In a heavyweight showdown on Friday Night Smackdown the Intercontinental Champion Bad News Barrett faced off against the United States Champion Sheamus.
The match was as physical and intense as many people expected as the Celtic warrior came out on top before giving everyone a sight they have been waiting to see.... Paul Heyman retreating in fear.
Both men face big matches on Sunday at Payback as Sheamus takes on Cesaro who under the tutelage of Heyman has been seemingly unstoppable since WrestleMania.
Bad News Barrett faces the winner of the beat the clock competition Rob Van Dam on Sunday as both titles will be on the line on what should be a great night.
