WWE Smackdown star Sheamus, who along with Cesaro defeated The Usos on Smackdown this week to advance in the Tag Team tournament, recently spoke with TMZ. Below are a several interview highlights:
On Conor McGregor ever signing with WWE now that Ronda Rousey is in the company:
“I think anything is possible mate, with Ronda Rousey in the WWE. Ronda’s killing it, so the door’s open for anybody, ya know? Right time, right money…When someone shows up, they show up. That’s pretty much the way it is on a week-to-week basis”.
On possibly teaming up with Conor McGregor in WWE:
“He’s a different weight class than me. I’m already in the greatest tag team of all time with Cesaro and The Bar!”
On how Ronda Rousey is doing in WWE so far:
“She’s going great. When I first met her a couple of months ago I was blown away by her personality, her attitude. She loves wrestling, she’s a great asset to the women’s division. She’s tearing it up. She had a great match at WrestleMania. Anyone who brings eyes on the WWE, and who brings attention, and brings more people in seats is a benefit to WWE. That’s how it works mate, ya know? Show business.”
Sheamus also talks about his return to WWE Smackdown this week, his match coming up against The New Day, and possibly teaming up with McGregor in WWE. You can hear more from Sheamus in the video player below:
