and Orton promptly knocked Del Rio out of the contest with a thunderous RKO. But perhaps feeling the effects of his shoulder injury, Sheamus then inadvertently crushed Orton with a Brogue Kick, and Jericho quickly landed a Codebreaker on The Great White to pull off the victory. After the crazy finish, Sheamus tried to lift his tag team partner back to his feet, but The Viper responded by drilling Sheamus with an RKO.
Their adrenaline still running high, all four Superstars in the tag team contest vented in Laurinaitis’ office before engaging in a wild brawl. The Raw and SmackDown GM announced Sheamus will defend his World Heavyweight Title in a Fatal 4-Way Match against Del Rio, Jericho and Orton at WWE Over the Limit.
