Re: Do you think Sheamus ruins good promos with his horrible mic work?
Well. Sheamus does make some segments hard for me to watch(especially since his Irish stories are very stereotyped), however it is not mostly to do with his Mic-Work.
Sheamus can actually cut rather decent promos. He showed that throughout his heel run, and he has had some decent promos as a face. Working with Wade Barrett and Christian, who are better on the mic, he has shown what he can be. The same goes for when he worked with Daniel Bryan(who has also vastly improved). I think the biggest problem is who he is currently working with. For the past 4 months he has been working almost entirely with Alberto Del Rio. Who as we all know is very hit and miss on the mic. Not to mention, 4 months will make anything get stale, especially with the typical Super-Babyface booking/writing Sheamus is currently recieving(think back to Punk/ADR, where there was only 1 memorable promo where Punk really tore into Del Rio's character which had a horrible consequence for Del Rio).
Anyway, here is some quotes from him that are enjoyable:
The video isn't bad but Sheamus has been around for about 3 years, the fact that his greatest hits consist of a small 4 minute video is troubling for a guy as pushed as hard as he is.
