Sheamus walked out after “Shorty G” Chad Gable forced Dash Wilder to submit to the ankle lock. Gable was attacked by The Revival after the match and it looked like Sheamus was there to help Gable but that was not the case because Sheamus took out Gable with the Brogue Kick.
Sheamus has been out of action since April with spinal stenosis. There were questions regarding his future as to whether or not he would return to the ring. However, over the past few months, he has posted photos of himself getting in the best shape of his career in preparation for his return to the ring.
The story around Sheamus’ return is that he is back because he believes the wrestlers on SmackDown have gotten soft.
