- The LA Times had a short interview with World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus, who was promoting last night's SummerSlam pay-per-view. During the interview, Sheamus was asked who his favorite opponent was.
"Right now it would have to be a toss-up between Alberto Del Rio and Daniel Bryan," Sheamus replied. "I'm in a feud with Alberto Del Rio right now, and we are having some good matches and myself and Daniel Bryan have a lot of history too, with matches for the U.S. title and the world heavyweight championship."
