Sheamus defeated WWE World Heavyweight champion The Big Show by disqualification Sunday night at Survivor Series. What did we learn from his big win?

The WWE is not yet ready to move on with this feud, and that’s a good thing.

Unlike Sheamus’ earlier feud with Alberto Del Rio, which fell flat, this one is pushing the boundaries of the PG Era.

Their match at Hell in a Cell was a brutal contest and surprisingly good. This past Friday on SmackDown, the two cracked each other on top of cars in the parking lot in a brawl that would have easily fit in the Attitude Era.

At Survivor Series, Sheamus brutalized The Big Show with repeated chair shots on top of the entrance ramp.

Sheamus is no stranger to fighting tough, having played both Gaelic Football and Rugby (Sosofficial.com).

He was trained at the Monster Factory in New Jersey. Run by former WWE wrestler Larry Sharpe, the Monster Factory has pushed out guys like The Big Show, Bam Bam Bigelow, Kevin Von Erich, Tony Atlas and King Kong Bundy (Monsterfactory.org).

Sheamus’ win over The Big Show sends a very clear signal: There’s no end in sight.
