Triple H Reportedly Called For Sheamus To Win Royal Rumble

was the last man standing at Sunday’s pay-per-view, earning himself a title shot against a champion of his choosing at 28. While Sheamus winning the Rumble sets up a series of interesting scenarios for the next several months of WWE television, it was actually who was originally scheduled to win the event.

, who has gained even more influence behind the scenes in recent months, made the call for Sheamus to win the Rumble just days before the event took place.  The two have been close friends (and workout partners) since the Irish grappler’s promotion to the main roster in the summer of 2009.

In an interview with Power Slam magazine, Triple H singled out the Celtic Warrior as a wrestler with big potential:

“The closest to me is probably Sheamus, because we always train together on the road. But I try to watch all the young guys’ matches and give them advice, if they want to hear it. If they take advice to heart and really want to improve, then I’m wanting to help. As for seeing some of myself in someone? That’s tough. Sheamus just the other day showed up at a show he didn’t have to be at. He does whatever he’s asked to do without complaining, he goes to every show and is always wanting to work: he does it all, goes above and beyond. That’s what I was like.”

was also discussed as a potential winner of the Rumble, since he cleanly put over during The World’s Strongest Man’s rise as World Heavyweight Champion and the event was taking place in his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. Before the final call was made for Sheamus to win the Rumble, Chris Jericho was the favorite, which would have set up a WWE Championship showdown against at WrestleMania XXVIII (a match that will likely happen anyways).

WWE officials contemplated last week having win the match due to the stipulation that “everyone was eligible” for the Rumble. Cena would win the match and subsequently make a tough decision: take the title shot and not face at WrestleMania.

    let the HHH hate begin

    • pwnez

      He deserves it for the most part. 

  • Jamvaan

    Normally I’d complain about HHH using his power to get his buddies or himself over but I really do think Sheamus winning the Rumble was the right call. It gives him direction, something sorely lacking since Christian got injured, and he well deserves a World Title match after the 2011 he had.

    • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

      It sounds like being “buddies” with Triple H has its benefits. I have no problem with Sheamus winning either, but I would have liked to see Jericho win. Its no secret that Triple H has never been a big fan of Jericho’s, so I think him changing plans a few days before the event like that is a bit suspicious.

      • Forceton Banfodder

        I think it was business smart.  Jericho didn’t need a reason to take on CM Punk at Wrestlemania, as he just proved, and we all knew that was going to be the case if he won Rumble.  

        This was a great way to put Sheamus over and build up a great WHC match for Wrestlemania.  Because really? Do you want to see Henry vs. Bryan again?   

      • TheKillingMoon

         Jericho isn’t staying for long so it would be pointless to have him win the rumble. He would be better off having a decent feud which will eventually lead to a great match at wrestlemania with CM Punk.

    • cappa37

       Honestly, I didn’t like him winning the Rumble at first but after hearing the fans and seeing how over he is with the crowd I kind of get the move. He had a great match against Cody Rhodes on Smackdown too (which will air tonight). I can see myself getting behind Sheamus. But we shall see.

  • dreamgod

    I don’t know what Triple H sees in Sheamus most of his matches are boring and dull

    • jimmy

      thats his opponents fault, sheamus is a great worker and he is easily a top babyface.

  • Forceton Banfodder

    I was actually happy Sheamus won.  I don’t know about everyone else, but I fully expected Jericho to win which would have just made me yawn and turn it off unimpressed.  

    With Sheamus winning they can set him up to take on Bryan at Wrestlemania which I think both guys deserve after last year’s BS. 

    It also allows Jericho to go on and win in EC and then go against Punk for the WWE title at Wrestlemania. 

    Then you have Rock/Cena and Taker vs. HHH?    

    Right there you have 4 solid matches to draw people in.   Throw in the Shaq vs. Big Show match to draw the less mainstream fans’ interest and you could have one of the best cards seen in a while.  

    And a Ryder vs. Kane No Holds Barred match might be the icing on the cake. 

    • pwnez

      Unpredictability tends to work out for the better when it’s done correctly. Sheamus had no build up at all prior to the rumble match which made me dislike him winning. He hasn’t really done anything for the past few months except get crushed by Henry during his push and then squashing Jinder 6-7 times on SD.

      It is really amazing how Sheamus and Bryan both got bumped off the ‘Mania card last year, yet one is currently the WHC and the other just won the rumble. It saddens me to think if/when Sheamus picks Bryan as his opponent for ‘Mania that Bryan will lose the title. In all honestly and merely based on my opinion, Sheamus shouldn’t be WHC. Yes, HHH is friends with him and so is HBK among other stupid reasons but he just isn’t entertaining, nor is he a decent wrestler. Alot of his stuff comes off as boring and stale.

      As for Jericho winning the title, he may have a short reign as champion come EC; only to lose it to CM Punk at ‘Mania since he may leave the company again after the PPV so he can tour with Fozzy.

      They have the drawing power definitely but alot of these matches aren’t looking as good as they sound to me. ‘Taker vs HHH for the third time sounds pretty boring, nothing new will really happen. Another thing to consider is if ‘Taker is going to be able to wrestle well. Sheamus/Bryan could be decent but i’m willing to bet that Bryan is the one who will do most of the work A.K.A. carry Sheamus. The Rock/Cena is amazing build up and will draw fans; however I don’t see it being a good match merely because they both aren’t the best wrestlers. They will have the hype that will make it seem good but again, I tend to look past that.

      MITB is another match that could be good although I dislike the twist they have going…all former WHC/WWE champions in the match.

      • Red Goblin Killing Trolls 24/7

        no offense in any way but The rock can wrestle look at some of his old matches and his match at Survivor Series. truth be told people said the same thing about the hogan vs. rock match and that turned out to be a great match. Personally I think it might (keyword: might) be a great match because cena wants to outshine the rock and rocky has a big ego. 2 big egos in one match can bring the best out of both of them but before we can say anything we just have to wait and see.

        Goblin out.

        • pwnez

          I think the Rock is decent if he has an opponent who can help him out or who can carry him. Look at Bryan Danielson for example, the WWE has even said that his skills are so good that he’s able to make his opponents look good.

          The match at S.S. wasn’t good to me but that’s not entirely the Rock fault. Miz and Truth didn’t help and the build up was pretty mediocre. Hogan and the Rock was decent for those two but it wasn’t great. Yes, they had the hype, great crowd reactions but they didn’t do much wrestling, just alot of brawling around.

          I’m strictly looking at how the Rock wrestlers and how Cena wrestles; I want to see who has the better moveset and who actually tries to exapand.

      • cappa37

         I donno if DB will have the WHC at Wrestlmania… My gut tells me Cody is going to win the elimination chamber. After watching Smackdown, it looks like they r building a Randy Orton-Daniel Bryan feud & a Cody Rhodes-Sheamus feud.

      • Forceton Banfodder

        No build up?  They’ve turned Sheamus from a hated pasty white guy into a popular and well liked face.  That took work.   And sure he hasn’t had much to do for a few months, that’s because they were focusing on Henry who’s retiring soon.  Looking at the bigger picture, Sheamus is going to be around a lot longer and like Cena and the Miz, He goes they extra mile behind the scenes because he honestly loves what he does. 

        And it doesn’t matter who you put in the ring with Bryan Daniels, of course he’s going to carry them.  He’s technically more sound and has more experience.  But you forget that losing titles also leads to more feuds.  Keeping a title on a guy for too long is boring, watching feuds for titles, that’s where the ratings are, and it makes sense to give Sheamus the WHC considering he’s a 2 time WWE champ and a former King of Ring.  I think they’ve been pushing him a lot slower than they did with say, Lesnar or Lashley because they’re worried about being burned by another rising star, but I don’t think Sheamus will be going anywhere.  

        And I agree with the Taker/HHH 3 match being uninteresting as of yet, BUT they left that hanging with a big question mark after Raw.  Maybe Triple H doesn’t go after him a third time, maybe something different happens.  I’m waiting to see on that. 

        And I don’t know about Rock/Cena, I have my doubts about what insurance will let the Rock do, but please, those two can get an audience worked up without even trying.  Imagine Punk/Cena in Chicago, only, instead of rabid Chicago Punk fans, you got rabid Tampa (Rock’s home) fans.   Shit will be off the hook. 

        Punk vs Jericho will be epic, because it won’t just be for the WWE title, it will be for the title, Best in the World.  

        Cena and Rock will be epic on draw alone.  

        Undertaker vs. ???    Is still up in the air, but consider Undertaker hasn’t failed to disappoint for the last 3 years, I don’t know why everyone expects him to now.  

        Sheamus & Bryan, will be good and well deserved for both guys, like I said, redemption for last year’s slap in the face. 

        • pwnez

          Yes, no build up PRIOR to the rumble. I never said he hasn’t gotten build up in general because that’s not true. Squashing a jobber week after week isn’t build up or at least good build up at that.

          One complaint is that WWE doesn’t have lengthy title reigns anymore. You can’t take the title off someone a month later, give it to someone else, and then take it off that guy just so you can end up giving it BACK to the guy who first had it…way too many title changes and people dislike that. It also takes away prestige of the title when it keeps bouncing around to the same guys giving them countless title reigns.

          I got that feeling too and i’m praying that they give ‘Taker a different opponent; someone he can put over at ‘Mania.

          Yeah I said they can get great build up and obviously will get good hype but that doesn’t mean they can put on a good wrestling match. I have doubts on that…lots of doubts.

          Punk vs Jericho will be great no matter what. Wrestling, entertainment, promos, mic skills…whatever, it’s going to be a win.

          Cena and the Rock have the drawing power but not sure about the other stuff yet. Then again for a match that was made almost a year ago, it hasn’t been that bad.

          Well, ‘Taker didn’t disappoint last year but it certainly wasn’t his best match. Lots of rest breaks, brawling…it was just alright to me. I want him to face a new and younger guy this year, not HHH again.

          • Forceton Banfodder

            frankly, A new younger guy would destroy Taker.  I was embarrassed (was it last year?) when Taker took on Swagger and Swagger just manhandled him like he was nothing.  

            The pool of guys Taker can put on a good match with is very shallow…  sadly, to me at least, the only guys who know taker well enough to help him through the match are Triple H and Kane.  Neither sounds interesting to me, but anyone else would require a real build up that should’ve started a couple months ago. 

          • pwnez

            It was a three hour raw sometime after ‘Mania 25 and from what I recall Swagger didn’t manhandle him at all. It was a back and forth match; realistically Swagger would dominate ‘Taker since he’s younger and in much better shape. WWE doesn’t work like that though, if they did Bryan would have gotten ripped apart against Henry and Big Show lol.

            He can have good matches with a bunch of young guys and the buidl up would have to start right now if not right after EC. They will probably go with HHH/Taker again with or without HBK involved.

          • Forceton Banfodder

            No, this was much more recent like last year when they were building up Swagger and I believe right before the Taker/Kane feud umpteen.  

            Swagger tossed him around like a rag doll.  It was absolutely embarrassing. 

          • pwnez

            I youtube’d it and all I got was Swagger vs ‘Taker from April 2010.

          • Forceton Banfodder

            That’s the one.   Swagger sold it well.  Taker just looked weak throughout the match.  

            Like I said, a young guy would just dominate him in a wrestlemania match.  This match really opened my eyes that Taker just cannot compete on the same level as guys like Swagger, Barrett or Sheamus anymore.  

          • pwnez

             That was after ‘Mania 26 and I just watched it on youtube. Swagger didn’t manhandle him at all. The match went back and forth with ‘Taker getting the upper hand at the beginning, Swagger during the middle and then ‘Taker won.

            I like Barrett’s brawling skills but if he tries to wrestle it doesn’t work. Orton vs Barrett was one of the worst matches i’ve ever seen from S.S.

          • Forceton Banfodder

            Like I said, Swagger sold it well, but he was not hurting.  When Swagger lifted Undertaker its effortless. 

            And It still holds my case.  Taker could not put on a good match with a younger guy without the ending looking like a complete and obvious fix. 

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/X2L653QU6DPTC6WQSLK26BO4YU M.E.B

            True if Y2J weren’t facing Punk, I’d think he would be someone who could too.

        • Kaylyn Owens

          “hated pasty white guy” Now that’s funny.

      • LittleJimmyGotGot

        So your mad cause they through a twist in the rumble plans? It would’ve been to predictable if Jericho won since everyone was expecting him to win, nobody was expecting Seamus to win. It sound like you’re saying him and Bryan don’t deserve to be on Maina since they weren’t last year. I think Daniel Bryan has eraned his spot and Sheamus has a strong crowd behind him. Listen to the cheers he gets everytime he comes out. Yes Bryan might lose but at least his title run wasn’t shit like Christain’s. I’m pretty sure about a year or 2 ago everyone wanted him to get his push and be on top but now hes WHC and people are pissed. Saying Sheamus is not entertaing boring and stale or a DECENT wrestler just proves you don’t know what your talking about. I bet you would’ve been ok with Cena or Orton winning again. HHH vs Taker can still be a very good match. Everyone has been questioning Taker’s health the last 3 years and he’s been able to pull it off quite well. It’s not like he’s gonna have a heart attack in the middle of the ring. Sheamus and Bryan can pull off a great mach with neither one having to carry the other. Their matches in the past have been pretty good, Rock and Cena have so much build to it, its expected to be an excellent match especially in The Rock’s hometown. There’s gonna be plenty of almost and near falls that look good. There’s nothing wrong with having a former champ mitbb. You got Orton, Miz, Ziggler, Christain, Swagger, Big Show, Mark Henry, Del Rio, Mysterio maybe Booker T. You don’t need people like Kofi and Bourne to make the match exciting. Throw in possible Kane vs Ryder along with Punk vs Jericho. There’s alot of story in this years Mania but you seem like the type who would rather have Snooki and Shaq on a card to make it seem like its good. Just shut up and see how it turns out if its bad then oh well. Your life must suck outside of watching wwe

        • pwnez

          1. No, i’m not mad that Jericho lost the rumble. He and Punk would have a great feud/match with or without him winning the rumble match. I didn’t like that they had Sheamus won even though he had little to no build up.

          2. It’s opinion, people will like Sheamus and their are people who don’t. How do I not know what i’m talking about by saying that? His moveset is dull and his promos are very boring. What’s with the random “I bet you would have been ok with Cena or Orton winning again,” crap? You’ve obviously never read a single post of mine before seeing as though everyone on here knows how much I hate Orton and dislike Cena just as much as the Rock.

          3. The HHH/’Taker thing goes both ways, buddy. A lot of fans wanna see it and alot don’t wanna see it for the third time.

          4. I disagree with the whole neither guy having to carry one another. Bryan would most likely carry Sheamus to a good match like he has done before and has with others.

          I’ve said on here before that the Shaq thing would be awful so you made no point. Your life must suck if you seriously had to point out some obvious things in a HUGE rambling paragraph.

          • LittleJimmyGotGot

            yeah its a huge paragraph cause im not gonna sit here and be and cross my i’s and dot my t’s but you obviously understood everything i siad. Yes I have read some of your posts before and obviously everyone else has to i’ve like 10 other names with “pwnez” in it that doesn’t mean just cause you say you hate certain superstars online don’t mean you sit there and cheer for them when your alone. The rumble is meant to be a surprise factor, the winner doesn’t need any build up that what make it exciting not knowing whos gonna win. My opinoin on Sheamus and Bryan, they know how to work together neith one carrying the other just What i think The whole shaq thing is referring to celebrities wreslting in general. Sorry i’m not a gramar troll next time ill make sure to number each paragraph and double space

          • pwnez

            It’s just…not interesting to read when it’s cluttered like this. I’m not reading this nonsense.

          • DestructionofBrothers

            Sheamus had recently been on a massive winning streak and has also turned the haters into followers. Dude I think you are letting your personal dislike for Sheamus cloud the fact that he was the perfect choice to win the rumble.

          • pwnez

            A winning streak that featured him squashing the same jobber over and over again (Jinder.)

            I don’t personally hate him, i’ve never even met the guy I just dislike his entire character and moveset, it’s boring.

          • DestructionofBrothers

            I remember him beating Christian a few times, Swager and others. I didn’t mean you hate him personally, just making the observation that you didn’t want him to win because you don’t personally like his character or move set.

          • pwnez

            That’s true then lol. I dislike his face character, the promos he cuts or…tries to cut and his moveset is pretty mediocre.

          • Kaylyn Owens

            Yes, because your list is so much more interesting and less pathetic.

  • http://twitter.com/TeamAwesome418 Team Awesome

    It’s a good call on Sheamus part, Since Summerslam 2011 he’s shown and worked towards where he stands today. Plus broke away from the obvious choice Chris Jericho, those were my last two picks before the Royal Rumble started. Hopefully down the line Christian somehow gets his 3rd shot and this time the right way.

  • pwnez

    I’m not surprised at all that HHH called for Sheamus to win the rumble. Workout buddies, friends with HBK, big and musclar…that’s all you need to be a star and it’s a damn shame.

    I don’t see what the big deal is with Sheamus. It’s cool that he’s hard-working and all but his matches are so damn boring. Chest smacks (when his opponents in the ropes and Sheamus just hits the guys chest over and over again,) clotheslines/irish hammer, and a few power moves, that’s his entire dull movset. His promos aren’t that good either. “Let me tell ye a story about my family back in Ireland,” or “Their is an old irish saying…” it’s just boring to listen to.

    • BrahmaBullRKO

      Well I always liked Sheamus, and I still do. During his first six months, leading up to his first WWE Title reign (which sucked), I thought he was a badass. But now he has babyface syndrome. He turns face and slowly starts getting more and more boring. I think he’s good on the mic, but his babyface promos are so stupid.

      Despite that, I still hope they do Sheamus vs Bryan, and if they do I’m looking forward to it.

    • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

      I agree. Those promos are awful. His writer should be shot.

    • cappa37

       haha plus the rope move is not legal!! u can’t hit someone when they are holding the rope… the Ref has to give a 5 count and then disqualify. lol

    That was predictable the moment he won the RR … Triple H hates Jericho from  long time and loves Sheamus its only normal to turn out this way .

    Chris Jericho winning would have sucked, it was too predictable, Sheamus no one thought hed win, and thank god Cena didnt win

  • kquickstillsucks

    For those of you that are burying this because he’s HHH’s buddy here is a news flash for you…..Sheamus is OVER. He actually gets a crowd reaction and most of the time it’s a large one. Is he the best wrestler? no, is he the best promo guy? no BUT here is thing the crowd is into him. Here is another SHOCKING news flash for some of you the WWE is not run for the pleasure of the IWC it’s run to MAKE $$$. He who gets the crowd reaction is often put on top yes wild idea I know…..

    I can hear cries from some of the IWC now “Rock vs Cena they know 4 moves between them I’d rather watch Fire Ant vs Ophidan”…..GOOD go watch that BUT stop complaining about a company that isn’t run for you. I don’t like everything I see on WWE TV BUT i am not naive enough to think they run their company just for me!

    Obviously, there is always going to be things that happen on a day to day basis behind the scenes that might not always come through on screen.

     I’m not a fan of back stage power plays, and whilst I’m a bit bummed that the Punk Jericho feud didn’t have as big a set up as it could have if Jericho had won the Rumble (when he didn’t really need it), it’s a good thing that they are having younger/newer guys, like Sheamus, winning Rumbles. 

    The newer guys on the Roster have to be built up at some point so I think that a lot of people need to accept that WWE is and has been under a period of reconstruction. Guys like Sheamus are never going to build up a legacy or any amount of serious history if they’re not put over like this.

  • vorhees666

    I almost figured this was this giant pegboard in an office with the names of a few of the wrestlers and they would just throw a series of darts at the name. Who ever had the most darts in their name would win.

    I like it. I don’t like it. Let’s see how they build up Sheamus from now to Wrestlemania!

    No, i’m the complete opposite. I actually give credit to the guys who are good wrestlers yet they get no credit for it. You’re simple a troll on here who does nothing but look for fights and makes fake accounts. I insult those who aren’t good and those who really don’t deserve to be where they are at.

    “Ignore this guy, please.” Don’t be a hypocrite, you know for a fact you can’t ignore me because you follow me on here lol.

    Me along with a thousand others who don’t want to see ‘Taker vs HHH again. You just choose to read only my negative posts, you ignore every positive thing I say, admit it. You’re a typical online troll, if anything we should all ignore you.

    “WWE officials contemplated last week having John Cena
    win the match due to the stipulation that “everyone was eligible” for
    the Rumble. Cena would win the match and subsequently make a tough
    decision: take the title shot and not face The Rock at WrestleMania.” That is quite possibly the stupidest thing I’ve heard.  There’s no way in hell anyone would have believed Cena was going to wrestle for the title instead of the Rock. The entire build up to this mania is Cena vs Rock.

  • nanu1115

    I love how people complain about short title reigns but in 2001, we had two title changes inbetween the royal rumble and Wrestlemania 17. The tag titles changed hands constantly aswell. So the whole short reign complaint has lost its substance

    • TheKillingMoon

       Tag titles are practically meaningless now because big nose claimed to have wanted to revive the tag team division but we don’t see much being done about it.

  • pwnez

    It’s called watching other promotions and learning about different wrestling styles. Hate to break your heart but their are other promotions out their that have wrestling, WWE isn’t even the best at that part.

    You don’t need to work for a wrestling promotion in order to know what good wrestling is, thought i’d tell you that before you comment back with “Oh so you’ve never worked for a company like this so you don’t know anything.” Like I said, you’re a troll on here who thinks I care what you say to me lol. I’m not going anywhere, oh and one more thing, most people on here know you’re a troll with multiple accounts. You have no life bro :) 

  • pwnez

    He didn’t own anyone lol. In your mind everyone “owns” me only because you dislike me. Someone could comment “u suck” at me and you would say I got owned. Yeah, a surprise that sucked and made no sense. Face it dude, i’m not going anywhere and nothing you say bothers me lol. I’ll always have a reply for ya no matter what. You can’t even troll without getting mad at the fact that nothing you say is getting to me. I’m better than you even online. Seriously, you’re not cool and everyone here knows it :D Keep coming up with terrible online insults, oh and stop swearing because you’re not good at it.

    Sure ya do, like i’ve never heard that one before from other trolls like you. I’m a wrestling fan, one of the best since I know what good wrestling is and I can honestly say I respect those who train hard to become good. I read articles, I watch videos from all over the world and I actually look into those with an open mind. Don’t be mad because not everyone thinks the same. The game is to make money and i’ve never questioned Vince McMahon, have I? It still doesn’t mean his product is good and i’d have a ton of people who agree with me lol. You can never make a valid point against me and again…look how angry you get all because of me. You are my biggest fan on here, I dig it.

    Too bad. Hoped Y2J would win it.

    I like this move Trips made, if it was indeed his idea. Think about it, we would have all seen Jericho winning the Rumble coming, so, just like Brodus Clay’s debut, Sheamus’s win was different and very unexpected

    Quit the bitching

  • Lilriz1987

    im not supreised i knew this.Shamus  is good i like him but he shouldnt have won the rumble

  • J BBQ

    Taker is on his last legs atm he needs to be facing veterans he trusts because the smallest botch could leave him with serious injuries which haunt him for the rest of his life, WWE dont have that many ‘veterans’ left, as for Sheamus why bother letting Jericho win he was always going to face punk at WM28, give a highend mid card like sheamus a chance, i loved it personally

    imagine if Orton was going to win…imagine the conversation…

    Triple H: Congratulations for FINALLY putting someone over Randy, I’ll let you win the Royal Rumble this year in your home town
    Randy: Yay me !!! (London Tipton clap)

    After Smackdown where they seemingly blew off the Orton and Barrett feud that leaves me to wonder what Orton will do at WrestleMania. The obvious choice was Barrett and Orton but it looks as though that feud is done. So the only match I see for Orton is in the World Title Match, meaning it will be made a Triple Threat, or Orton will win the Elimination Chamber and we’ll get a Face Sheamus vs. Face Orton. Both of those are intriguing choices. The Sheamus vs. Orton match would be great given that they have developed some chemistry and the Face vs. Face alignment could give it a big feel. However, Bryan has been great in his run as champ and I think he deserves to hold the title til Mania. So that leaves Orton in either a triple threat, or in Money in the Bank if they bring it back. Orton is in a pretty weird spot right now.

    FUC*ING WHORE! I’ll never understand this, I hate and always will hate Paul. What the fuck was wrong with Jericho winning? Which was the best thing ever?

  • Kaylyn Owens
