The former WWE champion Sheamus found himself the subject of fan scrutiny regarding his appearance, which he himself addressed ever since reemerging back to WWE after eight months. This banter continued on RAW this week with his friend and social media menace Drew McIntyre joining the fray.

During a segment where The Scottish Warrior reflected on recent setbacks, Sheamus interrupted with genuine concern, addressing Drew losing the World Heavyweight title at WrestleMania 40 due to ego and animosity towards CM Punk.

However, McIntyre’s response took a surprising turn. Instead of taking Sheamus’s advice, he shifted the focus to the fat-shaming comments Sheamus had received from some fans, shedding light on the negative discourse surrounding Sheamus’s physical transformation since returning to RAW with the line ‘Burger after Burger after Burger’ latching on with the fans on social media.

In response, the former ‘Chosen One’ shared a clip of an old Scott Steiner promo where weight was the focus of the criticism. The Celtic Warrior countered on X by reminding McIntyre of his loss to CM Punk at WrestleMania XL, jokingly attributing it to McIntyre giving Punk a “deranged lapdance.”


“After you gave him a deranged lapdance at Mania… CM Punk Kicked Your Arse.”

On the wrestling front, Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, and GUNTHER have all declared their participation in the tournament, set to be held at the PLE in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia next month. However, with the war of words brewing between the two friends, it will be interesting to see the rivalry between McIntyre and Sheamus culminate in a banger bout.
