Former WWE United States champion Sheamus recently spoke to the Independent of the UK. Here are some highlights;

Returning home:

 

“It’s always great to come home, it really is. It just kind of resets me every time I come home and reminds me how it started and how far I’ve come, and it’s kind of like the same thing where you’re so busy that you sort of get lost in the day-to-day stuff but you come home and it really puts everything into perspective.”

 

“This is where I started, I started in the UK and in Ireland wrestling, did my first couple of tryouts here a couple of years ago, well actually more than a couple of years ago back in 2005, 2006 and 2007 so yeah, it’s very special for me.”

 

Wanting a rematch against United States Champion Rusev:

“I obviously want a rematch. I want to prove I can beat Rusev. That’s important, we went back and forth the other night – it was a long night – but it was cool the way it was on the network. It was like the first of its kind, to broadcast that match on the network and it shows how powerful the network can be with so much opportunity and options that the WWE can put any match on there, anytime, anywhere, exclusively for the fans that subscribe to the network.”

 

Possibly being in a UK WrestleMania main event:

“That’d be fantastic. At Wembley, the Aviva Stadium or even Croke Park in Dublin, that would be amazing. I’d love nothing more, but I’ve got to get some more momentum first. I just lost the US Championship so I’ve got to get some momentum behind me, get everything back into perspective and I think I’ve got to come a little bit more ruthless and selfish to go out there and put Sheamus back where he belongs, back in the main event.”
Here are some highlights of Sheamus’ early interview on the Daily Star of the UK;

 

Which celebrity he would like to face:
“Hugh Jackman would be a good fight. I’m a big fan of his and I know he’s a fan of WWE – he’s been to see the shows a couple of times. I think he’d be great in the ring.”

 

Did he ever think he would be where he’s at?

 

“I always had high hopes. I always believed I would be successful, you have to have that mentality. I always wanted to be bigger and better. I was very confident.”

Staying in shape:

 

“I do cardio, lift weights, work on my legs, my arms, my chest, plus my back, shoulders and triceps. I do about two hours a day. Some wrestlers don’t like to do cardio as they feel it takes away from their strength but at this stage I’m not too worried. I like to stretch for a while as well, it’s something I’ve been doing for a couple of years and will hopefully make my career longer.”
