Says McGregor can join WWE Cruiserweight division

Makes Statement

Sheamus talks about the possibility of McGregor getting involved in pro wrestling.

As far as I know he’s still going to be fighting for a really long time. I mean there’s a Cruiserweight Division now, so maybe McGregor can join the Cruiserweight Division. But I really don’t know…it’s really up to him. He’s obviously got a lot of charisma, I don’t know…if Vince McMahon feels that there’s an opportunity to make money he’ll be here.

Seamus wants McGregor WWE fight

Makes Statement

Sheamus says he would like to fight McGregor in the WWE ring.

It’s entertainment, it’s WWE. I’d do anything. I’d fight anybody, any time, any place, anywhere. I think the gift of the gab would definitely get him through there. I think he’s kind of tailor made for that sort of situation. It’s very hard not to get Conor McGregor to talk. I think he’d do great.

BANG Showbiz interview


Sheamus talks to BANG Showbiz about the popularity of Total Divas and interest in creating a similar reality television program featuring the superstars instead of the divas.

I think there should be a new reality show for the guys, I think it would be interesting. It should definitely happen now we have the WWE Network. The bigger the Network grows the more content they are going to need and a reality show would definitely take off, especially if it had all the behind-the-scenes stuff.

U.K. Independent interview


Sheamus talks to the U.K. Independent about returning to Europe with WWE, losing the United States Championship to Rusev and enjoying how the match was aired exclusively on the WWE Network.

I obviously want a rematch. I want to prove I can beat Rusev. That’s important, we went back and forth the other night – it was a long night – but it was cool the way it was on the network. It was like the first of its kind, to broadcast that match on the network and it shows how powerful the network can be with so much opportunity and options that the WWE can put any match on there, anytime, anywhere, exclusively for the fans that subscribe to the network.

Daily Star interview


Sheamus talks to the Daily Star about staying in shape and his dream match with a celebrity.

Hugh Jackman would be a good fight. I’m a big fan of his and I know he’s a fan of WWE – he’s been to see the shows a couple of times. I think he’d be great in the ring.

Miami Herald interview


Sheamus talks to The Miami Herald turning heel and the prestige of the United States Championship.

I’m not opposed to going either way to be honest. I enjoy both sides of the coin. I’m sure it will come around again [for me to be a heel], but I want it to be for the right reason and right story. My goal right now is to keep moving forward and put on the best matches I can. I want to keep getting better and let people into who Sheamus really is.

Between the Ropes interview


Sheamus talks to Between the Ropes about his match at Night of Champions against Cesaro.

I had a lot of fun fella. It was definitely a blast. I needed that a lot because I felt like I’ve been just starting to hit my stride a lot more since I came back from my injury and needed that. So far, it’s been the highlight of my return to WWE

Busted Open interview


Sheamus talks to Busted Open Radio about Roman Reigns and when he returns from injury.

I don’t think it will be that hard for Roman. I think Roman will fit back in. Like for example when Daniel Bryan went down, Roman came in and stepped up. Maybe some new guys from NXT will come up and get an opportunity. I think Roman will come back stronger and sometimes when you go away for a bit and the fans appreciate you when you come back.
