Sheamus has seen significant main roster success in 2021. Sheamus captured the United States Championship at WrestleMania. Sheamus’ success comes after an injury that made him take time off to heal. According to Sheamus, he thought he would never come back from that injury.
Sheamus suffered a terrible concussion in 2019. The concussion sidelined the Celtic Warrior for an extended period of time. While recovering from his injury, Sheamus thought his in ring career was over.
Speaking with Comicbook.com Sheamus admitted that he thought he was finished as a wrestler. Sheamus said he owed his return to getting in the best physical shape of his life.
“Yeah, I did mate. I did. I’m not going to lie. I had a really, really bad concussion, and I had some other issues going on. But, I went through the physical therapy. I got myself in great shape. I went to the dietitian Jerry Ward so I could get fast and carry the ice out. I was determined to get myself in the best shape possible. Not just from a cardio perspective, but also physical and to also fix what’s going on with me. I worked really, really hard to get back in the ring. I’ve never felt better. I feel better than 10 years ago when I debuted, just because I know a lot more about my body. I do a lot more dynamic stretching. Ask any of the guys in the locker room. I’m there doing all these mad stretches and rolling around. All these dynamic movements and stuff. Just warming myself up and it’s definitely… Since I’ve been back, no problems whatsoever. I literally feel better than I did when I debuted though, which is crazy.”
With Sheamus’ return and success on Raw, it appears the injuries that plagued his future are no longer a major issue. The former multiple time WWE Champion may just have another main event push in the future.
