Sheamus Thought His WWE Career Was Over In 2019
Sheamus thought he was done
Sheamus has revealed he thought his career was over in 2019.
The Celtic Warrior suffered a concussion in April 2019 during a six-man tag team match on SmackDown and the former WWE Champion was on the shelf for the remainder of the year before returning in January 2020.
Speaking about his time off with Comicbook.com, Sheamus admitted he thought he was done in the ring.
"Yeah, I did mate. I did. I'm not going to lie. I had a really, really bad concussion, and I had some other issues going on. But, I went through the physical therapy. I got myself in great shape. I went to the dietitian Jerry Ward so I could get fast and carry the ice out. I was determined to get myself in the best shape possible. Not just from a cardio perspective, but also physical and to also fix what's going on with me," Sheamus said.
"I worked really, really hard to get back in the ring. I've never felt better. I feel better than ten years ago when I debuted, just because I know a lot more about my body. I do a lot more dynamic stretching. Ask any of the guys in the locker room. I'm there doing all these mad stretches and rolling around. All these dynamic movements and stuff. Just warming myself up and it's definitely... Since I've been back, no problems whatsoever. I literally feel better than I did when I debuted though, which is crazy."
Sheamus now finds himself on Monday Night Raw and he has been praised throughout 2021 as one of WWE's standout performers.
