Sheamus Says He Fought Hard For Drew McIntyre WrestleMania Match

Earlier this year, Sheamus turned on then-WWE Champion Drew McIntyre after months of the two being aligned as friends on screen, leading to a series of matches on Monday Night Raw and at the Fastlane pay-per-view.

Many fans were expecting Sheamus to win the WWE Championship inside the Elimination Chamber, allowing the feud between the two to culminate at WrestleMania 37. Both men recently spoke to BT Sport, where Sheamus revealed that he did push hard for the match to happen.

The Celtic Warrior said:

“Yeah, we really were hoping this was gonna be WrestleMania. That’s where we felt the feud should basically climax, should come to an end at WrestleMania. I fought as hard as I could, we both did, to make that happen, but you do what you can do. Make it the best way you can.”

McIntyre chimed in, saying that he believed the pre-match video package and story was ‘WrestleMania worthy’. He said:

“If you see the pre-match video, you see this was really WrestleMania worthy. This story, this real story we have…we can come back around, there’s next year’s WrestleMania and we get the fans back it will be new again, but it was certainly a disappointment, we’re gonna have to do it again.”

The feud ultimately ended at WWE Fastlane, with Drew McIntyre defeating Sheamus in a No Holds Barred match. McIntyre instead went on to challenge Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship at the show in a losing effort, while Sheamus successfully captured the United States Championship from Riddle.
