ESPN.com has a new Q&A online with Sheamus. In it, he discusses facing Daniel Bryan for the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania XXVIII this year despite being bumped off the card last year. Below is an excerpt:
Jon Robinson: You were originally supposed to fight Daniel Bryan at last year’s Wrestlemania, but then you got bumped from the card. Are you excited to finally get out there and show what you guys can do?
Sheamus: Absolutely, it’s poetic justice. That was an incredible low for me last year. I went from Wrestlemania 26 against Triple H, to being a two-time WWE champion and King of the Ring, to not even being on the show. That was a hard pill to swallow. But in a way, when I look back, that was great because when I walked out of that building last year, I was more determined than ever to start fresh the next day and come back in the top spot. Things happen for a reason, and maybe at the time, that’s not the reason you want to hear, but you need to use it as motivation. If people are unhappy about The Rock stepping in, they need step up their game and use it as motivation to get back next year. If you show what you can do during the course of the year, you can grab one of the top spots at next year’s Wrestlemania.
