The show finally gets underway after more promos and video packages letting us know what led up to this big event. No Way Out indeed! Once you’ve paid for the show on PPV, there’s literally no way you can avoid watching it. You’re stuck, you dropped $45 on it and dammit, you’re going to consume it even if it kills you.
So how do they start off the show? Who’s the curtain jerker? Why, it’s the World Heavyweight Championship match of course. Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler. That’s how highly regarded this title and this champion are. This title hasn’t been a main event draw in years and it’s not going to improve any time soon. Hell, your WWE champion isn’t even your main event anymore, it’s John Cena and whatever goofball gimmick he happens to be involved in at the moment.
Enough of that. This was a good match. Ziggler is great in the ring and makes everyone around him look that much better. A very high energy match to get the crowd revved up and ready for some action and it was a match that you honestly could see going either way. Unfortunately it didn’t. Sheamus, as much as I love him, almost ended this thing the way his match at Wrestlemania with Daniel Bryan went.
Dolph got a good luck kiss from Vickie and almost turned around into a Brogue kick. Thankfully though, he ducked it and they fought for much longer than 18 seconds. I honestly believe there would have been a riot had they ended this match that way.
The crowd really started getting behind Dolph in this match with “Let’s Go Dolph” chants, and just when you think he might pull it off? BROGUE KICK TO THE FACE! And Sheamus retains. This match was nearly 20 minutes long, and it was fun. More of this, and less of….
