Sheamus Has Been Advised To Go To AEW Because His WWE Character Has Run Its Course

Sheamus (age 45) has been on the WWE main roster for 14 years now.

He has accomplished almost everything there is to accomplish in the company.

The Celtic Warrior has won all the Titles that have been there for several years & decades (so not counting the newly introduced Titles like the current World Heavyweight Championship or the Universal Championship that got unified with the WWE Championship), except the Intercontinental Championship.

During the latest episode of The Wrestling Outlaws podcast, former WWF/WCW writer Vince Russo advised Sheamus to go to another wrestling company, like AEW.

Below is what Russo said:

“Bro, I’ll be honest with you. As a writer, sometimes you get a feeling like a character has run its course.

Let’s relate this to professional sports. How many times a player that was once a great player is now in a rut, and the player gets traded because he needs a change of scenery? You hear that all the time.

Bro, I’ll be honest with you. I think the guy has run his course. Does he get a change of scenery with AEW or some new organization? Absolutely, 100%. Now he’s got new players on the team; you could book him fresh.

But I just think, to me, he’s in this category. Bro, these guys have run their course. There’s nothing more you could do with these guys. I don’t think the most creative mind could. They have been there forever. They have run their course.”

Last year at Clash At The Castle and earlier this year at WrestleMania 39, Sheamus failed to win the Intercontinental Title.

This past Friday on SmackDown at Madison Square Garden, Sheamus failed to defeat Austin Theory for the United States Championship after interference from Pretty Deadly.
