First up is Drew McIntyre, who is getting a big push by the company right now. He’ll be challenging WWE Brock Lesnar for the strap at WrestleMania 36.
“I might be biased here but obviously Drew McIntyre’s been doing great on RAW now. I really like him. He’s a big lad, he’s a strong lad. I started in the business with him. He started before me but I got in there with him about 2005 I think it was and we’ve been best mates since then.”
Sheamus also picked Rusev, who hasn’t been seen on WWE television in a few weeks after his feud with Bobby Lashley and Lana ended. While Sheamus selected Rusev, there is speculation that Rusev could leave the company once he’s current deal expires this year.
In fact, it was reported this week that he was removed from TV due to him not signing a new deal.
“I think Rusev is doing great too. The storyline, a lot of people have been sh***ing on the storyline but, at the end of the day, people are watching it, you know? People are invested. You can say the same with a lot of things – Coronation Street, EastEnders.”
“I had to sit through that stuff at home when I went back to the gaff. I ended up watching Emmerdale, Coronation Street and Cold Feet in a row. That’s harder than any match. That’s harder than any Ladder Match sitting through those three shows! But yeah… they’re watching it and Rusev, you know, the guy’s got a lot of personality. So, I think there’s a lot of guys coming through.”
Finally, Sheamus picked Elias and noted that there are a lot of guys out there now coming through, new talent that he’s never wrestled before.
