• Sheamus Going After The Intercontinental Championship?

During a recent Q&A session, former WWE Champion Sheamus answered questions regarding his in-ring future, his return, future after WWE & more.

Below are the highlights:

On if he’s retired from WWE:

“‘I’m not yet retired.’ I’m just repeating what he said. I just repeated what he said, guys. Sorry. Am I not allowed to do that? Sorry. I’m just — I’m playing around. I don’t know what the story is on my future. I have no idea, I honestly don’t. I just know that through my off, I’d had to channel through my passion. I’ve been watching WWE, you know, following it as much as I can, and just, you know, I miss it. I miss being in the ring, but I’m keeping myself busy.”

On going after the Intercontinental Championship:

“If I get back to the ring, that would be the first thing I would go after. As of now I am still listed as a SmackDown Superstar and the Title is on SmackDown. But as of now, I have no access to the Title, but it’s definitely the one I want.”

On possibly having a future as as actor:

“I like to act. The Rock, well he is okay. Definitely not as buff as me. John’s (Cena) got that hairdo and of course there is big Dave Batista. But I do love acting and that surely will be next for me.”
