• Sheamus Says Losing To Roman Reigns Was Frustrating
During a recent appearance on WWE’s The Bump, former WWE Champion Sheamus talked about his feud with Roman Reigns in 2015.
Below is what Sheamus said:
“There’s been a lot of ups and a lot of downs in this business for me. The first time I ever felt like I was stuck in a rut was when I was in The League of Nations.
We had this group that was created together, and to me, this group was set up to make Roman Reigns a babyface. But, it was a dead-end for us.
From the moment we got together, which was a last-minute thing, it was frustrating to me [on all four men losing to Reigns]. I hit a roadblock.”
