WWE is now part of BT Sport. This will be WWE’s new home for its U.K. Programming. Sheamus joined a few other superstars int the U.K. to celebrate it. He gave an interview to Sports Keeda about his career recently and spoke about the time he spent outside of the WWE.
He stated that he nearly retired. "It's something that's always in the back of your mind. It's no secret that I had a couple of issues physically, a few injuries, because it is physical what we do," Sheamus said.
"And then my style as well, it trebles that, you know? There were a couple times when I thought, 'Will I make it back in there?' Especially when I got a concussion in that match after WrestleMania." Sheamus made his return to WWE TV in January.
He fought Shorty G and helped him fight The Revival. His unofficial return will take place soon. He will fight Andrade at the launch party. This will be his first match for the WWE in 9 months. Sheamus also spoke about getting in shape for his in-ring return.
"But I used that time really well, I went to physiotherapy, went to boxing, kickboxing. I got myself in the best shape possible, dropped 40 lbs," Sheamus said. "I feel better, look better, and I've never been hungrier to get back in the ring.
For me, the first ten years were just a warm-up. This is the real deal now. I'm just starting, mate. I'm telling you, by body feels amazing. I feel better at 42 than I did at 32."
