Sheamus Is Being Overlooked by WWE Creative Department

Don't look now, but Sheamus is being neglected by the WWE creative department.

For certain wrestling fans, a wrestler being on television every week is considered a push. For those of us that look a bit closer, though, that doesn't mean as much if the wrestler isn't being given the proper attention from the creative department.

Sheamus gets plenty of air time each week. He's regularly seen on Monday Night Raw, Smackdown, Main Event and the various pay-per-view events.

That doesn't come as a much of a surprise, though. After all, Sheamus is still being promoted by the company as one of the top names.

What does come as a surprise, though, is that he's not actually doing anything substantial. He's basically being used as filler right now.

Instead of being concentrated on a feud with a proper story behind it, Sheamus is all over the place right now. The former World Heavyweight Champion has been battling the Shield, 3MB and Cody Rhodes, while randomly teaming up with the other top-level babyfaces like Ryback, John Cena, Randy Orton and Alberto Del Rio.

Obviously, that type of exposure would be highly coveted by the lower-level guys in the company like Justin Gabriel, Brodus Clay, Great Khali and the Usos. Sheamus, though, is not a lower-level guy by any means.

During this time of year, WrestleMania rumors and speculations spread like wildfire. We've heard a million rumors about Triple H, CM Punk, Brock Lesnar and Undertaker, but very few things have been muttered about Sheamus.

It appears that since the creative department is occupied with Alberto Del Rio as the top babyface on Smackdown, which leaves Sheamus lost in the shuffle. It's a shame that the company can't spare some resources to find him a proper role (such as elevating a mid-card heel closer to the top level).

There's nothing wrong with rotating wrestlers in and out of the top spot, but the writers should at least give a little more attention to Sheamus at the moment. He can still be a valuable resource to the product.
