"Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…"
-We open things up with Carl Edwards peeling into the arena in his stock car. I've seen this somewhere before. Is this a rerun? Instead of Carl Edwards getting out of the car we have Hornswoggle, and Kelly Kelly is in the ring to introduce Carl Edwards. Edwards comes to the ring accompanied by official guest host chaperones The Bella Twins. Edwards does his trademark backflip into the ring, and immediately goes for the cheap pop calling Louisiana the home of the Super Bowl Champions. Edwards says speaking of Super Bowls next Sunday is the Super Bowl of NASCAR the Daytona 500. He says as guest host he has a lot to live up to, as we saw Kyle Busch and Joey Logano here before. He says he has something they don't have, and that's a friend in the WWE. That man is John Cena. That doesn't exactly impress WWE Champion Sheamus as he decides to come out for a word with Edwards. Sheamus says his Super Bowl is in seven weeks, and its Wrestlemania. He says he plans on walking into Wrestlemania WWE Champion, and that means he has to win the Elimination Chamber. As WWE Champion he demands that Edwards makes him the last participant in the chamber match. He doesn't want Edwards doing favors for his buddy John Cena just because he got beat up by Batista last week. He says Edwards isn't the guest host of Raw, but a guest on his show. He will do what Sheamus says, or he won't make it to Daytona. That brings out Christian for a rather random interruption. Christian introduces himself to Edwards, and says NASCAR is blowing up in Canada. It makes him pretty happy they were denied a WNBA franchise. Sheamus asks what Christian is doing here, and he says Edge said he would face Taker or Sheamus and didn't mention him. He was offended at first, but it all made sense once Vince made his announcement cancelling ECW. Sheamus says that makes him a lame duck champion, but Christian thinks Sheamus is the one who is lame. He throws a few insults at Sheamus's look, but Sheamus says the only thing funny is that Christian will be unemployed in a few weeks. Christian says that's where he's wrong because in two weeks every ECW star is a free agent. He thought the peeps on Raw were starting to miss him, so he figured he'd show up and challenge Sheamus tonight. He says they're both here, both champions, and both born without last names so it makes perfect sense. Edwards gets a referee and the match is on right now!
Sheamus vs. Christian
Sheamus takes Christian over with a headlock, and follows with a knee to the gut. Sheamus charges into the corner, but runs into a back elbow from Christian. Christian goes to the second rope but is caught by Sheamus who delivers a fall away slam. Sheamus delivers a clothesline sending Christian to the floor and we head to break. We're back with Sheamus still in control with an armbar, but Christian quickly turns the tide hitting the ropes. They collide with shoulderblocks, but Christian gets the worse of it and Sheamus retains control. Sheamus charges at Christian who pulls down the top rope sending Sheamus to the floor. Christian hops over the top rope and delivers a crossbody all the way down the floor. Sheamus comes back to ram Christian's shoulder into the ringpost, and drives him into the barricade. Back inside they go as Sheamus begins to work over the injured shoulder. Sheamus grabs a hammerlock, and follows by driving Christian's shoulder into the top buckle. Christian comes back with a back elbow, and delivers a missile dropkick to start a comeback attempt. Christian gets dropped to the apron, but comes right back to drop Sheamus's throat across the top rope. Christian hits a back elbow off the top rope, but gets caught on a springboard. Christian hammers out, and then dodges the pump kick but runs into a double axehandle. Christian comes back with a bicycle kick in the corner, and delivers a DDT for two. Christian goes for the killswitch, but Sheamus counters and dumps him to the apron. Christian goes to the top rope, but gets caught and Sheamus fires the injured shoulder to the post. Sheamus delivers the pump kick, and finishes Christian with the Razor's Edge at 9:43. No matter how hard they try no one is buying this goof's title reign. Case in point they had to bring the Champion of the show that is getting cancelled over to put him over…and the crowd still didn't buy it.
Winner: Sheamus (Pinfall-Razor's Edge **3/4)
