CM Punk vs. Sheamus from WWE’s Main Event TV 2012

Recap from TJ Hawke:

This was a world champion vs. world champion match booked for the main event of the first episode of Main Event. Paul Heyman accompanied Punk to the ring.

They started out slowly. Punk eventually cut off Sheamus by dumping him to the floor. Punk worked him over in a rather dull fashion for a while. Sheamus started to make a comeback. Punk cut him off again before a commercial break. When we came back, Sheamus blocked a tope suicida and then made a comeback. Punk kicked out of the air raid crash. Sheamus kicked out of the Savage Elbow. Sheamus then reversed a GTS into a Cloverleaf. Punk got to the ropes and then avoided the Brogue Kick. Sheamus crashed into an exposed turnbuckle, and Punk pinned him with a handful of ropes: 1…2…3

Sheamus cut a promo after the match. Said Punk did not earn any respect tonight. He said he will beat Punk next time.

Considering these are two of my favorite WWE wrestlers in the last ten years, this might be one of the most disappointing matches for me in that time period. I expected a shit finish, but I didn’t expect them to not put in the best effort possible before it.

Match Rating: **1/4
