– Shorty G took to Twitter this afternoon to address Sheamus ahead of their match on tonight’s WWE SmackDown episode, which is a rematch from last Sunday’s Royal Rumble Kickoff pre-show. The Celtic Warrior won that match.
He wrote, “Tonight. Redemption. He’s called me vermin, a rat, and recycles Corbin’s old short jokes. This is a complex man I’m dealing with here [face with rolling eyes emoji] Anyway, they’re all the same exact size when I lay them out flat. #RiseOverSize #SmackDownOnFox”
Sheamus also responded to WWE’s announcement on the rematch and wrote, “Did he get out of his cage again? [rat emoji]”
