SEGMENT SIX: #1 Contender Match for the World Heavyweight Championship Contract on a Pole Match - Alberto Del Rio vs. Dolph Ziggler
Match Result: Sheamus ended the match by going “Alright, alright, I’ll fight you both…”
Match Length: A little under five minutes
This was ridiculous fun. Just a mad scramble that played up the innate stupidity of pole matches. Unlike ladder matches, winning here only required keeping your opponent down for a very brief time, leading both men taking every opportunity to attempt grabbing the contract on the pole. So, it was nothing but mad dashes and big bumps, which both men are quite adept at. The inability for either man to ‘control’ the contract took things to another level of insanity. There really couldn’t be any other finish than Sheamus mocking them, saying that the match will be a triple threat, and then promising to kick their asses arses. One of those times where playing up the absurdity really paid off in a fun, entertaining way.
Rating: 8.0 out of 10
