Ahead of his in-ring return to WWE, Sheamus spoke with WWE’s After The Bell podcast about coming back to wrestling after a prolonged absence. Below are some highlights with a H/T to Fightful.com for the transcriptions.
“I think everybody on the main roster is dealing with injuries. It’s definitely been a lot with me. Obviously, my neck was one of those rumors. Honestly, the last seven months I’ve been off, I’ve used it really well. I’ve been in the gym really hard, focusing a lot on my fitness, well-being, diet, nutrition, I got a chance to go around the globe. Time off is great. A little bit of time off can heal the body, God knows, from my perspective, (being a) WWE superstar, there is no harder job. There’s no one who works as hard as we do and no athlete who can do what we do. I have a YouTube channel, Celtic Warrior Workouts, where I do workouts with different WWE superstars. I was focusing on that quite a lot. I learned an awful lot from that channel and I started to apply a lot of those techniques that I wasn’t aware of before into my workouts. It definitely helped change the game for me. I’ve never felt better. I feel better now than I did ten years ago,” he said.
It is unknown when Sheamus will be returning to the ring, but he did appear in a vignette to tease his return, so it will be in the near future.
