Yes, I am serious. Before I go any further, let me make a few notes:
1. This goes for live events, TV shows, and PPV events. Everything WWE!
2. This ONLY covers single's matches. Not four ways, tag matches, etc.
3. After WrestleMania in Miami, it is back to "fair game" for Sheamus.
I have been saying this for months now, but it is finally time for WWE to step up their game. For those who read my other article, you may notice I always cover Sheamus and write "he must keep winning" after his segments.
Well, that may seem like a pretty straight forward remark, but it carries a lot of meaning.
Sheamus is going to be a major star for this company one day. It may be next year. It may be in three years. It may be in 10 years. It doesn't matter how long it takes—his ascension to the top of WWE is already beginning.
All you have to do is watch the Blue Brand to realize how great his future looks right now. Not only that, but his time on Raw has also been picking up in recent months.
Why is that so important? Well, I just looked, and it's January! That means it is time for the Royal Rumble, which means WrestleMania is right around the corner.
With a big talent on the rise, now is the time to strike. Sheamus has been treated as a big deal for most of his WWE career (forget a few months in there). His bandwagon is about to become very full with fans jumping on.
Not only does he have a wonderful chance to win the Rumble, but his "face turn" has been accepted by fans. Amazing news for the Celtic Warrior!
That is why he needs to keep on rolling. Next week, he faces Jinder Mahal. I do not see any reason for him to lose there. Thus, it is yet another victory for Sheamus on his path to greatness in this industry.
Now, I am not predicting some long "winning" streak. That is not the intention here. My intention is to simply state the obvious. Sheamus needs to keep winning...and often!
He needs to be on every show and win on every show. I do not care if it is two-minute match. I do not care if it is a 20-minute classic. He needs to win.
All of that will build him up as a huge star for WrestleMania. WWE may already have a gigantic main event set for Miami, but making another legitimate top star in Sheamus would not be bad either.
The only roadblocks I see are the Rumble match and the Elimination Chamber match. Assuming he is in both, I could see a loss at one (or both). However, I am focused on solo matches only.
Wins and losses may not mean much in WWE anymore, but that is not always the case. Look at Mark Henry in 2011. Look at John Morrison in 2011.
Now, look at Sheamus. Take a good look at him because I do not plan on seeing him lose very often for the next few months. A match here or there? Yes. Anything major? No.
What do you folks think? Is Sheamus going to have a huge couple of months? Let me know.
