The 2010 Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Championship had Sheamus defending against John Cena, Triple H, Randy Orton, Ted DiBiase, and Kofi Kingston.
Cena and Triple H squared off in the main event of the go-home episode of Raw, but it was WWE Champion Sheamus who basked all the glory after laying waste to both men in the final moments of their match.

What happened that night?

Both men had a neck-and-neck contest, but it looked like ‘The Game’ had turned the tables on John Cena. In the closing moments, Cena attempted an Attitude Adjustment, but Triple H countered with a high knee strike. Hunter continued his momentum, delivering a spine buster to Cena.
Triple H set Cena for his trademark Pedigree finisher, but Sheamus came out of nowhere and Brogue Kicked him. He went for another Brogue Kick on Cena who ducked.
John Cena threw a couple of punches at Sheamus and Irish Whipped him right on his shoulders for the Attitude Adjustment. Sheamus, however, raked Cena’s eyes. The ‘Celtic Warrior’ quickly capitalized and laid Cena to waste with a Brogue Kick.

The WWE Champion wasn’t done there. He picked up a lifeless Triple H and brutalized him with a vicious Celtic Cross (Razor’s Edge). He definitely made a huge statement ahead of the championship match inside the Chamber.

Sheamus put on a terrific performance in the Elimination Chamber, starting the match against Kofi Kingston. He made it to the final three, but Triple H eliminated him, thus ending his reign at 70 days. John Cena ultimately won the match after making the ‘King of Kings’ submit to the STF.
The 2021 Chamber match is pretty much in Sheamus’ favor, considering he will be the last man to enter the fray. Do you think Sheamus will defy the odds and win the WWE Championship inside the Elimination Chamber this Sunday? Let us know in the comments below!
