Sheamus Talks About His Relationship With William Regal, His Goals In WWE & More
Sheamus recently spoke with the The Norfolk Navy Flagship. Here are some highlights:
Who he looked up to as a kid:
“I was really a big fan of WWE as a kid. I used to love watching “Mr. Perfect” (Curt Hennig), “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Bret Hart. I’ve always been a fan of numerous Superstars and have taken inspiration from different guys in different ways, but those are really the four I loved watching as a kid.”
Relationship with William Regal:
“One of the first guys to really text me or call me up was William Regal. He offered to help me and have me travel with him. We have the same sense of humor, same pop culture background. We got on right away from the start. He’s been a great help to me by watching my matches and critiquing them. There have been others like Triple H … Arn Anderson as well. I’m always motivated to pick the brain of people who have been so successful. Great number of minds and talents in WWE and they’re all at your disposal. It’s definitely helped me to progress faster than I would have on my own. … It’s about drive – never be happy with what you do. You can’t rest on your laurels because you’re only as good as your last match. There are a lot of hungry Superstars ready to come in here and want to knock you off your spot.”
Future goals in WWE:
“Foremost, I want to win the World Heavyweight Championship back from The Big Show. I will get that opportunity in Richmond at SmackDown TV. I would love to do a WrestleMania match with The Undertaker. I don’t know how many Mania matches he has left in him, but I would love to be the guy who breaks that streak.”
