He is mainly aimed at the child audiences, the kids love the guy, they all do the Sheamus pose.

Personally I think Sheamus works best when he is a badass heel and just tears shit up, like Mark Henry.

He's booked with a cartoonish/ larger than life persona a la guys of the 80s like hogan, savage, etc. I miss mid-late 90s characters that seemed like people you could pass walking down the street. It's more believable IMO. Vince has done a complete 180 from his famous introduction of the attitude era video and sheamus is proof of that. Plus the guy looks winded 5 minutes into his matches

I'm a big Sheamus fan, and yeah, he's too cheesy. I wouldn't mind if he acted this way some of the time, but he needs to be more serious and arrogant. Wrestling is like politics: if you're not outlandishly claiming to be the best and grab attention, then its as if you lack confidence altogether. The only clean good guys should be the few ones who are actually GREAT at it, like John Cena. All this criticism applies to Del Rio as well. Friendly 90% of the time just isn't shocking/interesting/unpredictable.

You are right the kids dig him. Nothing wrong with that at all, let them have Cena/Ryback/Sheamus, but outta those 3 Sheamus is all around a better worker then those other two and he can wrestle a classic match with more than half the roster. It would be foolish to think hes not good in the ring when really he's near great for his size. Best big man in WWE since The Undertaker IMO.

He is as underrated as they come.

Sheamus is a pretty well rounded talent. Very good heel and an ok face. One of the best workers currently in the WWE, I'm still a fan.

Which is funny because of the three, he's the one I find most intolerable right now.

I don't think creative realizes that when all the top faces come out smiling and kissing babies, it buries the show. It makes none of them seem serious about the competition.

Sheamus is very good in the ring but definitely works better as a vicious heel. He's incredibly bland as a face and he has been horribly booked as a face most of the time too.

Of course Sheamus is corny. He is appealing to children right now. That's exactly what his boss has told him to do. He has a job, and it's selling the character. I agree that he should at least try to be more serious than goofy. There is something in between goofy, and serious, but he just hasn't hit that spot just yet. It's no different than goofy heel Angle, or wise ass Stone Cold trying to make funny comments. Sheamus has to fine that perfect mesh. If the WWE wasn't so PG they could probably get away with some adult humor.

He's just an annoying, goofy character who can't be taken seriously, despite his size. Sure his matches can be OK but he's just not very likeable and it's tough to get behind him.

JUST LIKE I FOIGHT! AND ANUDDER THING WE SHARED IN COMMON, WE'RE BOTH GREAT AT KICKIN' ARSE! (*pounds chest 12 times)


Yeah. Sheamus' character is a tiresome stereotype. Whenever he shows up on screen, it's a struggle to stay awake.
