Source: ESPNESPN has an interview with Sheamus promoting this Sunday's WrestleMania. Here are some highlights:
Which match he is most looking forward to this Sunday, other than his: "As a fan all my life, I can't wait to watch them all. I was a big fan of The Rock back home in Ireland, and he's just such a tremendous icon and a tremendous superstar that I can't wait to see what happens when he gets in the ring with John Cena. The Rock will always be remembered as a WWE legend, and John Cena has literally been pulling the WWE wagon for the last eight to ten years. These are two superstars going head-to-head in a once in a lifetime match, and I can guarantee you that every superstar in the back is going to be watching along with all of the fans at home. We can't wait to see what happens."
Wrestlers backstage resenting The Rock's return: "Rock's been nothing but cool to me. I haven't said too much to him, we're all so busy backstage doing stuff for Wrestlemania, but I'll be honest with you, Rock came over to me, shook my hand, and introduced himself to me from day one. When I see him on Mondays, I ask him how he's doing, and he asks the same of me. I have no problem with him at all. He's been nothing but cool to me. I have no problem with The Rock. He's as cool as ice."
Facing Daniel Bryan after their match was scrapped last year: "Absolutely, it's poetic justice. That was an incredible low for me last year. I went from Wrestlemania 26 against Triple H, to being a two-time WWE champion and King of the Ring, to not even being on the show. That was a hard pill to swallow. But in a way, when I look back, that was great because when I walked out of that building last year, I was more determined than ever to start fresh the next day and come back in the top spot. Things happen for a reason, and maybe at the time, that's not the reason you want to hear, but you need to use it as motivation. If people are unhappy about The Rock stepping in, they need step up their game and use it as motivation to get back next year. If you show what you can do during the course of the year, you can grab one of the top spots at next year's Wrestlemania."
