They show the cell phone video that was posted on the site earlier today, which featured Big Show arriving and starting a brawl with Sheamus, and also attacking William Regal who was there having a pint with Sheamus. Sheamus grabs the mic and tells Cole that it is not a good idea for him to be there right now. Sheamus says part of him respects Big Show for coming to his turf to throw hands, but he cannot respect that Show attacked Regal, someone who has helped Sheamus and many others in the locker room. Sheamus says he is still standing, and he will give Show a chance to finish what he started, right now. In two weeks, they rematch at Survivor Series, and that is about the title.

At the PPV, Show says he will take Sheamus out permanently. Show says to ask Regal if fighting him is a good idea.

Wade Barrett now makes his way out to the ramp with a mic. Barrett says Sheamus is foolish wanting to fight show, considering he has to face Barrett on Main event. Barrett says when he is done; there will be nothing left of Sheamus for Survivor Series. Sheamus then says since Show is too afraid, Barrett can come t the ring and fight him right now. Barrett makes his way to the ring, but then thinks better of that and backs off.
