Sheamus def. Alberto Del Rio via Disqualification

When Alberto Del Rio confronted Vickie Guerrero backstage, the former World Champion informed the GM that he was going to “take the night off.” But when Sheamus characterized a contest against Del Rio as being akin to a night off, a match between The Celtic Warrior and The Mexican Aristocrat was made official.

Sheamus entered the subsequent match with his ribs taped up, still suffering the effects of Christian’s Frog Splash in the Elimination Chamber Match Sunday night. And as the action spilled to the outside, Captain Charisma himself emerged and joined the SmackDown announce team.

Back inside the ring, Sheamus locked Del Rio into The Cloverleaf. But, before that could play out, Christian once again displayed his new aggressive streak, hitting The Celtic Warrior from behind and causing the disqualification. Though Del Rio tried to capitalize after the bell rang, Sheamus connected with a thundering Brogue Kick. There was no celebration for The Celtic Warrior, however, as Christian planted the Irish Superstar with the Kill Switch.
