Sheamus On How Close He Was To Retiring


During an interview with Sportskaeda, Sheamus revealed that he almost made the decision to retire due to his injuries. Here’s what he had to say:

It’s something that’s always in the back of your mind,” he said “Like, it’s no secret that I had a couple of issues physically, a few injuries, because it is physical what we do. And then my style as well, it trebles that, you know? There were a couple times when I thought, ‘Will I make it back in there?’ Especially when I got a concussion in that match after WrestleMania.

But I used that time really well, I went to physiotherapy, went to boxing, kickboxing. I got myself in the best shape possible, dropped 40lbs. I feel better, look better, and I’ve never been hungrier to get back in the ring. For me, the first ten years were just a warm-up. This is the real deal now. I’m just starting, mate. I’m telling you, by body feels amazing. I feel better at 42 than I did at 32.
