WWE Main Event: Barrett looks to upend Sheamus
By MATT BISHOP - SLAM! Wrestling


Tonight on WWE Main Event: With the show emanating from Europe, it's only fitting two of the continent's finest meet in the featured bout on this show. Former World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus meets local favorite Wade Barrett with big implications. Should be a good one!

And we are TAPED! from Birmingham, England. Michael Cole and The Miz are our hosts. This show is presented in WWEHD (TV-PG,V).

Match #1 - Wade Barrett (Manchester, England) vs. Sheamus (Dublin, Ireland)

Barrett's in the ring and starts cutting a promo, but Sheamus cuts that off and makes a bee line to the ring, but not at Barrett, rather he runs right to Big Show, who is at commentary. A bunch of referees come to break it up.

It's still all Barrett. They are on the outside and Barrett runs Sheamus into the steel steps. Then he goes on top of the barricade and drops a big elbow onto The Celtic Warrior. They end up back in the ring and Sheamus is able to break a hold with a back drop.

Sheamus getting rolling as we return. Barrett, though, hits a big thrust kick and then the Boss Man Slam but Sheamus kicks out at the last moment. Sheamus fires back with the Irish Curse backbreaker but Barrett is able to kick out. They go to the top rope. Sheamus headbutts Barrett down, but Barrett charges back and yanks Sheamus right off the top.

Barrett wants an elbow drop from the middle rope but Sheamus gets his knees up. He wants the White Noise and hits it. Sheamus calls for the Brogue Kick and hits it. That's it.

Winner via pinfall: Sheamus

Match #2 - R-Truth (Charlotte, NC) vs. Heath Slater (Pineville, WV)

Action is underway as we return. Truth in control, but Slater takes over when the action spills to the outside. Slater lays Truth out with a big leg to the face. Truth tries to battle back but Slater just chucks him to the outside, where Jinder Mahal kicks him in the head as Slater distracts the ref.

Back in the ring, Truth starts to roll. He hits a leg lariat, but Slater shoves him into the corner and hits a neckbreaker for two. Slater wants a move, but takes too much time and Truth sends him flying. Truth hits his new finisher, but as he's covering, Mahal hits the ring and breaks up the pin and the referee calls for the bell.

Winner via disqualification: R-Truth

Mahal and Slater lay Truth out after the match.
