Sheamus has been working round with Ridge Holland and BUTCH, the Brawling Buddies, or Brutes, or no matter, and it’s been superb. They’ve been a largely enjoyable group to observe — that BUTCH certain is a personality, huh — and Sheamus is all the time going to ship good matches.
However this right here is way more attention-grabbing.
On Friday Night SmackDown this week, Sheamus won a Fatal 5-Way to turn into primary contender to the Intercontinental championship, a title he’s by no means received in WWE. He’s lengthy talked about eager to win it to turn into a Grand Slam Champion, and now he’s going to get the chance in opposition to GUNTHER, an absolute killer.
Right here’s his first promo for the reason that match grew to become official, and it’s unbelievable:
“It’s the one title that I haven’t received, proper? That’s what you have been gonna say, isn’t it? As a result of it’s no secret, proper? I’ve been shouting it from the rooftops for the final couple of years — in my time right here in WWE the one title that has eluded me to this time is the Intercontinental championship. I’ve performed all the pieces to place myself in its path. However each time I used to be brief modified. Each time I used to be handed by. Till tonight right here in Montreal, the place I survived and overcame a Deadly 5-Approach match to go on to face GUNTHER at Conflict on the Fort in Cardiff, Wales, which is a stone’s throw away from town I grew up in, proper? It writes itself, Meg, doesn’t it?
“To take what somebody informed me earlier than — when one thing’s meant to occur, it is going to occur. And now we’re weeks away from that chance, that second turning into a actuality. As a result of, Gunther, I’m promising you now chances are you’ll assume that you simply maintain all of the playing cards, that you simply being the champion places you within the pole place, however I’m telling you, fella, at Cardiff, Wales, at Conflict on the Fort, I’m going to tug you into the stomach of the pink dragon and I’m going to defeat you for the Intercontinental championship. And never simply to turn into a Grand Slam champion, no fella, you’re going to be concerned in historical past, in WWE historical past, once I turn into the primary ever Final Grand Slam champion.”
That units up a terrific story so as to add to what is going to undoubtedly be an unbelievable match. What might be higher than two massive brawlers getting after one another?
