King Of The Ring Semi-Finals
- Sheamus vs. Neville
Sheamus' theme hits and out he comes for our first of two semi-final matches tonight here at the WWE King Of The Ring 2015 live special on the WWE Network. After Sheamus makes his way out, out comes Neville.
The bell rings and the bigger Sheamus immediately starts to physically bully Neville around the ring, pushing him into the corners. Neville starts firing away with kicks and quick offense, trying to speed up the pace so he has a better chance, but ultimately, Sheamus slows him down and starts to take over control of the contest.
Sheamus dominates the action for a while, including knocking Neville off the ring apron and onto the announce table and hitting him with White Noise. Then, out of nowhere, Dolph Ziggler makes his way out to distract Sheamus. When Sheamus turns around, Neville knocks Sheamus down with a kick. He goes to the top for his Red Arrow finisher and hits it. 1-2-3.
After The Match:
After the match, Ziggler congratulates Neville. He tells Sheamus there was a stipulation for their match and now he's here to collect. He hits the ring and starts beating up Sheamus, but Sheamus manages to escape up the ramp. Sheamus ends up coming back in the ring and both guys start brawling. During the brawl, Sheamus' eye gets split open badly. Really badly. 100 referees hit the ring and finally break things up.
King Of The Ring Semi-Finals
- R-Truth vs. Bad News Barrett
After a bunch of plugs from the announcers and commercials and stuff, the WWE Network returns back live to the King Of The Ring special. R-Truth's music hits and out he comes for this, our second of two semi-final matches. Out next is his opponent for tonight, Bad News Barrett.
The bell sounds and here we go. Immediately Barrett takes control with a big boot to the face. He knocks him out to the floor and beats him up a bit outside of the ring before continuing to punish him back inside the ring.
R-Truth gets some hope spots and then a mini-comeback, although it isn't long before Barrett takes over again. Barrett hits Truth with his Bull Hammer Elbow. 1-2-3. We have our second of two finalists now.
Winner: Bad News Barrett

Then, we go back to the interview and Renee brings up the fact that Ziggler cost Sheamus the match tonight. Ziggler says that tonight was just a taste of what's gonna happen when he steps in the ring again. He says don't worry about me making you kiss my arse, be worried about me kicking it.

King Of The Ring Finals
- Neville vs. Bad News Barrett
Alright, it's time for the finals of this year's WWE King Of The Ring 2015 tournament. Out first is Neville, followed by Bad News Barrett. The bell sounds and here we go.
Straight from jump street, Barrett is in complete control of the smaller Neville. Neville tries to fight back for all of about five seconds, only to have Barrett knock him out to the floor. Barrett brutally attacks Neville on the floor for a bit and then brings the action back inside the ring.
Finally, Neville takes over control of the offense in this match. Just as I say that, Barrett catches Neville coming off the ropes with his Winds Of Change semi-finisher.
Neville is finally putting together some legitimate offense now. He gets Barrett down and goes to the top for his Red Arrow finisher, however Barrett is able to get out of the way. When Neville gets up, Barrett blasts him with his Bull Hammer Elbow finisher. 1-2-3. Barrett is this year's King Of The Ring.
