Cesaro’s back was against the wall in London. Down 3 - 0 in his best-of-seven series with Sheamus, dealing with so many nagging injuries the Celtic Warrior has taken to mocking him as a “mummy” for his liberal use of elastic therapeutic tape...
... the King of Swing had to come up with a victory to keep his hopes of winning the series, and a promised championship opportunity, alive.
Well, you can breathe a sigh of relief, denizens of the Cesaro Section. In what was described as a tense match with lots of nearfalls, the Swiss Superman managed to pull out a victory.
He won with a roll-up, which came from his reversing a Cloverleaf submission hold - and that move didn’t work out as well as the rest of the match, apparently.
Cesaro picks up his first win in the best of 7. Nearly a botched finish but the Swiss superman rescued it #WWELondon— CouchCastUK (@CouchCastUK) September 7, 2016
Good match shame about the botched finish #WWELondon— Kieron Ward (@Melmangiraffe00) September 7, 2016
Cesaro (eventually) reverses the Sheamus cloverleaf into a pinfall to take his first victory in the Best of 7 series in 17:46 #WWELondon— Daniel Richardson (@gadget80) September 7, 2016
WWE cameras were said to be rolling for this encounter, so we may have video online from that - or on USA Network next Monday for sure. Sheamus will have another chance to polish off his nemesis when match five takes place in Baltimore during the Sept. 12 Raw.
