IN THE RING (SHOWDOWN)
Mark Cuban + Sheamus + WWE Champion John Cena: Mark Cuban introduced Sheamus first, and then WWE champion John Cena. Cuban asked Sheamus why he thinks he will become champion on Sunday. Sheamus said it took Cena three years to become WWE champion, and it will only take him a few weeks to do it. Sheamus said he’s never been beaten, and he is obsessed with the sound of Cena crashing through a table. Cuban asked Cena the same question, and he just said “no comment.” Cuban asked if Sheamus was concerned with competing in a Tables match. Sheamus ran his mouth about destroying Cena and threatening to put him through a table twice and watch his backbone shatter. Sheamus said Cena has never faced anyone like him, and this Sunday he was gonna lose everything! Cena just sat there and said “no comment.” Cuban asked both men if they had something to say to their opponent. Cena said he had a question for Sheamus. Cena said he noticed Sheamus talked a lot, and hopes he realizes what he’s saying. Cena talked about his debut in 2002 and facing everybody in the WWE in the last seven years. Cena said he never went looking for a fight, but everyone came looking for him because he was the target. Cena said in seven years he has been beaten, battered and hospitalized. Cena said he’s been in arenas with thousands of people cheering him, and in arenas where thousands of people can’t stand him. Cena said he believes in everything he says because he is on another a level. Cena said he believes in hustle, loyalty, and respect, and in the right to say THE CHAMP IS HERE! Cena said a cheap-shot and a crash through a table only made him very very angry! Cena said this Sunday Sheamus either backs up what he says or he (Cena) will make Sheamus a footnote in WWE history.
