WWE star Sheamus was on Corey Graves’ “After The Bell” podcast this week to talk about his excellent match with Gunther at Clash at the Castle and several other topics.
Sheamus talking about wanting to win the Intercontinental Championship:
“I’ve been so adamant and so vocal about the Intercontinental Championship because it is the one title that’s not sitting on this shelf right here. It’s the one I want more than anything. That’s what’s been driving me. You have to have goals, you have to have targets, and you have to know what’s next.”

“We were wrestling in front of nobody and that’s really where everything started to kick off for me Corey because I got a new lease in life in there. I got an opportunity to go in there and show everybody what I could do. There was no crowd. There was nothing else except you and Cole on the concrete floor and me in there with an opponent. That was the moment that things changed. A lot of the guys and girls were really apprehensive. It was a whole new territory. It’s very intimidating. There’s times in matches when you go through the crowd, you bring the crowd in, and take those moments, but there was no opportunity for that. It was the ring, you guys, and the opponents in the ring. I embraced that because I knew that my physicality would get a proper platform to be shown how good I am. I went there every single time and people were talking about how aggressive it was, how brutal it was, and there were no crowd shots. The physicality started there and I just ran with that. I embraced it. To me, it was an unbelievable opportunity.”
