The current WWE United States Champion has trolled former titleholder John Cena in a recent social media post.
Sheamus defeated Matt Riddle to become US Champion at WrestleMania 37. Holding the title for the 3rd time, Sheamus has named himself the greatest US Champion… at the expense of John Cena.
On Twitter, Sheamus posted a photo of himself flexing next to the 16-time World Champ. The Celtic Warrior captioned the photo on Twitter:

Cena’s 2015 US Championship reigns were enjoyed by many fans, with Cena frequently hosting open challenges for the title. The Champ had great matches with the likes of Cesaro, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn with gold on the line.
Sheamus has faced Mansoor and Humberto Carrillo since his WrestleMania 37 win. Although Sheamus only won via DQ, The Celtic Warrior ended Mansoor’s 49-0 win streak.
As of writing, Sheamus isn’t set to defend his US Championship at WrestleMania Backlash tonight. You can read previews for all of tonight’s matches here.
