Sheamus wasn’t in WWE for very long until he received a WWE Championship match against John Cena at 2009’s TLC event. He has collected many titles in WWE, except for the IC Belt, something he really wants to capture to compete his accomplishments. The Celtic Warrior won that tables match against Cena in 2009, and in very shocking fashion. Apparently, the locker room was quite upset about this as well.

While speaking to Out of Character, Sheamus revealed that the WWE locker room wasn’t too thrilled about his big title win. In fact, a lot of them were rather pissed off about it.

“People were definitely not stoked, they were definitely not stoked. There was a lot of people who were pissed off with the situation that happened. A lot of guys had been there for years and never had that opportunity. The fact that when I won [laughs], the heat! The heat! So much heat, mate, so much heat. So much heat I thought I was going to get sunburnt in the backstage area. But, you know, they say if you’re not getting heat you’re not doing your job right.”

Sheamus is currently the WWE United States Champion, and he is set to defend that title against Damian Priest at SummerSlam. We will have to see what is next for Sheamus, but he is currently rocking a protective mask due to a shattered nose. Thankfully, WWE was able to wrap that into the storyline.
