WWE United States champion Sheamus recently talked to Doug Mortman and Dave Lagreca on Busted Open where he discussed about a lot of interesting stuffs including his future and a possible with the Bulgarian Super Athlete Rusev. Here are some highlights;
How you feeling; because that was a brutal battle Sunday night? I feel like I was out drinking too much whiskey because of how my head feels right now, last night was amazing I had a great time, the crowd was amazing and I had a world class opponent In Cesaro. Last night I felt like I had a lot of ups and downs because of the injury, last couple of weeks I feel like I’m starting to hit my stride, to get back where I am supposed to be and last night was definitely was a highlight. I want to build on that.
Do you feel like you are back on the rise and you are going to take this US championship on another level? 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.
How hard is it when you get that push and have that injury and come back and get that momentum back? I don’t think it will be that hard for Roman. I think Roman will fit back in. Like for example when Daniel Bryan went down, Roman came in and stepped up. Maybe some new guys from NXT will come up and get an opportunity. I think Roman will come back stronger and sometimes when you go away for a bit and the fans appreciate you when you come back. When you’re on TV every week people kind of get tired of you. When Roman is gone I think the fans will miss him. Roman will come back stronger and more determined. I think Roman will come back guns blazing right where he left off.
What is the mentality in the locker room when they found out Roman Reigns got hurt? Is it a hit on the company or next man up? Well, it is like this especially with Daniel Bryan. When someone goes down with an injury you feel for the guy. What we do is so physical we put a lot of pressure on our bodies and they tend to cave in a bit. We do it because we love it. We all band together, we do shows, we work together to put on the best show. As for Roman I know he will be back and better than ever like Daniel Bryan he will be back better and stronger. Sometimes you don’t have time to think about you just got to keep it going.
When Lesnar vs Cena is over will we see Lesnar 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.
I have been campaigning for a Rusev vs. Sheamus for the U.S. Title. I would love to see that match up. I would love to do it too; 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.
