WWE's Sheamus Says AEW Star Rescued His Passion For Wrestling
One of AEW's top names helped to reignite Sheamus' love of pro wrestling.
Teaming with Claudio Castagnoli reignited Sheamus' love of pro wrestling.
The WWE star told ITR that his zest for the biz had waned when he started working alongside the then-Cesaro as 'The Bar' in 2016. Claudio's skills and passion for wrestling helped to restore Sheamus' own passion, and that's why they ended up clicking as a team.
Sheamus recently earned plaudits for his performance opposite current Intercontinental Champion Gunther on WWE's Clash At The Castle special in the UK - the Irishman received a standing ovation from the Cardiff crowd, and he clearly enjoyed how physical the bout was.
That's the kind of energy Castagnoli breathed back into his bones during their stint together as 'The Bar'. Sheamus admitted during the interview that working with Cesaro was "great" for him. He also "learned a lot" from the Swiss technician during matches.
Together, Sheamus and Cesaro became four-time Raw Tag-Team Champions. They also held the SmackDown versions on one occasion, and had hot matches with everyone from The Hardys to Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.
Maybe someday they'll reunite? Don't rule it out. Don't rule anything out!
