Dutch Mantell had positive things to say about Sheamus’ chemistry with one of his biggest rivals.
The Celtic Warrior Sheamus has hoped to become a WWE grand slam champion when he challenged Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship at Clash At The Castle. Sheamus took all the chops the Austrian heavyweight could dish out and left Cardiff with red marks across his chest and back. Although, in the end, Gunther again proved why he’s The Ring General and retained his title.
Speaking on the latest edition of Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Smack Talk podcast, former WWE manager Dutch Mantell praised The Celtic Warrior’s battle with Gunther and mentioned how the two men have a special connection to fans watching them compete.
“Yeah, I’m wondering if they’ll put them on the show next Friday right? Well, I wonder why they didn’t put him on the pay-per-view, they got a reason, but they got chemistry between them. I mean, they had it at Clash at the Castle and you said you found the chemistry, the people rumble. People start moving and now we gonna see it, we are able to see it. At least they have a connection to the fans because I think when they go out, when Gunther goes out and Sheamus goes out, they can lead the room, they can lead the arena,”
During his interview on Corey Graves’ After The Bell podcast, Sheamus said the match with Gunther was “one of the biggest moments [he] had in WWE.” Lighting may strike twice when he faces Gunther again for the Intercontinental Championship on October 7th on the season premiere of Friday Night SmackDown.
