Hopefully, this means the Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio feud is over for good.

Tonight's (Sun., Sept. 16, 2012) WWE Night of Champions pay-per-view (PPV) event in Boston, Massachusetts, featured Sheamus defending his world heavyweight championship against Del Rio for what felt like the eighth straight PPV in a row.

Just like every other time, he won.

They teased multiple times with two lengthy Cross Armbreaker submission holds that Del Rio would force a tap but the outcome seemed to be a foregone conclusion when Booker T came out before the match and reinstated the Brogue Kick.

Naturally, that's what Sheamus used to win. Dolph Ziggler did not come out to even tease cashing in the Money in the Bank briefcase, so that's still to come. Maybe those two will have a legitimate feud over it.
