Minutes to Bell Time

Shorty G vs. Sheamus

Friday Night Smackdown January 31

Apparently the bell rang during the commercial break. When we join the contest, Shorty G uses leverage to send Sheamus to the outside. Unfortunately for Shorty G, Sheamus took control on the outside and rolled Shorty G back into the ring. After a couple of slams to the mat, Shorty G fought back until Sheamus hit a back elbow. Shorty G tied Sheamus up in the ropes to hit a number of forearms and then a top rope missile dropkicks. Sheamus just barely escaped the pinfall after Shorty G hit a moonsault.

Sheamus grabbed Shorty G running in and hit the Irish Curse backbreaker and then the Brogue kick for the pinfall victory.
