A former WWE Champion believes he should be the first person they think of for Money In The Bank in London.
On Saturday, July 1, WWE will present the Money In The Bank premium live event at London’s O2 Arena.
This marks the first premium live event in the United Kingdom since Clash At The Castle 2022 in Cardiff, Wales. That event featured GUNTHER facing Sheamus for the Intercontinental Championship in an instant classic.
Since then, Sheamus has seen a career resurgence alongside his Brawling Brutes stable with Butch and Ridge Holland. However, at the time of this writing, he is currently not scheduled for a match on the upcoming show.
In a new interview with Metro, the former WWE Champion expressed his belief that he should be on the card for Money In The Bank in London. He said:
“I mean, selfishly I should. If it’s with Ridge too, that’d be great. But listen, last time we were in Wales [for Clash At The Castle, I tore the bleeding roof off the place. Nobody came close.”
“Roman, Drew didn’t come close – and it was built around that match. Nobody came close to [me and GUNTHER]. Every time I’m in there, I blow the roof off the place. Doesn’t matter if it’s in Cardiff, Wales, doesn’t matter if it’s in Lexington, Kentucky, MSG, the reactions I get are insane.”
“Every time I get out there, I put on a banger. I should be the first person they’re thinking of – especially when a pay-per-view comes to Europe like that. So yeah, a hundred percent, I should be in there.”
Sheamus continued on to describe how it was always about the competition for him and with everything he has done, he should be the top name WWE thinks of for the event. He said:
“Why should I be crossing my fingers? You know what I mean? At this stage, 16 years. I’m not just sitting back and going, “I’m happy to be here”, and collect a paycheck. I’ve never been like that.”
“For me, it’s always been about [the] competitive side, the performing aspect. Everything else doesn’t even come into my mind.”
“Everything I’ve done the last 16 years, I should be the number one name that they think of, especially when a pay-per-view comes to London, a stone’s throw away from Dublin, it’s insane. Especially when I cut my teeth there.”
Sheamus is scheduled to team up with Ridge Holland to compete in a tag team gauntlet match to become number one contender for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships on the June 16 episode of WWE SmackDown.
