Dave Meltzer discussed Sheamus’ issues with spin stenosis on today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio and mentioned that WWE is protecting Sheamus in his matches.
Meltzer pointed out that Sheamus was barely taking any bumps at all while working the WWE Live Events in Dubai. The company also had him in six-man matches as a way to protect him.
“They are definitely protecting him right now,” Meltzer explained.
As previously noted, spinal stenosis led to the end of former WWE Superstars Steve Austin and Edge’s careers and Sheamus’ career could be in jeopardy. Sheamus has been rehabbing the injury while also working WWE events.
