Guinness drinking ass kicker...
Plenty on here have said that since his "face" turn Sheamus has been awful character wise. I would say that I agree for the most part. He has been watered down, and I think it takes away from what originally made him popular in the first place. Granted this is a PG production, but I think they can still make his character a bit less watered down, while maintaining the "face" role.
What's wrong with a Guinness drinking ass kicker? The WWE did it with Austin, and they did it creatively. Austin's popularity with young adult males was partially due to his liking of alcohol. A good beer, or two after a solid fight was what made him "one tough S.O.B". Could this work for Sheamus. Yes, Sheamus has talked about putting a few back, but it always seemed overshadowed by something else. Austin made it very clear it was time to kick ass, and drink beer.
No, I don't think Sheamus should have fans throw him Guinness, or ask fans for a "Oh Hell Yeah", but I don't see a problem with him being a rough, hard-nosed, Guinness drinking ass kicker. Obviously this should all tie in to a character that is merely about kicking ass, just as Stone Cold Steve Austin's was. At times they have shown his aggressive nature, and I think that should continue He needs things to identify with a larger male audience. Sheamus as a "face" is fine by me as long as he is intimidating in the ring, and on the mic. Watering him down does nothing for him other than make him stale.
