[King of the Ring Semi-Finals Match]: Sheamus vs. Neville
This is a pretty even match with Neville of course being more of the speed and Sheamus being the powerhouse. Not too much to report on as far as specifics, though. Dolph Ziggler comes out to cause a distraction and it works, as Neville blasts Sheamus with a kick to the head. He goes to the top rope and hits the Red Arrow for the win.
WINNER: Neville via pinfall
After the match, Dolph gets back on the mic and says he's there to cash in on the stipulation of the Kiss Me Arse match that they had at Extreme Rules. He charges the ring, but unfortunately, Sheamus is able to escape after the referees come out to stop the brawl.
Backstage, Renee Young interviews Bad News Barrett, who says gravity forgot Neville and after tonight, nobody will remember him. People will only remember that Barrett is King of the Ring.
Also backstage, Byron Saxton interviews R-Truth. He talks about how facing your fears head-on is dumb, so he won't do that for spiders. He'll win King of the Ring and make declarations about banning spiders.
[King of the Ring Semi-Finals Match]: R-Truth vs. Bad News Barrett
The commentary team is in the same boat as I am, talking about the funny spider things but pretty much ruling R-Truth out completely as far as winning. Truth hits some of his signature maneuvers and almost gets a pinfall, but Barrett is able to get his foot on the ropes to break the count. Barrett then hits the Bullhammer for the win.
WINNER: Bad News Barrett via pinfall

[King of the Ring Finals Match]: Neville vs. Bad News Barrett
Barrett grounds Neville, but Neville's able to hit some high-flying moves here and there. Neville starts quickening the pace of the match until Barrett hits Winds of Change for a two-count. Barrett then hits Wasteland for a two-count. Two former finishers come up short, but he's still got a Bullhammer, which he's setting up for. He misses and Neville tries to roll him up, but it's just a two-count. He follows this up with a kick and positions Barrett for the Red Arrow. Barrett moves out of the way and blasts him with the Bullhammer!
WINNER: Bad News Barrett via pinfall.
Jerry "The King" Lawler interviews Barrett for his coronation. Barrett says he'll be ruling his kingdom with an iron fist and a Bullhammer...BOOM. He gets pyro along with his throne and garb.
