Sheamus Praises Ziggler After Match, Jericho’s Countdown, Sunny
– After retaining his World Heavyweight Championship Sunday night at No Way Out, a weary Sheamus shared his thoughts on both the victory and his opponent, Dolph Ziggler.
“He pushed me as far as anyone has pushed me as World Heavyweight Champion,” The Great White says to WWE.com. “And I’ll be honest, there was a couple of really close ones out there where I had just enough to kick out. Make no mistake about it, I love to fight, Dolph Ziggler proved to tonight that he likes to fight too, and I’ll be honest, he’s this close away (makes hand gesture) from breaking into the next level. My hat’s off to him.”
He continues, “But again, I walked away at No Way Out as World Heavyweight Champion, and tonight, I think I’ve deserved a few more pints.”
– Counting down to five days remaining on his thirty-day WWE suspension due to denigrating the Brazilian flag at a WWE live event in São Paulo on May 24, Chris Jericho referenced King Kong Bundy’s tendency to demand a five count for pinfalls whenever he dominated his opponent in a squash match: “I…WANT…5!!!!” -King Kong Bundy @RealKKBundy
