Sheamus: It Would Be A ‘Major Mishap’ On WWE’s Side If I Get Left Off The WrestleMania Card

Sheamus is one of the most accomplished veterans on the WWE roster; dating back to his TV debut in 2009, he’s won practically every title he possibly can with the company. “The Celtic Warrior” has also been consistently featured at WrestleMania throughout his career; last year, he defeated Riddle to win the WWE United States Championship.

But WrestleMania 38 is rapidly approaching, and the former WWE Champion isn’t currently booked for the show. Though he has been teaming up with Ridge Holland for the past few months, the two men are on the outside looking in as far as the WrestleMania card.

In an interview with the Dallas Morning News, Sheamus expressed his belief that WWE would be making a “major mishap” if the company ultimately leaves him off the card. He referenced how he’s been putting on “banger” matches for some time now; for this reason, he wants to perform at “The Showcase of the Immortals” and showcase his talent.

“… I want to be at WrestleMania, everybody does,” said Sheamus. “If I’m not on WrestleMania then that’s going to be a major mishap on WWE’s side, you know what I mean? Because I’ve been bringing it, having banger after banger matches during the pandemic and after. So, I’m on a new lease right now. But obviously want to go there, take on whoever it is – whether it’s New Day, whether it’s Usos, it doesn’t really matter to us – we just want to go in there and show people what we can do.”

As for his pairing with Holland, “The Celtic Warrior” pointed to the young star’s rugby background and called him “tough as nails.” He also stated that working with Holland has been beneficial for him.

“It’s been great,” said Sheamus. “If he listens to me, which he has been listening, I think he’s going to do really, really well. He’s got a great look. He’s got a great background. He’s a former professional rugby player, so you know he’s tough as nails. He’s got very good instincts in that ring and natural ability. He’s just got to, as I said, for anybody starting out it really is hard. It’s hard to get into this. Even coming from NXT to the main roster, it’s a different world. From what I’ve seen now, I think he’s great.

“Me and him have created our own “Fight Night” which we’ll be bringing to WrestleMania, the “Donnybrook Lane Lads” coming down for “Fight Night.” We know what we’ve got to do. We bring an aggressive, hard-hitting style. We’re afraid of nobody. He’s definitely a huge asset to me.”

Sheamus and Holland will likely aim to get on the WrestleMania card by chasing the SmackDown Tag Team Championship; time will tell whether they’re successful in this regard.
