Sheamus is one of the most popular WWE superstars thanks to his partnership with Cesaro. After becoming part of the WWE main roster in 2009, he would go on to be a four-time world champion, having held the WWE (World Heavyweight) Championship three times and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship once.
He is the first Irish world champion in WWE history and is also a two-time United States Champion and a five-time tag team champion (four Raw and one SmackDown) with his partner Cesaro. During an interview with Inside the Ropes, Sheamus commented on WrestleMania 35: "We’re all very excited for Kofi.
I think this WrestleMania has a lot of cool stories like that. We have Kofi Kingston, you know, and it feels like the WWE universe kind of willed him into that spot. And the same with Becky Lynch, you know, we’re obviously very excited for the first-ever women’s triple threat main event at WrestleMania.
And I feel like that’s just a reflection of what the crowd wants. And I think you can see actually, because we are in Brooklyn, that kind of started at SummerSlam with Becky”. On Cesaro: "When the subject turned to the possibility of a Cesaro run, Sheamus said, “I’ve always said, at least in the last couple of years, one title I haven’t won is the Intercontinental Title.
But I’d rather see (Cesaro) win the (World Title) than me win the Intercontinental Title. I’d rather see him be the World Champion. He deserves it."
