The match between The Big Show and Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship ended in controversial fashion, as referee Scott Armstrong was the proverbial sacrificial lamb of Sheamus' Brogue Kick.
Due to the actions of Big Show, his victory over Sheamus via KO punch was reversed. This angered Big Show, causing him to argue with the referee over the decision.
Sheamus was even more angered post-match, as he gave Big Show multiple chair shots up the ramp and a Brogue Kick for good measure.
The writing is on the wall regarding what is next in this rivalry.
The multiple chair shots is a clear indication of a chairs match for the upcoming TLC pay-per-view. Yes—that means more Sheamus and Big Show promos on SmackDown.
Although admittedly their matches on both Hell in a Cell and Survivor Series were better than expected, this feud has pretty much been exhausted. However, there is one thing that could spark this match at the next pay-per-view: a Dolph Ziggler cash-in and subsequent World Heavyweight Championship victory.
Although the hype of Ziggler cashing it in has slightly subsided, it still would be a good surprise. Ziggler also gained momentum with his win at Survivor Series, being the sole survivor of his team. Next month would be a perfect pay-per-view to capitalize on this momentum, quickly starting a feud with Randy Orton after he wins the World Heavyweight Championship.
Eerily, this would be similar to last year's TLC pay-per-view, where Daniel Bryan happened to be in the right place at the right time.
Whatever happens, hopefully this feud does not go past next month.
