If these are, indeed, Sheamus and The Usos’ last days sporting championship gold, they certainly know how to make the most of them. The troika of champions sent their No. 1 contenders packing on Raw with a coordinated effort against Cesaro (who’ll face the Irishman for the U.S. Title) and Gold & Stardust (currently vying for the WWE Tag Team Titles). And it was certainly a tough road to do so.
Gold & Stardust, typically reliant on theatrics and psychological warfare, adopted the heavy-hitting attitude of their polyglot partner and knocked their opponents all across the four corners of the ring. Cesaro got his licks in, too, mocking Sheamus by using Ten Beats of the Bodhrán against one of The Usos early on in the contest. The biggest brawler of the bout was by far Sheamus, though, whose offense against Stardust kicked off a Pier-Six Brawl that ended with an Uso frog splash to a Superkicked Cesaro for the win.
