When asked if his feud with Drew McIntyre could have been a Wrestlemania match, Sheamus replied:
“That was the plan, you know, I was hoping. Obviously different plans from WWE with Bobby and Drew. The whole idea was I got pushed and got that match at FastLane. You know, I wanted it to be at Mania. Just because of the story as well, of us coming together in Ireland and Scotland and wrestling.
“So, yeah, it was definitely something I wanted to do. It didn’t happen. And then I went and became United States Champion. So, it all worked out pretty good for me. It’s not working out so well for Drew, though.”
Sheamus also discussed his achievements in the WWE and how proud he is of the success that has come his way.
“I’m proud of every title I’ve won in the WWE. Obviously, the only one I haven’t gotten my hands on is the Intercontinental Championship to have all of them. Of course, I haven’t won the Grand Slam. I’ve pretty much won everything else.
“But yeah, I really feel like I’ve won a lot. But I’m never really concerned about the past, I’m always concerned about the present, where I’m at now. It’s easy to sit back and go, ‘Oh, I did all of this stuff and all this.’ For me, what keeps me hungry is that I have the mindset where I’ve never won anything. [Like] I’ve never accomplished anything.”
