With momentum now on his side, Riddle carried on his onslaught with consecutive corner suplexes, an exploder, the Bro-ton and the jackhammer. Unfortunately for him, all that got him was a two count. Sheamus smashed Riddle with a Brogue kick but the champion somehow kicked out at two.

Riddle tried to end the match with a submission but Sheamus powered out of the move. Riddle tried again with a sleeper but the Irishman forced the break by grabbing the ropes. The exasperated Champion went for the springboard moonsault but was caught by a brutal Brogue Kick from Sheamus mid-air.

There was no recovering from that. One, Two, Three, Sheamus is your new United States Champion. An apt reward for being one of the best perforners in the last few months for the WWE.
