Sheamus Reveals The “Hardest Part” Of Being a WWE Superstar


On the 15th February episode of Monday Night Raw, Sheamus won a Gauntlet match to earn the right to enter the Elimination Chamber match last in his bid to win the WWE Championship from Drew McIntyre.

Sheamus has been a man on a mission since turning heel at the start of February, turning on McIntyre and shifting his focus to winning Raw’s top prize. However, during an interview with ProSieben MAXX, The Celtic Warrior has revealed that he still faces difficulties out of the ring when the cameras stop rolling, explaining that he finds it impossible to sleep after appearing on TV.

“After a match I just try to cool down, calm down. But my adrenaline is just going so much it’s really hard for me. So, most nights after RAW I don’t sleep. I just can’t sleep. Maybe I get two or three hours, but I just can’t sleep. I’m too wound up and I’m too amped up. So that’s the hardest part for me.”

The former World Heavyweight Champion, went on to reveal his favourite WWE memory, highlighting his first WWE Championship win where he dethroned John Cena at TLC in 2009.

“I think winning my first WWE Championship match. That or my debut in ECW. both days were very nerve-racking. But they’re very special to me, I remember them very, very clearly. Obviously making your debut for WWE is something I wanted to do my entire life. Then obviously winning the WWE Championship is another one that I did really, really fast. But it was something I always wanted to do.”
