Next to come to the ring is Sheamus.
Booker thanks both men for joining him in the ring to have the debate.
Booker says that it is traditional to start with an opening statement and he lets Big Show go first.
Show tells Booker that he would like to thank him for this opportunity . . . he says that this debate is completely ridiculous. There is no need for a debate. He is going to walk into the cell, hit Sheamus with the WMD, and he will walk out as the World Champion. If Sheamus tries for a Brogue Kick, he will rip off his little leg.
Booker let’s Sheamus give his opening statement. Sheamus introduces himself and he points out that he is the World Champion. He thanks Booker for hosting this debate in lovely Oklahoma City. Sheamus asks Big Show to not rip his leg off because he will need it to kick Show’s teeth in.
The first question: What do you find as the most challenging aspect of your opponent?
Sheamus says that he has never ducked from a fight. He is looking forward most to the fight. He has never faced a bigger, stronger, more impressive superstar than the Big Show. Sure he has big B.O. and his breath smells. He hopes this match lasts longer than 45 seconds.
Show wants to know if Sheamus is taking a quick jab at the 45 seconds. He says that he is a hygienic giant. He says that Sheamus is not taking this serious. He tells Sheamus to stop being a funny guy.
The next question: Which is the more dangerous move: The Brogue Kick or the WMD?
Show says that his WMD has knocked out more superstars and won more titles. Ask John Cena or Randy Orton.
Sheamus says that Show forgot to mention Daniel Bryan. Not only did Show not knock out Daniel Bryan, Bryan beat him in 45 seconds to win the World Title.
Show says that there were extenuating circumstances.
Show destroys his lectern.
It is time for the final question.
Sheamus wants to see a Tout. It is from Rey Mysteri’O’Sullivan. The question is how does it feel to know that your head is going to be knocked off his shoulders.
Booker realizes that it was Sheamus in a mask and he tells Sheamus that this is a serious debate.
Show tells Sheamus to be serious and his patience only goes so far.
Sheamus wants to know how it feels to lose the World Championship to Daniel Bryan in 45 seconds only to see Bryan lose the title to him in 18 seconds. Show says that he is going to win the title, but how does it feel.
Show gets in Sheamus’ face and they drop their mics. Show unbuttons his jacket and takes it off. Sheamus removes his shirt. Show leaves the ring without any physicality.
