Sheamus recently reflected on wanting to make a positive contribution to the careers of younger talent as other WWE stars had done for him.
Speaking to TVInsider, Sheamus spoke about his role within the company as a veteran, noting:
“I’m a firm believer in helping talent. I’ve never been one of these people worried about my spot or what if he comes in and becomes more popular than me. I’ve done a lot. There is one thing I haven’t done, which is winning the IC [Intercontinental] title. Something on my radar right now. I will say I’ve been doing that a lot—working with young guys. I think there is a lot of great potential in Ridge [Holland.] He has such explosive power and speed. He looks the part. He is from England, so now there is another person to get behind. I want to help him in any way I can. That’s my role, and I enjoy it.”
Sheamus went on to reflect on how he is able to use his in-ring experience to mentor younger talent, recalling working with veteran talent when he was new in WWE, saying:
“I was in the ring with Rick Boogs a couple of weeks ago on live events, and I enjoyed it. The first night wasn’t great. The second night in Boston I had a lot of ideas to help make his performance better, and what would suit him. I’m not only thinking about myself but the guys I’m in the ring with. That’s the way it should be with everyone. [William] Regal did that for me. I got to work with Batista, John Cena, Triple H. They were always helpful to me…I want to do what I was taught, especially the ones that want the help and are passionate. I enjoy that part of the process as much as doing my own thing in the ring. I feel like I’m in a great place and spot.”
Sheamus has been announced as an entrant for the 2022 Royal Rumble, giving him the opportunity to be a two-time Royal Rumble winner, having previously outlasted 29 other competitors ten years ago at the 2012 event.
