Neville defeated Sheamus
I’m not a big Sheamus fan. I still call his move the “BRO” kick. I don’t care. Neville’s stature definitely proves that Sheamus is not a little guy. I thought the match was good, a bit short for my tastes, but it worked for the most part. Neville was able to overcome here, and I’m absolutely impressed with this athleticism. He is so fluid, it’s seems so simple how he moves with so much weight on him. He may very well be the best pure athlete to come around in a long time. Neville’s win came as Sheamus got distracted by Dolph Ziggler. Neville’s going to definitely go far if he stays injury free, unlike that chump Daniel Bryan.
Sheamus and Ziggler brawl was cool. Sheamus got busted open the hard way, which definitely added a good amount of flavor to the match. I liked that touch. Not sure if it was planned however.
Bad News Barrett defeated R Truth
I almost though that R Truth was going to win this one. He had some good offense overall, but it was Bad News that got the win with his finisher, the Bull Hammer. I liked it enough. It wasn’t great, but it had some good moments. It was enough for me to at least not get too bored. Truth can still go, I’m impressed. Bad News is my pick to win this thing as I write this.
Wade Barrett defeated Neville
In a rushed match, Wade Barrett gets the predictable pin here. I think Neville’s great, really, but his offense doesn’t make sense to me. There is no “psychology” to some of the stuff he’s doing. However, it’s refreshing none the less.
This year’s King of the Ring winner Wade Barrett. Good stuff, not great, but hey, it is what it is.
