Former WWE Champion and United States Champion Sheamus has had a great career in the company, winning multiple championships during his time in the company. He is also not afraid to share his thoughts on WWE’s decisions. It seems he has a huge goal in mind.
Sheamus has certainly accomplished a lot during his time in the company and has earned the respect of his fans and peers alike.
While speaking on WWE’s The Bump, Sheamus revealed that he wants to become the first ultimate grand slam champion in WWE. He added that is why he wants to challenge Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Intercontinental Championship.
“One title away from becoming the first-ever Ultimate Grand Slam Champion. I know what you are probably thinking. You are thinking, ‘Edge did all that. Edge has won everything.’ But the truth of the matter is, it is just a bleeding sham. Because Edge won his United States Championship when it was WCW. So that is automatically disqualified. So I am now on the verge of something fantastic.
Shinsuke Nakamura is going to hide behind that Rick Boogs lad, he’s going to hide behind a little broken hand, a sore hand, some cuts on his hands, or pick an opponent like Sami Zayn, who let’s be honest does not look like he has had a shave in the last ten years.
I don’t care. I just want my opportunity at the Intercontinental Championship. I said it when I went to SmackDown, and then I got drafted to RAW and the
title stayed on SmackDown. It’s been a year, I became US Champ. It was awesome. It was great. I had some banger match after banger match, and now I’m back on SmackDown. That was the one thing that I was watching when the Draft was happening. I was watching where that Intercontinental title was going. Once it stayed, I was like all eyes on that SmackDown title.”
We will have to wait and see whether Sheamus will end up defeating Shinsuke Nakamura for the intercontinental championship and become the first ultimate grand slam champion in WWE.
