Sheamus would rather have fun than be world champion right now

During an interview with the UK Mirror, Sheamus was asked about working with Cesaro. He loves it, of course, because most wrestlers who work with The Swiss Superman do, but he’s got other reasons for being such a fan of it:

"Oh I love it man. I have to say the only other person who was as physical as him or who I've enjoyed wrestling as much as him was Daniel Bryan, and we wrestled a ton of times, on TV and off TV. I love wrestling him. The competition between me and him is great. It's been an interesting couple of weeks since Mick Foley put us together as a team. We've had a lot of fun. Somebody asked me the other day 'do you want to be Universal Champion or WWE World Champion?' and I basically said 'I've done all that sort of stuff, I've won the titles many times, a Rumble and stuff like that, but for me at this stage it's more about exploring my character and having fun'. I feel like with the League of Nations, we didn't have that range or that opportunity to delve into our characters or the interplay between us all, it was mainly just having matches, with no character stuff. Already there has been a ton of that with this. I'm really enjoying it and having fun - we're bouncing off each other."

That attitude could come, at least in part, from the fact that his last run as WWE champion was all about getting Roman Reigns over as the top babyface star. That’s fine, of course, but doesn’t leave a lot of room for Sheamus to grow within his character, or have fun with what he’s tasked with doing.

This angle with Cesaro is all about that.

It may be great for Sheamus but is it great for you?
