Title This: 2012 WWE Over The Limit Reaction

SheamusSheamus def. Chris Jericho, Randy Orton, and Alberto Del Rio

What I Liked:

One of the better Fatal Four Way matches in recent memory, Sheamus retained the championship here by pinning Chris Jericho. Let's break down each guy in the match. Randy Orton was really good at overcoming the odds and fighting off the opponents from beginning to end. Orton hit a great DDT like usual and kept the match going with his ability to get the crowd behind him. Orton is still so popular and his offense is still effective. Jericho did not do much in the match besides team with Del Rio to take out the faces, which was a perfect way to start the match. He hit a few Codebreakers that hit perfectly, but that was not enough for the victory. He kept in the fast paced match throughout and never took a few minutes off. Del Rio is excellent at connecting on his kicks to the opponents' head. Although he is not featured much in the match, the time he got was great. He was able to keep the flow of the match with everyone else and progress it during move sets. Finally, Sheamus looked very powerful in the match. He connected with a great Battering Ram and Brogue Kick. I really feel Sheamus has come into his own as a face and the crowd appreciates how he has grown. He is deserving of the title, and I am alright with him keeping it.

What I Disliked:

Only a few things upset me in this match. It really annoys me when Chris Jericho continues to get buried. What the hell is the point of his return? I scratch my head and wonder if he is going to do anything relevant in the next few months. I guess not because this is the fifth consecutive Pay Per View where he falls short. Also, Alberto Del Rio will never be the guy WWE Creative wants him to be if he does not get a chance to develop and enhance his character. Tell me what is different about his character now since he debuted. There is none.
