Well, this was mind-boggling and insane, but I doubt most of poeTV will have the context to appreciate this.
The crowd certainly didn't seem to appreciate it.
you're right, and that's the only reason why i'm not voting rather than giving this a one star
You know, I STOPPED watching wrestling because John Cena had the belt for like 6 years straight. If they had done this sorta stuff back when I actually cared, I would probably still care today! Oh well!
I haven't watched WWE programming in a while, but holy crap, that's unexpected. (Also, he's the Celtic Warrior, his name is Sheamus, and his theme music is the same generic butt rock as everyone else? They couldn't spring for Flogging Molly or a bowdlerized Pogues or something?)
Nu-metal and rap-rock are the only things that WWE's doughy, Cena-loving fan-base can appreciate.

I could tell he was really Irish (and not just a gimmick) just by looking at him because he's so WHITE. Ah, we are a pale breed of human right enough.

How did they determine the winner? It looked like they both kind of just fell off that post And irish dude fell harder and further than the Cena dude. Nothing about this makes sense.
I assume it was determined by who got put through the table?
seriously...HOW DOES SOMEONE WIN A TITLE
I thought you had to pin somebody for three seconds in wrestling?
I guess it was a "tables match", with the stipulation that whoever gets thrown through a table first loses the match. ECW used to do shit like this a lot.
They're only doing this so Cena can get revenge, guys.
So that guy is basically Fit Finlay?
He mopped the floor with Fit Finlay on Raw a few weeks ago
I have no idea of the context, but my only observation is that it felt like Sheamus was waiting for something to happen when he was hoisting the belt. Either he got a very different reaction than he (or the writers) expected, or Cena was supposed to get up and pummel him for the belt after.
But I have no clue about wrestling, so no vote.
The paying crowd at this show most likely consisted of fans who paid to see John Cena win his match and jaded smart marks who hate Cena... Both were shocked by this not being the usual predictable outcome. It's a brilliant work honestly.
Boy, brilliant is a word that gets thrown around a little too freely.

I like wrestling in the sense it was something I grew up with and I like how candid wrestlers are about it now. But a video of a match ending the way it was scripted? With no botches? No moments that unintentionally break kayfabe? Come on, guys.
Although a centuries old celtic warrior becoming a modern day mid-card professional wrestler is kind of a fun idea.
I am reporting this video to the WWE *NOW*
Not if the Resubmit Hopper has anything to say about this!
Six hours, nineteen minutes, right ascension, fourteen degrees, twenty-three minutes declination... no sighting. (of Cena_Mark)
He's too busy putting on Venom makeup and pretending to enlist.
I want wrestling to go back to being silly and fun. Not silly and boring.
Ring of Honor takes itself pretty seriously. I would say Chikara / Pro Wrestling Guerilla / Dramatic Dream Team / HUSTLE.
I reserve my five stars for anyone who can point me to a website where I can see Sheamus naked and no, John Cena doesn't count.

Wait are pretending pro-wrestling is real now?
No -- absolutely no one is pretending that pro wrestling is real, faggot.
OMG HE WON THE BELT!!!

Withholding stars until this is overdubbed with the Demoman's voice.
