Only a few days ago I would happily defend his no-selling and inability to do anything interesting as part of his gimmick, and pushed safe working (much like Orton and Cena), however I have recently come to the conclusion that although he is clearly pushed to no-sell certain attacks, he doesn't take any decent bumps.

Perfect examples are, well, pretty much every match that goes longer than 5 minutes. Sheamus will 'fall' to the outside, often landing softly, or even more often, landing on his feet.

TL;DR, I lost respect for Sheamus. My opinion hardly matters but I figured I'd post it.

Re: I've lost all respect for Sheamus.

Wow really?

3 Sheamus Hate threads is one week. That's incredible. I think he's the only person outside Cena and Punk to reach that.

He should be thrown off the hell in cell onto the Spanish announce table.Will that then make you respect Sheamus?

If it were a hate thread I wouldn't be nice.

Now cry about Cena bumping on his sides and ass like a Diva for the past 5 years. Only fair.

Because I don't mention Cena it doesn't mean I think Cena's fine at taking bumps and selling. It just means he has nothing to do with Sheamus.

Re: I've lost all respect for Sheamus.

Like you said, this is how he has been booked and a part of it is them trying to keep him fit, free of injuries. They can't afford to have Sheamus get injured now after investing so much time into him. This is not Sheamus' fault.

Half and half. Even Cena will take the occasional fall-out-of-ring bump, whereas Sheamus often takes these bumps as soft as he possibly can. I don't think that, even though he is told to no-sell as part of his gimmick, he is told to purposely land softly.

OP places a lot of investment into how a wrestler bumps.
As I should.

At the end of the day, Sheamus is one the most dull world champions of all time.

Re: I've lost all respect for Sheamus.

I have to admit I absolutely love Sheamus' wrestling style and moveset but just about everything else about the guy is Cena-Lite which makes for some cringeworthy television unfortunately.

I was happy when he won the Royal Rumble but lost my respect for him after Wrestlemania

He should drop the title soon or else things could go worse from here

The entire concept behind Sheamus' in ring gimmick is great. Out of the ring he pulls terrible contradictory promos and in the ring he doesn't sell as well as he can.

Does Sheamus intentionally no-sell injuries or what?

Whats with the guy no selling injuries, attacks/offense? Is that done intentionally by him?

A lot of top faces no sell, so it's not just him, that's traditional top star booking. Although the kickouts at one are intentional cause nobody else kicks out at one, ever. That's just him being a dick to his opponents.

He's the John Cena of Smackdown. What were you expecting?
