Sheamus has been World Heavyweight Champion since defeating Daniel Bryan in just 18 seconds at WrestleMania 28 back on April 1. As his title reign comfortably cruises past the 200-day mark, there are questions arising over the character.
Sure, he is over with the audience and the kids seem to love him, but how do true wrestling fans like you and I feel about the character?
There have been many discussions amongst the IWC about the character being shoved down the audience's throats and marketed as "John Cena 2.0," something an already stale WWE product is not in great need of.
Younger fans may enjoy the Irish brawler's dominant in-ring performances and "comedic" promos, but to engage a wider audience the character must connect with fans of all ages. And I feel as though the Sheamus character is too one-dimensional to be taken seriously.
This article will analyze why this is the case.
