We are back, and we're really zoomed into the gut of Tensai. It's covered in red, as apparently Sheamus is not pulling any punchees. Sheamus hits a few rights before Tensai hits a knee to Sheamus! Tensai whips Sheamus into the corner then hits a splash into the corner. Tensaid on the second rope, and hits a big body splash and a pin for 1...2..NO! Tensai steps on the head of Sheamus and twists the left arm. Sheamus has a cut just above his nose and Sheamus hits some hard headbutts then a few blows to the gut, followed by the clubbing forearms to the back. Shoulder into the gut, kick to Tensai! Axe handle to the head and a pin for 1...2..NO! Sheamus sets up for White Noise, but Tensai hits some elbows to the head of Sheamus. Tensai struggles a bit, sending Sheamus to the outside, but Sheamus is on the apron. He hits a shoulder then does the beat down on the chest thing, only with Tensai on the inside of the ring! Sheamus gets on the tope rope and dives for the battering ram off the corner! Tensai catches him, though, and hits a Baldo Bomb! Pin for 1...2....NO!!!! Whoa. Tensai with some headbutts on the floor to Sheamus. Both men up and he tries to whip Sheamus. Sheamus holds on tight, though, then gets hit with a kick. Sheamus hits the ropes just as Tensai does, too. Brogue Kick from out of nowhere! Pin for 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Sheamus (**1/2)
I can't help but feel like we missed something very vital during the break. I can only imagine that the match in its entirety, without the break killing the momentum would have given me something much more to latch onto.
We're backstage and Vince, Teddy and Johnny Ace are all there. Vince says that this match was Strike 1 for Ace. He then asks who should face Sheamus for the World Title? Ace is about to say who, but Vickie Guerrero comes in and says that she has two former World Championships on the roster in Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler. Vince says that Ace should consider this. Ace asks for Teddy's opinion, which shocks the hell out of Teddy. Teddy then says that there are actually FOUR former World Champions on the roster in The Great Khali, Christian, Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger and a Fatal Four Way with the winner getting the title shot would be a great idea. Ace says that was exactly what he was thinking and makes Teddy go get him some coffee. He puts his fist up for a bump from Vince, and Vince says he has small hands.
Back to RAW, and Tensai is in the ring beating up on Sakamoto. He's got him by the hair, and he's slapping him around a bit. A hard right sends the man down, then Tensai palms the face of homeboy, all the way screaming in Japanese. Tensai sends him to the outside. We're on the outside, and Tensai presses Sakamoto's head against the announce table. Tensai sends him back first into the ring post then back first into the barricade. Some thigh smashes to Sakamoto's head seems like enough, before the refs spill out. Thanks for coming, Tensai.
We're backstage and R-Truth is here with Matt Striker. Striker brings up the attack on him two weeks ago. He says he's fine, diddle dandle, to be exact. He claims that Lil Jimmy was more traumatized than anyone else. He tells Lil Jimmy not to be sensative. Jimmy straightens up. Truth says that the truth is, this Sunday...The Big Show is going to lose to John Cena. When Cena steps inside the steel cage, Show is going to find out the----
Big Show's right hand enters the screen and knocks out Truth. haha. That probably shouldn't have been as funny as I thought it was.
We get a recap of Santino's match with Ricardo from three weeks ago. Apparently, this match was made by Johnny Ace, and before it even begins, I can see this as a fail of sorts...
Ricardo acts as if he doesn't want this match at all. We're starting with the ladies. Go behind by Layla into a side headlock. Beth looks for a backsuplex but Layla uses her momentum to stop it. Ricardo calls for a tag, but Layla kicks his hand. He comes inside just for Layla to use him to spring foreward, but Beth is able to drop her down and pin for 1....2..NO! Beth sets up for a suplex.
