I don't have problem with WWE way of book their superman faces...that's a great way to go with charisma machines like Austin or Hogan but Sheamus isn't one of those that put asses in seats, hes boring and own one of the worst mic skills out there... and being more personal his looks is atrocious can't take him seriously because he looks funny in a bad way.

Sure he wins nearly every match he's in, but he's doing his job really well. Soon he will be the face of the WWE and he is currently the most over wrestler in the business, so why the hate?
Not sure if serious with the bolded part.
On topic, I don't think most people downright hate the guy. The hate he gets stems from the nature of his superman-like booking IMO.
Personally, I'm a fan of Sheamus since he made the turn, wasn't high on him during his heel run because he seemed rushed. However, he has become less appealing to me since he won the RR at the beginning of the year largely due to his booking. I'm tired of seeing him squashing people left and right. I'm not one of those that hate him because he's a HHH guy and whatnot.
The most annoying part is that of all the opponents he's feuded with, none of them would actually elevate him to the heights WWE want him to be at. Read that he'll be feuding with Big Show next. Only God will save us from that boredom.
Did I say Austin was likeable? Austin was a complete prick, he wasn't likeable at all. But by not being likeable, fans started to like him. Being an asshole was the right character for the time period, and Sheamus just doesn't have Steve Austin's charisma. I swear they're trying to turn him into some Eddie Guerrero-esque character and be some combo of loveable goofball mixed with a cheater/somebody who takes advantage of the rules, but again, he doesn't have that kind of charisma to endear himself to people in that way.
Yeah the same thing can be said for Sheamus as well. He is OVER with the fans. FACT. Its irrelevant whether you think he is likable or not.
I dont like him anymore because of the manner of his push. I like his ring work and his mic work is good, but he looks so uncomfortable in his current role, like really awkward. WWE are just really bad at developing faces especially in this era. Bret Hart, Asutin, Shawn Michaels, The Rock never had this issue. Sheamus is just so blah. The only time Sheamus impressed me was his first few weeks in the WWE after the end of ECW/WWE.
Not all faces should be happy jolly men who make poor jokes. If Shemaus is going to be a face he should be a monster face with a dominant attitude, not a jolly green giant attitude. It just looks so forced. You woulds think the WWe learned after John Cena.
