Although many of you may not agree, I feel sheamus is pretty damn good for a guy with his experience on the big stage. He's doing a great job of portraying a bad guy who isn't as good as the true top guys but always has an excuse when he doesn't win, which keeps him In the mix.
But having been following him for quite a bit I've had the opportunity to see him as a big move throwing superface headlining many indie shows in England and Ireland (check him out on YouTube and other video streaming sites).
I feel that a turn is in the not so far off future, maybe after the return of triple h and their probable feud and when it happens I believe the Celtic warrior will get over huge. With the backstage support of "vince's favourite son" (who's opinion daddy clearly values) combined with his willingness, size and age, vince and his team of lackeys must be chomping at the bit to see how far they can go with this unique looking Irishman. I'm not saying he'll be the best thing since the rock n sock connection but I think he's better off being a good guy and may just shock a few people.
Either way, like him or not he'll be at or around the top for a long time to come.
