Sheamus has been off of WWE television for more than four months and recently admitted he has no idea what the future holds for him.
When discussing some of WWE's top stars of the past decade, the usual suspects rear their heads. The likes of John Cena, Randy Orton, Brock Lesnar, and Roman Reigns. Someone who doesn't tend to get the recognition he deserves is Sheamus. The Celtic Warrior's list of accomplishments in WWE is an incredibly impressive one. It includes a Royal Rumble win, four World Title reigns, and a spell as Mr. Money in the Bank.
Most recently, Sheamus has been ticking off a few more milestones in WWE's tag team division. Since forming The Bar alongside Cesaro, the pair has gone on to win Tag Team Championships five times. Unfortunately, The Bar appears to have been dissolved, and WWE is yet to officially explain why that is.
What we do know is that Sheamus has been sidelined with an injury since shortly after this year's WrestleMania. The last time the Irishman appeared on WWE TV was two days after the landmark event. Despite not wrestling, Sheamus has still been showing his face for WWE. Most recently, the former WWE Champion was out in the Philippines on a promotional tour.
Sheamus admitted to International Business Times that he currently isn't sure what the future holds for him in WWE. "I don’t know what the story is with my future. I have no idea, I honestly don’t," he explained. He also added that he has been keeping up with the product, and that he misses it. As far as his injuries go, there has been talk of spinal stenosis, the same issue that forced Edge and Paige into early retirement.
However, it has also been reported that Sheamus isn't suffering from the issue in the same way that Edge and Paige have been. For starters, he has apparently wrestled since being diagnosed with the condition. We certainly hope we haven't seen the last of Sheamus in the ring. If we have, we imagine WWE will keep him around. He's a terrific performer with a wealth of knowledge ready to be unloaded on the next generation.
