Yes. What does that have to do with anything? Sheamus can't draw either. Reactions mean nothing, it's about whether you can DRAW and Sheamus can't. All the pops in the world aren't gonna mean anything if it doesn't lead to a business increase, and in fact, SmackDown ratings are at an all time low with Sheamus as champion. I don't exclusively blame Sheamus, since SmackDown is becoming more irrelevant by the year but it is what it is, regardless. Sheamus is like Orton, if you push him, the people who go to the shows will cheer him because he's a babyface and they're already there, but they won't specifically come to see him like they will for Cena or whoever. And really, Cena is the only draw. Everybody else including Sheamus could be replaced tomorrow with other stars and it wouldn't hurt them.

And Sheamus was pushed even HARDER than Del Rio, so of course he would get over, and even that took MONTHS. He got NO reaction as WWE Champion, until he dropped it and fought Triple H at Mania.

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".
