Sheamus was ripped by WrestlingObserver.com’s Bryan Alvarez during their post-Payback pay-per-view recap on Monday morning. Alvarez was upset over Sheamus kicking Jeff Hardy in the face and knocking his tooth out.
Alvarez said, “I understand that accidents happen in wrestling. They happen every day in wrestling. Every day in wrestling, a high spot is occurring [and] something goes wrong. It’s not really anybody’s fault [because] it’s an accident.”
Alvarez noted that Hardy was on his hands and knees and was not moving around and gave his face to Sheamus so that he could kick him. Alvarez added, “Sheamus had a non-moving target. All he had to do was kick him in the chest or the shoulder or whatever. This f**king guy pulls his leg back and kicks Jeff Hardy right in the f**king mouth and knocks his tooth out.” He added, “Jeff wasn’t moving a f**king muscle. This guy kicked him in the mouth and knocked his tooth out. If this would have been the first time or a rare incident then fine.” He added, “Sheamus was the guy that ended the career of Daniel Bryan. Daniel Bryan was laying there, giving the guy his head and Sheamus booted him as hard as he f**king could [and] gave him a concussion and that was the end of Daniel Bryan’s career.”
There have been stories from other wrestlers in the past about Sheamus being stiff in the ring. Alvarez, who was an independent wrestler for over a decade, continued, “you f***ing suck at your job. I would never wrestle you in a thousand years for no amount of money. I have no respect for him as a worker. I would not hire him and quite frankly, if it were my company then I’d fire him.”
Alvarez noted that Jinder Mahal hurt Finn Balor a couple of weeks ago but at least Balor was moving. I should add that Mahal does not have a history of hurting people. Alvarez noted that Matt Hardy was also busted up and was bleeding towards the end of the match on Sunday.
In 2o15, Sheamus responded to reports about Sheamus being reckless in the ring. He wrote the following:
Reckless? Ha Ha… Your idols are spoiled lily livered runts. #AreYouNotEntertained
