It might have received a nice ovation from the audience, but WWE made a mistake by having Sheamus be buried by Triple H on Monday Night Raw.
In case you missed the episode, Sheamus came out during Triple H's promo. Upon entering the ring, Sheamus was completely dominated by Triple H. The skirmish ended when Triple H hit his trademark Pedigree on his nemesis and crashed the announcer table.
The table wasn't the only thing that was damaged. Sheamus' momentum took the biggest hit.
It's understandable that WWE wanted to build up Triple H as much as possible before he heads into his big-money WrestleMania match against Undertaker.
You want people to believe that it's possible for Undertaker to lose at the biggest wrestling event of the year.
However, there are ways to do it without destroying someone who desperately needs momentum to get back into the main event scene.
WWE also screwed themselves out of a storyline that fans were looking forward to. People wanted to see Triple H gain revenge against Sheamus for putting him on the shelf.
Triple H did gain revenge, but it would have been better in the long run for the revenge to be played out over a month or two.
Sheamus now feels the same pain that Paul London and Brian Kendrick did.
