• Sheamus On Why He Almost Quit WWE In 2016

In the 2016 Draft, Sheamus was the last man Drafted. This didn’t sit well with the former multi-time WWE Champion and he almost quit the company.

Below is what The Celtic Warrior said during an episode of WWE 24:

“The Draft came and I had just been WWE Champion up until the end of December [2015]. And I was the last pick on the [televised] Draft.

I’m thinking to myself like, ‘How have I gone from ‘The Guy’ to the last pick of the Draft?’ I was like, ‘This is a serious fall from grace.’ I was so angry, man, I was ready… I kind of felt like ready to walk [out]. I really did.

I felt like, ‘What am I doing? I’m not enjoying this anymore.’”
