Mick Foley discusses the controversial end to the Best of 7 Series

The RAW General Manager, Mick Foley, is in the ring. We see still photos of the absolutely brutal match between Cesaro and Sheamus that ended when the referee determined neither man could continue. Foley says at Clash of Champions last night, Sheamus and Cesaro culminated their Best of 7 Series in a thrilling match that ended due to medical stoppage. Their Best of 7 Series ended in a draw. Foley says he’d like to invite both competitors out here.

Sheamus is introduced first, and he comes out with his left knee and right elbow all taped up. Sheamus limps down to the ring. Cesaro is out next to a big reception. Cesaro adjusts his neck, which has to be hurting following the botched suicide dive. Foley starts to talk, but Sheamus cuts him off. Sheamus asks how this is even a discussion. When Mick Foley made the Best of 7 Series, he said that the man that the most physically dominant would get a championship opportunity. Cesaro says that’s why he’s here. Sheamus says Foley told them both that. Sheamus tells the crowd to be quiet. Sheamus says they beat the hell out of each other last night and doesn’t want a “wishy washy” response. Foley said the man that was the most physically dominant would get a championship opportunity. If that’s not him, he doesn’t know what series Foley was watching. Cesaro says he was standing in the ring last night ready to fight while Sheamus was scurrying away in the walk of shame. Sheamus says he was dragged out by four people and wanted to fight. Cesaro says he could have got through them. They go back and forth over who is the most dominant before Foley shouts, “Enough!” Sheamus says he is better than Cesaro and is done with him.

Foley says Sheamus is right… and so is Cesaro. They both proved they could be physically dominant and brought out the best in each other. Foley cannot in good conscience say one was a winner and one was a loser. After thinking long and hard, he’s going to grant both of them championship opportunities. These are not separate opportunities. They’ll be sharing the same championship opportunity. They’ll be contending together for the WWE Tag Team Championships! Cesaro says he just went through a Best of 7 Series and won’t share a ring with him. Sheamus also argues the decision. Foley says they don’t have to like it, but that’s his decision. If they decide to do it, they’ll face the winners of the following match.


The New Day makes their way to the ring, as Cesaro throws his microphone down in disgust. Cesaro gets out of the ring and leaves. The RAW Tag Team Championships will be on the line, next.
