WWE Superstar and one half of the current Raw Tag Team Championship team The Bar's career is in jeopardy.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required) is reporting that the career of WWE star Sheamus' could be over.
Meltzer says that Sheamus is rehabbing spinal stenosis, and that is not a good thing at all, given the fact that the same injury ended the careers of Stone Cold Steve Austin and Edge. This certainly explains why he missed last week's Raw. It would really be a shame if Sheamus' career is over, given the fact that he's only 39 years-old, which is not old for professional wrestlers.
Shaemus has been wrestling since 2002 and ended up going on the European independent circuit in 2004, performing for Irish Whip Wrestling and British promotions. This made sense since he's originally from Dublin, Ireland.
Sheamus made the move to WWE in 2006 when he was then placed in their developmental program with Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), which is now, of course, NXT.
Sheamus made his first official debut for WWE as a villain in ECW in 2009. He was then moved to the Raw brand in October of that year.
Sheamus has enjoyed a lot of success during his time with WWE. He's won the WWE Championship three times, World Heavyweight Championship once, WWE United States Champion twice, WWE Raw Tag-Team Championship, three times, which includes his current reign with Cesaro. Shaemus has also won major events like King of the Ring (2010), Money in the Bank (2015), and Royal Rumble (2012).
Shaemus is only the second wrestler after Edge to win the three events we just mentioned. That's quite an accomplishment.
Shaemus was also one of the fastest wrestlers to win a major title. It only took him 166 days to win the WWE Championship. Right from the start, WWE decided to make him a star and it's been a complete success.
If Sheamus' career is in fact over, we would imagine that WWE will try and find a role for him outside of the ring.
