Ever since losing his World Heavyweight Championship to the Big Show, Sheamus seems to be stuck in WWE limbo.
Booked to compete against Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reign—the team better known as the Shield—at this month's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in a six-man tag team match that will feature John Cena and Ryack as Sheamus' partners, Sheamus is in a good position to once again regain the WWE's main event. However, in order for the Irish-born superstar to build on the momentum that this match could build for him he needs to enter a feud with another wrestler.
The possibilities are multiple, but here is a short list of five WWE superstars that Sheamus could feud with.
It's no secret that the Irish are not exactly fans of the British, why not bring the real-life animosity between these two groups and settle things in the ring between the Englishman Wade Barrett and the Irishman Sheamus?
These two men both use brawling styles that could be used to put together a series of street fights or no disqualification matches.
As I recently wrote in another article, a feud between Mark Henry and Sheamus would not only be highly entertaining to watch, but smart booking.
The brawling style of Sheamus combined with the power of Mark Henry could make for a series of interesting matches.
These two men could wrestle a series of Broadway matches resulting in a slow building but powerful feud.
Sheamus is known for his proletariat background. A hard worker and a bit of a hooligan, the Great White could provide the perfect foil for the highly refined Damien Sandow.
These two men could put on a series of great matches were class differences are set aside for a good old-fashioned brawl.
Cody Rhodes' and Sheamus' recently WWE Main Event match is hopefully a sample of a great feud to come.
In a battle of mustache versus beard, these two men could be capable of putting together a great series of matches.
With Rhodes really coming into his own, now that the second-generation star has grown a mustache, a feud against Sheamus may be beneficial to both men.
Despite being the current Mr. Money in the Bank, it looks like Dolph Ziggler wont be entering any big time feuds, not that his feud with WWE posterboy, John Cena, is essentially over.
Why not build on the heat that Ziggler has by pairing him with Sheamus, another of the company's top good guys.
A feud between Ziggler and Sheamus could allow both of these men to float to the top of the card or at the very least keep them from sinking down to the midcard scene.
