This was an elimination match for Sheamus’ WWE Championship.
This just felt like a very lazy WWE main event where nothing of importance or significance was accomplished. The WWE title had switched around so much in the preceding years that even a title change here felt like a nothing moment. There was just a complete lack of creativity to this match despite everyone working reasonably hard and the eliminations being spaced out enough to prevent any of them from the feeling of coming too quickly or too slowly. The effort was fine, and the crowd responded fairly well to most of the match. It just made me feel nothing. (**)
