Source: WWEAs noted yesterday, WWE's website has an article up looking at seven Superstars that World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus wants to fight. He listed Big Show, CM Punk, Brock Lesnar, Kane, Wade Barrett, Randy Orton and The Undertaker.
Here's what Sheamus had to say about each:
Undertaker: "I've achieved pretty much everything — WWE Champion, World Heavyweight Champion, Royal Rumble winner, King of the Ring — all that's left for me to do really is to take out The Streak."
Orton: "Me and [Randy] Orton are no strangers to each other. I have a lot of respect for him, though I'm not sure how he feels about me. If he's top contender for the World Heavyweight Championship, I'm more than happy to give him that opportunity."
Barrett: "There's a good rivalry between Ireland and England. Barrett and I definitely mixed it up in the past. It's never pretty, but it's always a great fight and I'm sure there's going to be plenty more opportunities for people to see the two of us go at it."
Kane: "I've faced off with Kane before. He's another larger-than-life Superstar. It doesn't happen a lot, but I'd be the smaller guy in that fight. That's OK — it would be great to go in there and mix it up with [The Big Red Monster]."
Punk: "I think a match with [CM] Punk would be great. Talking about dream matches, I think the WWE Champion against the World Heavyweight Champion is a match people would like to see. He calls himself 'The Best in the World' — I'd like him to prove it in the ring with me."
Show: "Big Show has achieved so much in WWE, and for me, the tougher the fight, the better. And what tougher fight is there than against the 7-foot giant?"
Lesnar: "Brock Lesnar? Absolutely, fella. [He's a] fellow ginger with an aggressive streak in him. You talk about how aggressive I am, but I think [Lesnar] would definitely be one of the toughest opponents I'd face in my life."
