"I also loved Bret and Shawn at WrestleMania XII. I was really torn, I liked both of them but I was more a Bret Hart fan at the time. When he lost, I was gutted. Another great -- well, I don't know if it was great, but a hyped-up match -- was Ultimate Warrior vs. Hulk Hogan. I was never a Hogan fan, I was an Ultimate Warrior fan. I just like Warriors' energy in the ring. I just remembering hoping Warrior would beat Hogan.
"Those are the type of matches that are great, where you're torn between the two."
On Bret Hart motivating him to become a WWE superstar: "He was the first person, it was unbelievable. I always wanted to be a WWE superstar, I just knew it was the route to go. I remember I was working at a club called Lillie's Bordello where I worked part-time just to get some extra cash.
"He came in to the club in Dublin and I asked him a question about getting a career in WWE. First, he sat down and he was there with his daughter. He sat me down and gave me some really great advice."
What is his personal fantasy match-up for himself: "Undertaker. Absolutely Undertaker. I was absolutely gutted [when I lost the four-way between myself, C.M. Punk, Big Show and Randy Orton]. That was the match I wanted. The 'Dead Man', he's one of the biggest legends and greatest superstars there ever will be in our business. To be able to step into the ring with him at WrestleMania, fella, there would be nothing bigger.
On the International Olympic Committee taking amateur wrestling out of the Olympics: "I think the people on the committee have completely lost their marbles. I think that is the most bizarre, ridiculous thing I have ever heard in my entire life. They're literally removing one of the core sports of the Olympics that's been there since the very beginning: Greco-Roman wrestling. And they're taking it out to put in, what? What's in there now? Badminton? Table tennis? Fly-fishing? Stamp collecting? Is stamp collecting in the Olympics now?
"I'll be honest, that's lost all credibility with me. I think that should be one of the core sports. Taking it out is ridiculous. I think they should be removed from their position in the committee because they have no idea what they're doing."
Sheamus also gave his predictions for this year's big events in the video below:
