Ahead of his match against Cesaro in the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Live at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City on September 9, pro wrestling superstar Sheamus said that he would focus on his wrestling career after a brief showbiz stint as one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
“I’d love to be part of a movie now but I have too much schedule in WWE,” Sheamus said in an interview released on Tuesday.
As the third professional wrestler representing Ireland in WWE, Sheamus is only concerned with the Raw and on their individual careers. “I’m looking to climb a mountain again, so to establish myself,” he added.
Inspired by his favorites Ultimate Warrior, Macho Man, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon, Sheamus is keen on creating his own legacy.
Asked about his thoughts on new talents entering the main roster, Sheamus replied: “This is the initial beginning of something fresh and good, but it’s up to the guys themselves if they want to adopt to change and keep themselves fresh.”
The 38-year-old wrestler shared his love of football and the discipline required to remain in top form, “I love playing football, and I love going to the gym and the people encouraged and helped me to get here. My mind and body were physically and mentally formed, and I also want to do this.”
Sheamus, who was bullied as a child, shared his thoughts on bullying. “There’s no room for that stuff anymore. Especially in social media, where there’s a huge difference. You can go home and can’t ignore it because it’s all there on your phone and your computer. It needs to be pushed out, no shame or no talking to teacher just to have it,” he said.
