WWE United States Champion Sheamus was a guest with Doug Mortman and Dave Lagreca on Busted Open Radio after WWE Night of Champions. Below are some of the highlights and the entire interview can be heard here.
On Sheamus bringing importance back to the United States Championship:
“That’s the plan; I haven’t had a chance to defend the title as much I was would want to. Yeah that was the plan all along. There is only one WWE World Heavyweight championship which is held by Brock Lesnar. Brock isn’t there all the time and there is going to be a situation where the US and the IC title it’s a great opportunity to push those titles. The US title represents the country that gave me an opportunity to live my dream and yeah I know that sounds cliché but its true. I am having the time of my life and travel the world and entertain the fans. That is the goal and even though I don’t defend the title but when I go out there I want to do my best because I am representing the title even though I am not defending it. I do want to defend it more and that is the goal. Stride wise, I feel like I am hitting my stride. I do not want to stay stagnant and get stale I am trying to make sure I keep moving forward and keep this US Title.”
Will we see Brock vs. Sheamus:
“Fella, I would love a crack at Brock. I am been asking for a long time for a crack at Brock Lesnar. There is no one more physical in that ring than Brock. That is something I would love to do. Who knows what the story is and where it’s going but I love to face Brock. I am looking forward to Cena vs Seth Rollins because Rollins has been on a roll as of late. That is a new fresh matchup between two great competitors. I don’t know where Dean will fit into that; a Cena/Rollins match up I am really looking forward to that.”
On Who Sheamus wants to fight next:
“Rusev has been on a roll as of late; been a slow and steady build and he put away Mark Henry last night. I am proud to hold the US Title because I am proud to live in this country. Regards to Rusev I would love to take him on; Big, strong, physical fella. I think a brogue will go really nice on the right side of his face.”
