Re: Why is Sheamus always so protected?
I'm not a fan of Sheamus, but that's not due to HIM, but how he is being portrayed. It is NOT his fault. However, he tries to have fun with the role given and that's a good sign.
Sheamus has enormous potential, but I haven't a clue how they should build him. No, we've had too many "monster heels". As a complete face, we're seeing it not working at all. He should be a tweener who "loves to fight" and fights faces and heels with equal enthusiasm. This is just guessing on my part.
The thing is, if they go with "Irish mistreated in America" with him and remind people of just how low on the totem pole we Irish were, he would be popular. He would be wrestling's version of Danny Greene, an Irish criminal who took on the Cleveland Mafia and was highly proud of his celtic ancestry. The opposite of this is pushing that the Irish are just hard drinking morons, Lucky Charms, and bar joke enthusiasts.
***For those of you who just don't like to read(I understand, it doesn't make you stupid, but just don't like to read print) watch the movie "Kill the Irishman" to learn about Danny Greene. For fun, count how many times the Cleveland mob tries to blow him up and fails.
