Re: Why Does Everybody Hate Sheamus?
He has a horrible, goofy look that isn't possible to take seriously, he's terrible on the mic and he follows WWE's main event babyface formula to a T, ie, take ABSOLUTELY NOTHING and NO ONE seriously, ever, at any time, regardless of whether they're a proven star or not, just stand there and laugh at them like an idiot, and crack stupid, childish jokes tailored specifically for 8 year olds. This is why feuds don't draw anymore, the babyfaces absolutely refuse to sell their opponents. Sheamus is one of the worst offenders. Him standing there cracking jokes when he's right next to his world title opponent, a 7 foot, 400+ lb giant who's won world titles on every brand he's been on was absolutely cringeworthy and kills any interest in the program.
I'm not gonna say he wins all the time, because if it wasn't him, it would just be somebody else, but he certainly doesn't deserve that booking and such a lackluster talent getting booked in that fashion only serves to anger people.

We can't believe that someone with your skin color has the level of education that you have, so your gimmick is just gonna be that we put you on tv and brag that you went to school. Cause that's basically the gimmick that they gave him, how much more racist could his gimmick have been? Am I missing something here? What was the reason that the people were supposed to get behind him, other than the company just saying "phht, well, he's...in school".
