Sheamus, as noted last week, missed the TV tapings because he had a case of the flu. They had scheduled to start a Sheamus vs. Rusev feud for the US title. Sheamus was in the building for the show in Orlando last week but was not able to wrestle. He was not at the TV tapings this weeks because he was in Ireland.
There has been talk of having Rusev beat Sheamus for the US title as a way to get more heat on Rusev and Lana. That still may happen at some point.
