Sheamus vs. John Morrison from WWE’s Raw 2010

Recap from TJ Hawke:

This match was for the 2010 King of the Ring. I believe this was the last King of the Ring tournament. There was a special guest ring announcer. I do not recognize her.

Morrison’s left arm was injured during his semifinals match against Alberto del Rio. Sheamus immediately went after the left arm. Morrison started to fight back, and he was building momentum. Sheamus turned him inside out with a lariat though. Sheamus went for Razor’s Edge, but Morrison avoided it and hit his satellite DDT. Sheamus pulled him off the top rope by the injured arm and then applied an armbar. Morrison struggled for a bit, but he eventually escaped. He hit a variation of the Pele. He managed to go for Starship Pain, but Sheamus got his knees up. Morrison injured his arm on that Sheamus block and then ate a Brougue Kick. Razor’s Edge: 1…2…3

Sheamus was crowned by Miss USA (CM Punk finally informed me who she was).

This was a really strong match and shows how good Sheamus was by 2010. I don’t remember him being this consistently good at this time, but he definitely was in the middle of a strong series of matches with Morrison. The only thing that could have put this over the top for me would have Morrison not being able to perform Starship Pain because of his injured arm. That type of selling is generally not something WWE tends to do though.

Match Rating: ***1/2
