Sheamus and Drew McIntyre faced off at WWE Fastlane. The announcers phrased this as McIntyre clearing his road to WrestleMania where he will face WWE Champion, Bobby Lashley.
McIntyre had his face painted blue and white like Mel Gibson in Braveheart. Early in the match, McIntyre went under the ring to bring out some weapons but Sheamus was the first to get his hands on the kendo stick. McIntyre ducked a kendo stick shot and then hit an overhead suplex outside the ring before shoving Sheamus into the steel steps.
Back in the ring, McIntyre hit Sheamus with several kendo stick shots. He also jabbed the corner of the stick into Sheamus’ eye. They continued fighting outside of the ring as the camera showed the welts on Sheamus’ back. They brawled around the area where the ThunderDome screens are. They moved up to a second level where the screens are and they traded stiff blows until McIntyre shoved Sheamus through some screens and onto a lower level. They showed sparks coming out as Sheamus crashed through the screens.
McIntyre used a rolling crate to bring Sheamus back near ringside. McIntyre delivered a suplex onto the exposed floor and then he carried him to ringside but Sheamus slipped out and hit a Brogue kick to the face. Sheamus then hit White Noise from the top of the barricade around ringside and through the announcer’s table. At this point, they piped in “this is awesome” chants.
Back in the ring, they traded hard shots and McIntyre hit the future shock on a piece of the announcer’s table. McIntyre then beat Sheamus with the Claymore.
