Sheamus Talks Timetable For His WWE Return, Plans For When He’s Back & More

The following are highlights from a recent interview with WWE Superstar Sheamus:

On the status of his shoulder: “It’s feeling pretty solid. I’m still a little while away from coming back, but it’s a whole lot better than what it was when I first had the surgery, trust me. When I woke up after surgery, I don’t think I ever experienced any kind of discomfort or pain like I did then. And, even though I’ve come a long way from that, I’m still going to rehab every day.”

On a timetable for his WWE return: “There’s not, no. I just have to keep going. Some days are better than others with my shoulder. I do have six anchors put in my labrum; I tore it in half, so it was pretty major surgery. I also tore my right shoulder as well, and even though I didn’t have surgery on it, I’ve been rehabbing both shoulders to strengthen the muscles around the labrum. My main concern is that I don’t want to come back too early, and then something happens and I’m set back. That would be the worst possible scenario, so patience is the key.”

On what fans can expect when he returns: “At this stage of the game, I’m just tired of sitting at home. I’ve been frustrated and impatient. I want to come back the way that brought me to the dance —come back aggressive, no-nonsense. I’m fired up and ready to go; I’m ready to take no prisoners. I have to go back out there and remind people who I am, and I have to show the new members of the WWE Universe what they’ve been missing.

Before I got injured, I was kind of spinning my wheels. Now, I’m ready to take back what’s mine. I don’t believe there’s anyone in WWE who is tougher, more determined than me. Sure, I got a little sidetracked, but I’ve had plenty of time to think and reevaluate the situation.

Now, I’m ready to just tear through anybody who stands in my way — I don’t care if it’s Daniel Bryan, John Cena, Randy Orton or Big Show. I don’t care who it is — The Wyatt Family, The Shield, I don’t give a damn who they are. I’m taking no prisoners, and if I go down, I’m dragging everyone with me because I want to be WWE Champion again. Ain’t nobody gonna stop me.”

      Lol took the bait. “Talks timetable fir return” only to read “There’s not, no.”

        Me too. I even thought about this before I clicked on it, but I still did.

      no plans for Sheamus?
      look what happens when you don’t spend everyday sucking up to HHH.
      I for one never saw much in sheamus especially as a face. he hasn’t been missed on my tv.

    • Alan Lopez

      Please comeback soon if not HHH will choose him to win the rumble ????

    • PushZigglerDamnit

      I think it’s pretty obvious at this point that Sheamus will be in the rumble. He has to make a return by then if he wants a WrestleMania paycheck. As long as he doesn’t win the rumble I have no objections to this.

      Sheamus returns, Brogue kicking the hell out of Cena and Orton. No contest. Next night on Raw, Sheamus is announced as the “Newest Face of the WWE”, officially making Sheamus heel. It is then announced that the winner of the Royal Rumble will compete for the vacant Undisputed WWE World Championship. The winner of the rumble will face the winner of the 6-man elimination chamber at EC at WM30. Meanwhile, Cena feuds with Sheamus until EC. Orton, who’s still a heel, begins his feud with Roman Reigns, who’s now face (w/ my assumption that the Shield is no more), which culminates at WM30. At WM, Sheamus will face Undertaker, who Triple H wants taken out, Cena will be doing something with Hulk Hogan (no one wants that, but it’s likely), Orton vs Roman Reigns, and CM Punk (RR winner) faces Bad News Barrett (EC Winner) for the Undisputed Title.

        I’ll have what he’s having.

      Take as long as you need to. No need to come back to quickly, or at all. You arent missed and there is no gap where you could help pick up slack.

      i think sheamus can bring great competition to the ring and i wouldnt mind him in a main event its just that when he speaks nobody cares he needs to come back as a heel and kick some serious ass

    • Godzilla2J

      I dont think we will be seeing Sheamus until next summer but heck he might come out during the Rumble but it seems like a pretty serious injury and WWE is doing fine without Sheamus so just let him sit on the sidelines til we least expect it but missing WM 30 for Sheamus is gonna suck for him hes not a bad worker at all .

    • yrabadi

      hope he comes back as a heel. his babyface was a d!ck anyway.
