Sheamus Discusses Drew McIntyre Facing Goldberg & Wanting To Be Intercontinental Champion

Sheamus

Sheamus has had a very impressive few months lately, and he joined WWE’s The Bump to discuss that and his goals for the year.

The Celtic Warrior has been a huge part of WWE Raw’s product lately, putting on some brilliant, hard-hitting matches and he admitted he’s enjoying what he’s doing at the moment.


“I’m enjoying my wrestling at the moment. I’m enjoying having some good bangers with older talent and newer talent that come up from NXT,” Sheamus mentioned as he began his interview. “I’m just getting in there and slugging it out and seeing what they’re made of. We’re definitely in a transitional phase with all these new Superstars coming up, who are cutting their teeth as well. I’m just having fun, you know?”

Sheamus has been heavily involved in Drew McIntyre’s storyline as of late, with the two men showing their friendship on-screen. McIntyre is set to face Goldberg at the WWE Royal Rumble, and he spoke about that match, admitting it’s a chance for Drew to cement his legacy.

“I know a lot of people – they read the stuff online, and you read the stuff on Twitter and all that – and it seems like a lot of people are angry about it,” he stated. “I know some who think Bill Goldberg doesn’t deserve an opportunity against Drew. But Goldberg definitely made an impression back in WCW when he first came out. I mean, he brought this new element, you know, destroying people in a short amount of time, and the streak. He’s also a multi-time world champion, and he does keep himself in great shape.

“I don’t think this is going to be a bad match for Drew. I think it’s another opportunity for Drew to cement his legacy by going in against people like Goldberg and ultimately beating them. Maybe, he can go in there and take him out pretty fast. It’ll be interesting to see.”

While Drew is busy as WWE Champion, Sheamus made it clear he only has one title in mind at the moment, and that is currently being held by Bobby Lashley.

“I want to get a major title on my waist again. I want to get the IC title,” he replied right away. “The IC title is still the number one priority for me. That’s all I care about right now.

“I’d also like to keep working with new and current talents. I would like to go back in with John Morrison. We had some great matches and a great feud at the end of 2010. People don’t really know how good he is. He’s just an unbelievable athlete and has gotten better in time. I just want to keep going forward and have more banger matches. I just want to cement my legacy, if you know what I mean?” (H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions)

While it’s possible that she is just there observing her future competition, WWE has largely kept the NXT and main roster talent separate during the pandemic.

Official NXT Fight Pit Weigh-In Nearly Leads To Wild Brawl (Video)

Published

The Fight Pit returns tonight as the black-hearted “Psycho Killer” Tommaso Ciampa steps inside against the only remaining member of the WWE NXT roster actually familiar with the dreaded structure, Timothy Thatcher.

NXT General Manager William Regal hosted an official weigh-in earlier today ahead of the highly anticipated battle. Ciampa hit the scales first followed by his opponent, but things very quickly got out of hand when the two came face to face.


Thatcher competed in the first ever Fight Pit, scoring an upset victory over the “Original Bro” Matt Riddle shortly before the later moved up to the main roster.

Check out the footage below. Join us for live coverage of WWE NXT tonight at 8:00 PM ET.
