I DIDN"T ASK FOR THIS
- Sheamus was not backstage at the WWE Royal Rumble on Sunday and it was another creative decision that has delayed his return.
We noted during WrestleMania XXX season last year that WWE had plans for Sheamus to face Daniel Bryan in New Orleans. Plans were changed when CM Punk left the company and Bryan ended up being pushed to the WrestleMania main event instead.
Word coming out of the Royal Rumble this week is that plans for Sheamus vs. Bryan III at WrestleMania are back on for this year's event in Santa Clara. The two wrestled to a No Contest in a Lumberjack Match at WrestleMania 27 and then Sheamus defeated Bryan in 18 seconds to win the World Heavyweight Title at WrestleMania 28.
Plans still call for Sheamus to return as a heel and it looks like he could be getting involved with Bryan upon returning.
