• Sheamus Has A Message For People Who Call Pro-Wrestling Fake
Current United States Champion Sheamus was interviewed by Vibe & Wrestling, and was asked what he would tell the haters who call professional wrestling the infamous F word (“fake”).
Here’s what The Celtic Warrior replied:
“Come on and step in the ring with me and I will show you how real it is. Ask my opponents.
That stigma has been in wrestling or in WWE for decades.
I’m proud to bring a very physical style. Look at my matches with Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley or Big E. It’s a different element when I’m out there.
For those people that say that it’s not real, watch my matches throughout the pandemic, especially with those guys, and you won’t be able to say it because there is nothing fake about it.”
Sheamus made his WWE main roster debut in 2009, after wrestling for the company’s developmental promotions since 2006.
