Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio are embroiled in one of most universally hated feuds that I can remember in the WWE, and they will do battle for the world heavyweight championship once again at Night of Champions.
Whether you like both competitors, hate both or are indifferent, I can't imagine anyone wants to see this rivalry continue past Sunday.
In order for it to come to an end, Sheamus must retain his title cleanly against Del Rio, and I believe that is precisely what will happen. The writers have created some doubt by making the Mexican aristocrat look quite strong over the past few weeks, but I feel it's all a ploy to make it look like the Great White is in peril.
It would shock me if Del Rio came out on top, and it would likely shock the vast majority of WWE fans as well. The WWE has a perfect opportunity to move on from this feud by having Sheamus go over, but it had that same opportunity at SummerSlam and didn't take advantage of it.
Here are five reasons why I believe Sheamus will retain the big gold belt at Night of Champions and send Del Rio back to the midcard.
