-Barrett on the mic now, and he says that was impressive. He puts over Kidd as a Hart Dungeon graduate, and that he beat him in under 5-minutes. He is also not surprised that Sheamus lost his title, since he already beat him. he says if Sheamus had put the title on the line, he would have won the title before Big Show.

Sheamus is out now, fella, and says that it is a misconception that the English and Irish do not get along. While he personally has no issues with the English, he doesn’t like Barrett. He wants to fight Show again, but while he waits for that, he wants to put Barrett in his place. What about next week on Main Event? Barrett thanks him for his kind words about the English, and the feelings are not mutual, and he hates Sheamus the most of all the Irish. Next week they are in HIS England, and he doesn’t lose in England. Sheamus says there is a first time for everything. He’ll enjoy kicking his arse even more. Sheamus then charges the ring, Barrett ducks a brogue kick and bails.

They meet next week on Main Event.

-End scene.
