Quote "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, who writes a column for Fighting Spirit Magazine, offered his opinion on reigning World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus during a recent issue while discussing WWE's World Titles and how their importance level has never been lower. Though Austin considers the Irish grappler talented, he doesn't feel Sheamus is ready to be champion.

Austin wrote, "Sheamus is a big talented dude, no doubt about it. Can he get to where the company wants him to go? That remains to be seen, and there's a lot of work required from both him and the company in order to jump to that superstar level. He's doing fine for the amount of time he's been in the business, and there is no disrespect intended, but there are so many aspects that go towards making a guy draw money with the title."

I am agreeing. Sheamus doesn't seem to work hard enough to get himself higher than he is right now, and the creatives seem to be lost on where to develop him. Again, the issue is him not being developed anymore. He feuds with random people, he wins, and that's it. But it doesn't get him more over. He is just stuck and he ain't getting developed. He needs feuds with guys that can help him get better, and that will push him to the right limits. He ain't do his best, and you can feel it every time he steps to the ring, or every time he talks on the mic. You just don't feel like he is giving us 100%.

Unfortunately I think he is giving 100%, that's the problem.

I like Sheamus but he just doesn't seem to have the natural ability to become a top headlining talent, he's a solid worker but his promos come across as scripted and unnatural, his material is also very cheesy at times, its like WWE want him to be the 'Irish Cena' and I can't see a lot of fans warming to that.

WWE are trying hard to get him to succeed as a top guy on a par with the likes of John Cena, but going forward I see him sliding into a high mid card role where I think he will find his comfort zone.

I don't get where this has come from at all, I can easily buy Sheamus as champ and main eventer and hes one of WWE's top names now.

Yeah, his kid friendly character sucks but thats the problem you have to accept while watching WWE, most their shit ain't going to be aimed at you. It works well for him, and as an all-round talent he's one of the best in the business right now.

Seems more of a "things were better back in my day, we were allowed to swear!" kind of thing by Austin. Fuck that guy.

But theres only so much he can do as a performer. I agree that hes giving 100% but creative needs to take some of the hit because its really all on them to provide him with gripping stories and fierce rivalries.

Latley hes been doing the same boring shit. They give us 2 great matches with Barrett but thats not enough. He has a 3rd one and it ends up being the worst of the 3. I get where they were going with it, selling Shows interference, but it just irks me they cant flesh things out more.

Sheamus can be great heel. But as a face it would seem hes stuck in a rut.

I think WWE are content with Sheamus' character provided he has the support of the kids, they are trying to market him to the percentage of the audience that cheers for Cena, if he can succeed in that I think WWE will keep him in the main-events.

He's not as comfortable and natural as John Cena on the mic, but he is a more solid worker who's in-ring offence looks much more hard-hitting and realistic.

opportunity missed with the whole thing that happened the other week on Raw. Sheamus could have become more serious, even if just for this feud, so we're going to have to like it and lump it sadly.

For truth with a slight edit
 

He has been so slack selling for so long that it no longer features on the radar for why Sheamus annoys me but, that fucking cloverleaf, He can't pull it off, his moveset doesn't allow for a submission finisher.
The Texas cloverleaf doesn't fit in with his brawler style. I don't think he needs a submission finisher, but if he does... then it should be something simple like a full nelson.

I agree that selling has never been one of Sheamus' strengths. However to me it seems like he's been slagging off even more. I noticed it with his program with Damien Sandow. Sheamus came away with the big win, but he could have done a lot ot make Sandow look good in defeat.

Maybe Sheamus isn't keen on his current position of just flowing around the top of the midcard. He's been drifting since losing the WHC last fall. He's far from being buried or jobbed out. But he still isn't the main eventer.

I saw a video with Scott Hall where he said something about don't become too good at putting others over or that's all you'll ever do. That's sounds like the old Kliq attitude. But that old Kliq attitude really pissed off a lot of people back in the day. Although Sheamus won't have any problems with taken a bit of that attitude as long as Triple H is still his buddy.

Sheamus is a boring ginger cunt that is basically the irish john cena - he seemed to have a bit of an edge to him as a heel and im not sure why hes went OTT as a face but his character did a.complete flip

The thing is he probably shifts loads of merch and u see all of the kids with their stuck on ginger beards and eyebrows so hes obviously popular with that demographic

His lack of selling is one of the things that irritates me least but maybe he is annoyed at his position on the card but he hasnt done anything of note for months and his gimmick is so stale

Quote Alberto Del Rio has backstage heat right now, but he's not the only one.
 
Word is Sheamus has heat for his lack of contribution to the Money In The Bank WWE Championship ladder match. Sheamus was said to be "the only pain in the ass" in the match because he was not very helpful in putting it together. He seemed only worried with his own spots.
 
source: F4WOnline.com
I can believe that from just watching him the last couple of months. He's had no real programs with anyone. His bit with Damien Sandow was barely a month long. He doesn't seem to have anything on the horizon either. 

His "injured" leg routine on Raw & Main Event were so weak. He couldn't bother to sell for himself. He'd limp about for a couple of minutes and then forget it. Then 5 minutes later he'd go back to selling it. Doesn't he realize that he's supposed to be creating sympathy for himself? It's not even about making the other guy look good.

Quote - Many fans near the pre-show panel at Extreme Rules last night noted that Sheamus appeared to doze off during the R-Truth and Xavier Woods vs. Alexander Rusev match. There was a chant started for Sheamus to wake up


Talk about building backstage heat.... I don't see this going very well regarding his career. Might as well have started career suicide.
