-Reminder, I do not rate matches that are under three minutes long…
-JBL and Josh Matthews are our announcers.
-It is SCIENCE TIME, as we will find out which was more powerful, Big Show's KO punch or Sheamus' Brogue kick. We have some sports science center set up, and Show and Sheamus get introduced. The equipment will measure their force per square inch of the brogue kick and the KO punch. Big Show refuses the challenge at first, but insists that his punches are strong. Sheamus does his deal and the brogue kick is measured at 1322, which they claim is twice that of a heavyweight boxer's punch. Show continues to refuse to take the test, and Sheamus says not to worry, because proving the Brogue kick was stronger still wouldn't be as embarrassing as his last title reign. Oh shit it on now son, Show punches and scores 1809. Show tells Sheamus that he will see him at Hell in a Cell. Tensai attacks Sheamus, and that's going to lead to our first match…
