Sheamus is becoming one of the more underrated wrestlers on the show, at least based on how the forum here is starting to talk about him lately.
Sheamus is definitely good in the ring. Saying otherwise just makes you look like a fool who has a terrible eye for talent and skills. Sheamus is a very good combination of brawler and power wrestler. He also wrestles with a lot of energy and makes most of his spots entertaining.
I agree that his gimmick isn't that entertaining on the mic, but that's what he's given. Not every wrestler is going to be marketed to nerds in their 20s and 30s. He's marketed towards kids, and he does a good job with his role.
My only real issue with Sheams is the heavy accent. I wish he sounded a bit more "normal", but it isn't a huge deal. When he had the "pissed off" gimmick, it wasn't a big deal. Gimmick has changed, but he's not only just as good in the ring, he's improved some too.
Sheamus is one of the top wrestlers on the show easily imo.
Plus the guy looks winded 5 minutes into his matches
Why does everyone cry about this lately?
Sheamus moves around a lot quickly and does exciting spots. No shit he's going to be more winded than a "technical wrestler" who mostly stands around holding someone or laying on the ground half the time when he's not slowly walking to his next spot or just doing slow strikes that don't look realistic since they require the other guy to stand there doing nothing for 10-15 seconds straight and just eat the slow strikes.
Whereas Sheamus is doing fast, hard, clubbing blows, lifting and throwing people all over the place, and running around the ring to smash into people and be exciting.
It requires more energy.
