Riddle also hit a dive off the top into a near fall. Riddle locked in a reverse armbar but Sheamus powered out of it and slammed him but just as Sheamus was going for the pin, Riddle locked him in a choke.

Sheamus tried a sunset flip bomb off the top but Riddle slipped out and then went up to the top but Sheamus reverses into and he tried White Noise but he slipped with Riddle on his back and hit a regular White Noise. Sheamus hit a Harley Race knee off the top and then went for a pin but Riddle kicked out.
