Fans immediately drew references to the movie Braveheart, to which McIntyre is compared a lot. WWE’s resident William Wallace took the pain to Sheamus by working him onto the steel steps. 

He also showed his former best friend why they call him ‘The Scottish Psychopath’ when he used a kendo stick and tried to push its end into Sheamus’ eye socket! 

This was the least of the punishment as the two took their brawl all around the screen areas of ThunderDome. The climax of the match was reached when McIntyre sent Sheamus face-first into three of the screens, causing a sickening electric crack with it. 

Drew McIntyre and Sheamus did not drop the pace of the match

The intensity of the match never fell as the two brutally fought each other. Drew was in complete control until Sheamus caught him off guard with a huge Brogue Kick. ‘The Celtic Warrior’ was weary with his scars and the wounds from the earlier kendo stick attack were already showing. 

Taking advantage of his downed opponent, Sheamus used his sheer strength to lift up McIntyre while standing on a barricade! He then delivered White Noise to the former WWE Champion into the Commentary table!

Things backfired on Sheamus when Drew McIntyre countered his one in the ring only to deliver a huge Claymore Kick to end the match by pinfall. ‘The Scottish Warrior’ emerged victorious against his Irish foe, and Drew proved his dominance once and for all. 

Fans were absolutely stunned by this extreme performance. Although it wasn’t long as intense matches go, Drew vs Sheamus has the unique ability to be dynamite in a small package. The two have extremely good chemistry which gives them the ability to connect well in spots.

Drew McIntyre now has nothing stopping him from taking on Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania. He never got his rematch, and finally, the path is clear for it. Although, fans wouldn’t really mind another face-off with Sheamus.
