WWE Superstar Sheamus recently spoke with Express.co.uk. During their conversation, the former United States and WWE Champion opened up about his role in Becky Lynch getting hired by WWE. He also addressed her rise to the top as ‘The Man.’
“I actually talked to Becky, I had a conversation before her tryout,” Sheamus recalled. “I think I got her in touch with whoever it was, I got her in touch with the right people. I just made a connection, she did it all herself. Sometimes things can get misconstrued or whatever, like I got her in WWE … That’s not true at all, but I gave her the information and passed it on until she got the opportunity. She did it, she took it.”
“That Was Just Her”
When it comes to Becky Lynch‘s rise through the ranks to competing in the first-ever women’s main event at WrestleMania, Sheamus believes the success is well-deserved. He said he always knew she was a phenomenal talent who was very good at making the most of every situation and opportunity.
“When that Becky Lynch revolution started, the whole ‘The Man’ thing, that was just her,” he explained. “They weren’t doing anything with her but on Twitter, on social media, she just vented, she said what she wanted to say and it just started picking up steam.”
He continued, “She’s a really good friend of mine and we’ve always had conversations; she asks me advice, I ask her sometimes. I think it’s phenomenal, I think it’s well-deserved, I think she’s very, very smart [and] a very intelligent person. She knows exactly what she’s doing and she can back it up in the ring, so she deserves everything she gets.”
Sheamus has been missing from in-ring action for some time since sustaining an injury in April. He has vocalised his ambitions of winning the Intercontinental Championship upon his return. If he did, he would become a WWE Grand Slam Champion.
