Jerry “The King” Lawler comes out to the ramp, where there is a throne and the traditional King of the Ring robes set up for tonight’s winner. They roll a video package highlighting all four of the preliminary matches from Monday Night Raw. Lawler joins Michael Cole and John Layfield as tonight’s commentary team.
Sheamus does a backstage interview with Byron Saxton, proclaiming victory. He calls Neville an “English Elf” and says everyone in his new kingdom will have to kiss his arse.
Neville is interviewed by Renee Young, and talks about his rise from NXT as the NXT Champion, debut on Monday Night Raw and upset victory at Extreme Rules. He’s all about showing Sheamus and the world what a “little fella” can do.
King of the Ring Semi-Finals
Sheamus makes fun of Neville’s height as the crowd sets in with “you look stupid” chants. Neville with kicks until he’s caught with a big sideslam. Sheamus beats on him for a few minutes before throwing him off the apron, crashing hard into the announce table. He just answers the referee count at nine. Sheamus continues his bullying, yelling things like “little fellas don’t belong in my ring”. He hits White Noise and looks to put the match away, but Dolph Ziggler comes out and rolls footage of him winning at Extreme Rules. Neville blindsides Sheamus with a kick to the side of the head, followed up with the Red Arrow for the win.
Ziggler, who is wearing a sleeveless jean jacket with mermaids on the back, rushes the ring and tells Sheamus he never got his Extreme Rules stipulation, and now he’s here to collect. Sheamus at first escapes from the attack, but ends up going back into the ring and the two fight until a heard of zebras break it up and hold them back. Sheamus has a MASSIVE cut over his eye, and is bleeding everywhere.
