Sheamus has expressed his disappointment at not being booked for a marquee match at the upcoming Money in the Bank event in London, England. Despite his consistent track record of delivering excellent matches and receiving strong crowd responses, Sheamus is currently not scheduled to compete at the event.

In an interview with, the Celtic Warrior voiced his confusion over the decision, particularly considering the impact he had at the previous UK Premium Live Event Clash at the Castle where he faced Gunther in what many consider to be WWE’s best match of 2022.

“I mean, selfishly I should. If it’s with Ridge too, that’d be great. But listen, last time we were in Wales (for Clash At The Castle in September), I tore the bleeding roof off the place. Nobody came close! Roman, Drew didn’t come close – and it was built around that match. Nobody came close to (me and Gunther).

“Every time I’m in there, I blow the roof off the place. Doesn’t matter if it’s in Cardiff, Wales, doesn’t matter if it’s in Lexington, Kentucky, MSG, the reactions I get are insane. Every time I get out there, I put on a banger. I should be the first person they’re thinking of – especially when a pay-per-view comes to Europe like that. So yeah, a hundred percent, I should be in there.”


While Sheamus may not be booked for the event, his tag team partner Butch has earned a major opportunity by being one of the participants in the men’s ladder match. Sheamus expressed his happiness for his teammate’s success but emphasized that he remains hungry to be involved in events like Money in the Bank.

Sheamus made it clear that he is not complacent after his 16-year career in WWE and is determined to continue performing at the highest level. He believes that given his experience and accomplishments, he should be the top name considered for events like Money in the Bank, especially when the pay-per-view is taking place in London, close to his hometown of Dublin.

“At this stage, 16 years. I’m not just sitting back and going, ‘I’m happy to be here’, and collect a paycheck. I’ve never been like that. For me, it’s always been about competitive side, the performing aspect. Everything else doesn’t even come into my mind.

“Everything I’ve done the last 16 years, I should be the number one name that they think of, especially when a pay-per-view comes to London, a stone’s throw away from Dublin, it’s insane! Especially when I cut my teeth there.”

While Sheamus awaits his opportunity, he and Ridge Holland are set to compete in a tag team gauntlet match on SmackDown for a chance at the Undisputed Tag Team Champions, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. Although the exact timing of the title match is unclear, Sheamus remains focused on proving himself and continuing to deliver memorable performances.

As for his former tag partner and rival, Drew McIntyre, there have been rumors of a potential return as discussions regarding his creative involvement continue to circulate.
