This was a good main event. We’ve seen this before, but these guys didn’t disappoint. Orton and Sheamus put on a great match. Both were solid in this match and put on a good show.
As always with a match, they go back and forth throughout. Both guys build momentum but get shutdown by each other. Christian is staying true to his word and not playing favorites in the match and calling it down the middle.
For the majority of the match Sheamus dominates the match, but Orton keeps showing he’s still got gas in the tank, as he begins his usual routine with the power slam, backbreaker, etc. Sheamus shows a pretty unique way of climbing the ropes, but he gets superplexed by Orton. Near fall after near fall, after near fall.
Later in the match Sheamus hits Christian, and he decides not to call the three count, and he gives Orton the win.
After the match though, Christian hits Orton right in the head with the title, telling Orton he knows he can beat him for the title. Turning Christian heel (finally), and to cap it off Christian walked out of the arena with the title.
All in all it was a great way to end the show, and Christian taking the title was the icing on the cake to a good edition of SmackDown!
