As seen above, this week's sitdown interview with Michael Cole features new WWE World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus. Below are highlights:

* Cole asks about cashing in to win the title at WWE Survivor Series on Sunday and asks when he decided. Sheamus says he was enjoying the show, enjoying his day off and having fun like a fan with an ale beverage. Sheamus talks about the friendship between Reigns and Dean Ambrose, and says they were enemies while in the ring. He says Reigns' victory celebration was a great moment and when Triple H walked out, that was a big opportunity for Reigns to embrace The Authority. Sheamus says when Reigns turned down the handshake and speared Triple H, he knew that was his moment.

* Sheamus talks about how good the moment felt and says this is what dreams are made of. He calls it the most important moment in his life. He says when Triple H raised his hand over Reigns while some fans were booing, nothing they said made any difference because the only thing that mattered was the title.

* Cole asks if it bothers Sheamus how some fans are calling him a sellout. He doesn't care what anyone says. He says there are Hall of Famers who never become World Champion and it's not about what people think, it's about what he thinks. He says the record books won't say he sold out, they're going to say he won the title at Survivor Series.

* Cole brings up their Tables, Ladders and Chairs match at the TLC pay-per-view and asks him what his chances are. Sheamus reminds Cole he won his first title by putting John Cena through a table. He earned Money In the Bank in a Ladder Match. He says TLC is the perfect match for him and when it's over, he will ask the WWE Universe who looks stupid now.
