In June 2009, Sheamus first graced the WWE Universe with his presence when he arrived on the ECW brand. Less than six months later, he was headlining pay-per-views against John Cena as WWE champion.
Sheamus is among an elite few that have captured a world championship within months of their debut. Going against the popular saying “the faster they rise, the faster they fall,” he has maintained stability as a performer over the last five years, still achieving success to this day.
From his series of matches against Goldust on ECW to headlining WrestleManias with Triple H and Daniel Bryan, Sheamus has seemingly done it all in a brief period of time with WWE, but he still has a lot left to accomplish.
In light of this special anniversary, I’ll highlight the top 10 moments in the WWE career of Sheamus over the last five years. One can only assume that these moments are only the beginning of his tenure going forward.
