Re: Why Does Everybody Hate Sheamus?

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.
Absolutely nailed it right there. Sheamus is the epitome of fast forward material. Other than the points above, he has all the hallmarks of a HHH 'coolest frat guy in the room' character build too which I simply cannot fucking stand; stealing cars, no selling your opponent and taking absolutely nothing seriously.
With any luck he'll be offered some bad film roles and disappear up his own arse and far away from a wrestling ring sometime soon.
