Source: Chad Dukes WrestlingSheamus spoke with The Chad Dukes Wrestling Show to discuss his recovery from surgery, the Elimination Chamber match, WWE Network, England vs. Ireland in Six Nations Rugby Match, and the Shield versus the Wyatts. Here are some highlights, you can check out the full interview by clicking here.
What he was up to while recovering from surgery and holding off his return to the ring:
"I got back home to Ireland, saw my 91-year-old grand mother. She was asking me why I'm running around half-naked on national, global television. 'We didn't do that back in my day,' she said. And I got to see me Ma, on the west coast of Ireland. I got to see my friends & family, and I got to reflect on my last couple years which I hadn't got to do before that. You know a lot of things, but after about three months I was ready to come back.
"I actually got cleared kinda early as well, with my surgery, but I've just been kinda waiting to come back. I wanted to get the right time and at the Rumble was the right time I think. So I came back at the Rumble, now I feel like I'm starting from scratch again. I'm going out there every week to remind people who I am."
The Elimination Chamber Match:
"You can't really prepare for it. I mean you're right, you're better off watching from the outside rather than being on the inside because it can get pretty hairy in there. It really is one of THE toughest matches. I mean physically, it's THE toughest match you can possibly have in WWE. And so much at stake too, anything and everything can happen. That's the thing, matches, you can be in certain situations where the structure around you or the objects around you can cause a lot of damage but it's all about what's at stake, and what's at stake here is the WWE World Heavyweight Championship that Randy Orton has and with that also a main event match at WrestleMania 30 against Batista. So everybody in there knows it's the opportunity of a lifetime, to headline the biggest, greatest WrestleMania ever. So everybody in there is going to be taking risks they wouldn't normally take."
"People don't really know about this, but William Regal has been a fantastic mentor to me, him and Fit Finlay have been tremendous mentors to me in my time in WWE. Everyone talks about Triple H, Triple H has been a great help but on the road from day one, Regal has been the one who's helped me. Arn Anderson too, as well."
The WWE Network:
"I mean let's be honest, $9.99 and you get every pay-per-view? You also get access on open to a 1000 hours of pay per view vault footage, all pay per views, which is going to be updated on a regular basis. Huge Content. There's gonna be preshows on Raw and Smackdown, and post shows. It's a tremendous opportunity to watch what you want when you want.
"Especially for us too. All us superstars we're all fans of wrestling: WWE, ECW, WCW, and the rest WCCW and NWA. We grew up watching all these different superstars who are no longer active right now. It's very hard for us on the road to bring those DVDs with us, you don't have a DVD player, but now with your Ipad or your phone you can literally pull up any footage of any match you want anytime, any show. It's gonna be incredible it really is. It really is groundbreaking.
