Re: What da hell happened to Sheamus?
I think that part of it has to do with what has happened with Orton. Orton was the top Happy-Go-Lucky face of the brand and then things happened which caused him to stay gone for awhile. So they decided to stick a bigger rocket on Sheamus and push him to the moon as a bigger face than he already was.
I have liked Sheamus since he made his debut, but he is much better as a heel or a face with at least some attitude. I'm still waiting for Triple H to come out and they be buddy buddy after the last time they interacted on TV, which Sheamus "injured" him and bragged about it for months.
