He is not enjoyable to watch as a face or a heel. Turning him heel is not the answer, because he is just as untalented either way.
The heat he is getting isn't because fans love to hate him...they just hate Sheamus as a person, not as a character.
He is 100X worse than Cena in the Superman role... there isn't any spot this guy can realistically take and do well at. Apart from pre-show nonsense, and non major TV appearances.
No he isn't. If anything, that bore-fest Cena speech before Mark Henry came out and saved that segment is proof of this being false.
Sheamus character is just confusing and downright bipolar. Is he a fun loving, good guy who loves a challenge or is he a brutal, fight loving, sore loser?
In the ring, Sheamus's moves are far more vicious than Cena's goofy ones. Sheamus's character has no reason to be goofy but at the same time he doesn't have to be a heel either. He just needs to be a serious, good guy. Not all faces have to be perfect, good guys. In movies, video games, manga/comics, and cartoons/anime you have variety for good guys. Not every good guy is the same. This is the problem with the WWE. Everyone has to be an Irish, Mexican, Black, etc version of Cena. No face is an individual.
Also, you don't build characters for children. Smiley, good guys who overcome the odds don't reel in the majority of the market, cool guys do. Luffy destroys Ichigo and Naruto in popularity and manga sales as a main character because he is a good guy with faults. People like to see characters fail, overcome challenges, and in some cases be completely outclassed. Why do you think Bryan is still over after having lost so much? Because people are waiting for the eventual payoff that him winning the "big one" will have.
At the end of the day, children will latch on to anything that looks cool. Kids like Iron Man and Batman but they are some of the biggest jerks ever and are no way catered to children.
